Greek Star Goddess

Also known as Asterie, Delos

Quailing Star Goddess

Daughter of Coeus and Phoebe, she was the mother of Hecate and another object of Zeus’s affections.

He chased her all over the place, until finally she changed into a quail to escape him. Zeus thought about this and turned himself into a quail too, but Asteria cast herself into the sea and turned into an island.

Zeus turned the quail failure around by pursuing her sister Leto instead.
