Pegasus was an immortal winged horse in Greek mythology. He was the offspring of Medusa, a monstrous, snake-haired woman, and Poseidon, god of horses and of the sea. The hero Perseus slew Medusa by cutting off her head. Pegasus sprang full-grown either from her head or neck, or from the blood from her neck.

The hero Bellerophon wanted to tame Pegasus. A prophet advised him to sleep on the altar of the goddess Athena. There, Bellerophon dreamed that the goddess gave him a golden bridle and ordered him to make a sacrifice to Poseidon. When he awoke, Bellerophon found a bridle on the altar. He sacrificed a bull to Poseidon and later came upon Pegasus at a spring, waiting to be bridled.

Bellerophon rode Pegasus on many adventures. Their most famous feat was destroying the fire-breathing Chimera. Bellerophon attempted to ride Pegasus up to Mount Olympus, the heavenly home of the gods. Zeus, king of the gods, was angered by the mortal's presumption in attempting to reach the heavens. Zeus sent a gadfly to sting Pegasus. The horse bucked, throwing Bellerophon down to earth and permanently crippling him. Pegasus arrived on Olympus without a rider. The horse remained there, carrying Zeus's lightning and thunderbolts, and becoming the constellation of the same name. A kick from his hoof created the fountain of Hippocrene, the source of poetic inspiration.

Ok, I'm just trying to prevent a "Mythological Gods" challenge turning into "Mythological beasts," as I noticed you were modelling Pegasus and Garry was modelling Charon. Both are a part of mythology but not "Gods" per se. Also, JB, I think mentioned Sauron, which isn't historical mythology at all. Sorry, if I'm sounding like the mythology police (or just a plain dork)...."Mythological Gods" is such a specific topic for the challenge. Changing it to "Mythology" alone would open the doors to many more creatures. Otherwise, I think people need to stick within the boundaries of "Gods." And there are TONS of them what with all the beliefs in the world, both past and present.

This could be interesting

Good Luck!
