Satyrs

Half-man and half-goat, Satyrs look mostly human from the waist up, with two goat-like legs and horns. They walk on two legs and have human intelligence.

Silenus is the leader of a satyr gang. His gang likes heavy metal rock music, including mosh pits and crowd body surfing. According to Hercules, his gang never comes out of the forest.

The Myth

  • In Greek mythology, a satyr is one of a troop of ithyphallic male companions of Dionysus with horse-like (equine) features, including a horse-tail, horse-like ears, and sometimes a horse-like phallus. Early artistic representations sometimes include horse-like legs, but in 6th-century BC black-figure pottery human legs are the most common. In Roman Mythology there is a concept similar to satyrs, with goat-like features: the faun, being half-man, half-goat. Greek-speaking Romans often used the Greek term saturos when referring to the Latin faunus, and eventually syncretized the two. - Wikipedia
