Greek North Wind God

God of the North Wind

One of the fours sons of EOS and ASTRAEUS, he’s a bluff hearty God who’s always willing to blow favor to his fans. Not in the least chilly. Apart from temperature-wise, of course.

Married to OREITHYIA, his daughter is CHIONE, the Goddess of Snow, and his sons are the BOREADS. See also the AURAI.
