Boreas (Βορέα in Ancient Greek) is one of the four seasonal winds that work for Aeolus, the master of all winds. Boreas is the North Wind and the god of winter. As Western Civilization moved to the United States, he settled down in Quebec, Canada, the oldest settlement in the North. His Roman counterpart is Aquilon.

History

Boreas was known for his abduction of Orithyia, the daughter of King Erechtheus of Athens. Boreas wooed Orithyia, but she declined many times. Boreas eventually decided to take her by force, covering her in a cloud, spiriting her away and transforming her into his immortal wife. She would bear him an immortal daughter, Khione, and two mortal sons, Calais and Zethes. With his brother; Zephyr, Boreas dwelt in the mountains of Thrace. Boreas' winds can be powerful and violent, causing great destruction.

Boreas was closely associated with horses. He was said to have fathered twelve colts after taking the form of a stallion, to the mares of Erichthonius, King of Troy. These were said to be able to run across a field of grain without trampling the plants.

Appearance

He is described as being a sturdily built man. He wears a suit that appears to be made of snow, and has a pair of dark purple wings. Additionally, he is said to have long hair and a beard, both of which are covered in ice.

Aquilon
