God of wine, fertility, ecstasy, and theater. Dionysus is the life and soul of the party. He invented wine and spread the art of tending grapes. He has a dual nature. On the one hand bringing joy and devine ecstasy. On the other brutal, unthinking, rage. Thus, reflecting both sides of wines nature. In the myth of Bacchus (the Roman incarnation of Dionysus), Bacchus fell asleep on the beach, and was kidnapped by pirate sailors, who thought someone so well-dressed must be a prince. Bacchus woke up and told them who he was. The sailors didnt believe him. Bacchus then revealed himself in all his glory: he grew to such a large size, he filled the ship, with vines entwining the sails. The sailors panicked and jumped into the sea. Bacchus felt sorry for them, and turned them into dolphins. The ancient Greeks thought this explained why dolphins are so intelligent.
