Mythological Characters

Procrus / Procris

- daughter of the Athenian king Erechtheus and the wife of Cephalus
- Cephalus wanted to return to his wife, so Eos made him return to his wife in a different person, who ended up being Procris. Procris felt too ashamed after finding out he was her husband(actually not) that she returned to serving Artemis. When Cephalus went back to get her, Procris gave him the javelin that never missed and the hound that could outrun. Procris later died of Cephalus's javelin throw, which stabbed her.
- in the picture, Procris is the one behind the tree on the right
