"Myka the Goddess Witch": When the father of all gods, Zeus, discovered his beloved daughter Athena was pregnant with Apollo's baby, he ordered all gods and goddesses to keep it a secret because he wanted all mortals to believe Athena was an eternal virgin.
The moment I was born Zeus gave me away to a loyal mortal "witch" named Maia, which means "nursing mother".
"Nereid of the Forest": I am ‘Eunice' daughter of one of Nereus and Doris' 50 Nereid daughters named "Galatea".
She never disclosed who my father was to anyone.
My mother, her sisters and offspring are known as Nereid's or "Sea Nymphs". Most of them live in the ocean but some, like my mother and a few others, chose to live in the forest.
Every 50 years my Nereid family has to sacrifice a princess to "Lamia", the child eating demon.
However, the princess has to be 19 years old at the time of her sacrifice. No one knows why Lamia wants a teenager if she only eats small children.
The way the princess is chosen is by electing the girl who is going to be the right age one or two months before the first day of winter.
My family made such horrible pact with Lamia many centuries ago to stop her from eating their children.
When time comes for the sacrifice, the chosen Nereid is taken inside a cave named "Hells Mouth"!
