PORUS

Greek Wisdom God

Also known as Poros

God of Expediency

What does that mean?

The son of ultra-wise Metis, he’s the personification of suitability and readiness. In other words, wisdom leads to being prepared.

If that’s too obscurely figurative for you, consider his marriage to Penia, the Goddess of Poverty. She’s always hoping to better herself, while he provides the means to do so. It doesn’t seem to have worked so far, but give them time.
