The Hunter In The Sky
He was loved by the goddess of the Dawn, Eos, and for this, he was punished by Artemis, who swooped down and slew him painlessly with a silver arrow. As a reward for being struck down, Orion was given a place in the heavens as a mighty constellation. He now walks the heavens as the giant and hunter he was on earth in the age of Heroes.
