PALLAS

Greek War God

The winged husband of Styx

One of the second generation TITANS, he is married to STYX and is the father of various victory-seeking deities such as NIKE. Possibly also (if the rumors are true) EOS.

Some legends claim that he’s the father of ATHENA, possibly because of her nickname PALLAS-ATHENA. He attempted to rape her but she skinned him — and used his skin to cover her shield. She found that his wings, once attached to her feet, came in very useful for those Business Class Air Travels.

Note: Pallas is quite a common name in Greek mythology. Apparently it was the ancient world’s equivalent of Joe. To avoid confusion, see also PALLAS(2), PALLAS(3), PALLAS(4) and PALLAS(5).
