Pegasus, the beautiful winged horse of Greek mythology, comes from a tradition littered with hybrid creatures – centaurs that are half man and half horse, fauns – half man and half goat, furies and harpies – half women and half flesh tearing birds, serpents that speak through the mouths of half-drugged oracles like the snake and the Oracle of Delphi.
But in the Greek menagerie of mythical creatures, Pegasus is unique.
He doesn’t speak. He isn’t a trickster setting traps, riddles or challenges for the heroes of his stories or god in disguise trying to seduce young maidens. Quite simply, Pegasus is a beautiful and brave white stallion who performs dutifully and without question for the riders who tame him. He is a horse who has the characteristics people associate with horses – strength, loyalty, speed.
Of course there is a difference between Pegasus and your average garden variety horse; Pegasus has beautiful feathered wings, and he can fly.
