ALCYONE

Greek Multi-talented Spirit

Also known as HALCYONE

Special offer - two spirits for the price of one

She comes in two versions.

No. 1 as one of the PLEIADES via POSEIDON.

No. 2 as being happily married to Cyx, who was son of the Morning Star but sadly mortal. When he was shipwrecked and drowned she was inconsolable.

As the shipwreck had been caused by ZEUS and HERA in a fit of jealousy at seeing a couple so much happier than them, they then took pity and turned the lovers into a couple of immortal kingfishers.
