BOREADS

Greek Hero Gods

Also known as CALAIS, KALAIS, ZETES, ZETHES

Twin Sons of Boreas

Calais and Zetes are two Winged Wind Heroes.

Twin sons of Wind God BOREAS and his wife OREITHYIA, they were members of the Argonauts and had several adventures, including a tussle with the HARPIES.

The BOREADS pop up all over the place, and claim their sister is Cleopatra. Or is it vice-versa? All very confusing and nothing to do with a French port as far as we know.
