Greek Hunting legendary mortal

The Hunter, that one with the Belt

Giant mortal son of Poseidon and Euryale.

He must have been very big once as you can see his belt in the sky. Where the rest of him is we don’t know. Try joining the dots.

His life was filled with unhappy love affairs, mostly because he couldn’t help falling for girls above his station. If you’re a king and Orion pays a visit, our advice is to lock up your daughter and call the police.

He’s a typical macho hunter type, and he mostly hunts females. (See Artemis.) He may also have been involved in the motor industry at one time. Is he anything to do with safety belts? There is another rumor that he is in Ireland and has changed his name to O’Ryan.
