God of the North Wind

One of the fours sons of Eos and Astraeus, he’s a bluff hearty God who’s always willing to blow favor to his fans. Not in the least chilly. Apart from temperature-wise, of course.

Married to Oreithyia, his daughter is Chione, the Goddess of Snow, and his sons are the Boreads. See also the Aurai.
