Greek West Wind God

Also known as ZEPHYROS, ZEPHYRS

God of the West Wind

One of the fours sons of EOS and ASTRAEUS, he’s gentle and breezy and loves rustling the leaves of flowers. Such a softie.

ZEPHYRUS sired lots of cherubic windlets, including several of the AURAI, and also the light breezes known as Zephyrs. He also fathered ACHILLES’s supernatural horses BALIUS and XANTHUS with either AELLO or CELAENO.
