SatyrThis is a featured page

In Greek mythology, satyrs (in Greek, Σάτυροι — Sátyroi) are a troop of male companions of Pan and Dionysus— "satyresses" were a late invention of poets— that roamed the woods and mountains. In mythology they are often associated with male sex drive and vase-painters often portrayed them with erections. They are also associated with wine.

Satyrs are described as having a strong human torso and goat legs, a goat tail, pointed ears, horns, curly hair and full beards, like fauns. Philoctetes, (phil) from Hercules the movie was a satyr. In older depictions, however, Satyr appear as men with the tails of horses, and the change in appearance was likely due to their association with Pan and the assymilation of mythologies within an expansive culture.

Satyrs are considered good creatures.
