CELAENO (2)

Greek Star Spirit

Also known as Celoneo, Kelaino

The slightly dim one in the Seven Sisters

A star of the Pleiades sisters. Another Poseidon conquest. She appears a little less bright than the rest — her name means ‘the Dark One’.

Due to a similarity of names, she is easily confused with Celaeno the harpy. It might seem odd to mistake a pleasant little star for a vicious harpy, but you know how these rumors get started. After all, they never appear together at events and no-one has ever seen them both in the same room.
