Ghosts And Spirits Index





These Greek beings each with the head, torsos and arms of a man and the body of a horse descend from the first king of Thessaly and the cloud Nephele, and hold allegiance only to Eros, god of love, and Dionysius, god of wine. They are handsome and sensual, delighting in drunken brawls, and are often warlike, using clubs made from young pine trees, spears and arrows. An exception is Chiron, a studious, wise centaur who tutored many Greek heroes and can now be seen in the heavens as the constellation Sagittarius.
