Zephyr, the Wind of the West
Zephyr was the gentle wind of the West and the mediator between the world of the living and the underworld. Zephyr was the fresh wind that brought the spring rains so precious to the awakening of nature.

Zephyr was the son of Astraeus and Eos, the goddess of the dawn, and he was the father of the spring flowers. His consort was Podarge, and together they created the two immortal horses of Achilles, Xanthus and Balius.

Zephyrus was the wind that led Aphrodite to the sea of Paphos at her birth and the only wind that helped Odysseus find his way to Ithaca.
