PLEIADES

Greek Multi-talented Spirits

Also known as ATLANTIDES

Seven Starry Sisters

More daughters of ATLAS who sought stardom after nearly having their careers ruined by ORION.

They all had casting couch affairs with leading directors of the day except one, Merore, who was propositioned by SISYPHUS, a pushy mortal so she doesn’t get to shine so brightly as the others.

MAIA, TAYGETE and ELECTRA were chosen by ZEUS giving a three-star rating. ALCYONE and CELAENO(2) got POSEIDON and a two-star rating. STEROPE got ARES, so we only give her one star.
