The Winds

Children of Eos (Dawn)

The Winds are Immortals who have chosen the air as their bodies. In the oldest myths there were only four Winds: Boreas (North), Eurus (East), Notus (South) and Zephyros (West). Later, the Classical Greeks embellished the stories and added four new entities to represent The Winds: Kaikias (Caicias), Apeliotes, Lips and Skiron (Sciron).
