Today I’m going to share yet another mythological figure who plays an important role in The Petros Chronicles. In fact, today’s featured character is the “guard dog,” (guard beast is more like it!) of the Underworld’s palace.
Orpheus’ love story is regarded as one of the most tragic of all time. His beloved Eurydice was killed by a viper bite just after their wedding. Overcome with grief, the poet roamed the world, playing mournful, heartrending songs on his lyre. The ballads were so moving, so grippingly poignant, that even the gods of Olympus took notice.
