The series kicks off with him and his bodyguard Butler kidnapping L.
Art Connections Pleiades Mythology The mythology associated with the Pleiades cluster is extensive; Burnham alone devotes eight pages to the subject, and Allen more than twice that number see references. Here only Greek legends are presented.
Even so, these are manifold and often contradictory, being patched together from many different cultures over a long period of time.
Further uncertainty is added by most Pleiads sharing names with otherwise unrelated mythological characters. So enjoy, but please do not consider this information to be infallible. Individual Sisters For each, a name translation is given first, followed by available biographical information, and parallel stories of like-named characters.
The actual bird does not build nests however; instead the story probably derives from an old pagan observance of the turning season, with the moon-goddess conveying a dead symbolic king of the old year to his resting place.
Though this Alcyone and the Pleiad Alcyone appear to be separate individuals, they may be related: In others, Oenomaus was her husband, and they had a beautiful daughter, Hippodaima, and three sons, Leucippus, Hippodamus, and Dysponteus, founder of Dyspontium; or, Oenomaus may instead have had these children with Euarete, daughter of Acrisius.
Another Asterope was daughter of the river Cebren. Graves mentions her as a Pleiad only in passing, with no other mention in the other references.
Perhaps she was at one time a Pleiad when different names were used, or an earlier version of Sterope, whose name is similar; or perhaps Graves is incorrect.
He also in passing calls the titan or oak-goddess Dione a Pleiad, without explanation or corroboration. Does the term have a broader meaning in some contexts?
Called Atlantis by Ovid, personifying the family. May also, by Thaumas, be the mother of the Harpies, foul bird-women who lived in a Cretan cave and harried criminals, but this could be a different ocean-nymph of the same name.

Another Electra was a daughter of Oedipus, though this may not be the same Oedipus who killed his father and married his mother. She is said to be mother of Dardanus and Iason. Seduced by Zeus and gave birth to Hermes. Farmers were cautioned not to sow grain before the time of her setting, or conjunction with the sun.
The month of May is named after her, and is coincidentally? By our modern calendar, the conjunction occurred in April in early Roman times, with the shift since then due to the precession of the Earth's axis; but calendars too have changed over time, especially before the time of Julius Caesar, so the month and the cluster's solar conjunction may have lined up then as well.
Glaucus or Glaukos was father of Bellerophon, and in one story was killed by horses maddened by Aphrodite because he would not let them breed.
Another Glaucus was a fisherman of Boeotia who became a sea-god gifted with prophecy and instructed Apollo in soothsaying. Still another Glaucus was a son of Minos who drowned in a vat of honey and was revived by the seer Polyidos, who instructed Glaucus in divination, but, angry at being made a prisoner, caused the boy to forget everything when Polyidos finally left Crete.
The word glaukos means gleaming, bluish green or gray, perhaps describing the appearance of a blind eye if glaucoma cataract derives from it.
Is the name Glaucus a reference to sight, or blindness, physical or otherwise? It is also curious that meropia is a condition of partial blindness.
