PHEME

Greek Gossip Goddess

Also known as Phema, Phemes

Goddess of Gossip

The last daughter of Gaia, she is a terrible winged creature who delights in ruffling feathers. Her own feathers are never still; beneath every one is a prying eye, a pricked ear and a wagging tongue. She flies from place to place at great speed, gabbling and screeching lies and half-truths to any that will listen.

Known to the Romans as Fama, she is close friends with rumor-monger Ossa. They’re both as popular today as they ever were.
