She is pale, beautiful and indefinably alluring. Her brother is HELIOS, the Sun and her sister is EOS, the Dawn. Secretive and shy, she enjoys flitting silently through the night with a pearl-white or silvery chariot.
But she quite likes being glimpsed through the clouds — and her coyness is somewhat calculated. For SELENE also enjoys romance, and has shared kisses with more people than you could count on a long winter’s night.
In keeping with her magical allure, she is the patron of wizards and magicians. Was it a member of the magic fraternity who spread the rumor that her reflection in water could be trapped?

Well, we tried that and it didn’t work. What a tease.
