God of Comedy, Jokes and Revelry

Always good for a laugh, and a bit of a practical joker.

He’s the son of Circe and Dionysus (or possibly Hermes), and must have inherited his parent’s talent for brewing and sorcery because he invented a magic potion which gives anyone who tastes it the head of a beast.

Later found fame as Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (“Tremendous entertainment — Glasgow Herald”) and revitalized the sit-com industry.
