Hermes, God of Messengers

Hermes is the Olympian God of all those who survive by their wits as well as the messenger of the Gods.


In Greek mythology, Hermes was one of the tewlve mighty gods who lived atop Mount Olympus. He was the god of sheperds, travelers, merchants, thieves, and all others who lived by their wits. His mother was Maia, a Titan's daughter so Hermes was born in a faraway cave on Mount Cyllene, to escape Hera's wrath. As a newborn babe, he stole twelve of Apollo's cows without leaving a trace. Apollo was angry until Hermes offered him the lyre he had made for the whole herd. Hermes was the merriest of Olympians and was favored by all gods, goddesses, and mortals. He and Apollo became the best of friends and even though Hermes was the god of liars and theives, he never stole or lied- but he often didn't tell the whole truth.
