11.7.11 PANDORA, GODDESS OF MISCHIEF

Born of the seed of Chaos and War, Pandora is the girl-child of twins born to
Eris and Aegis after Their marriage, the first in Immortal history. Her twin
brother was stolen to another Realm by Lord Slith, of Chaos War fame and Their
father, Aegis gave chase, disappearing from the reach of the Gods of Achaea.
Pandora has grown up, the golden apple of Her Mother's eye, left to run riot
around Achaea. She began to play tricks on the strange mortal creatures who, to
Her, seemed frail and amusing. The kind of child who pulls the legs off
craneflies to watch them flutter around uselessly, Pandora's capers escalated
abruptly, when She took a precious artefact belonging to Sarapis while He was
away and ran rife turning people into maggots, cripples and mutes. Her over-use
of this artefact caused it to fuse itself into Her hand, making it necessary
for Sarapis to amputate Her hand at the wrist on His return.

Angry, but also amused by Her activities, Sarapis branded Pandora with the
title 'Goddess of Mischief' so that mortals would know their peril when She was
near. Having been severely chastened by losing Her hand, and pulled into check
by Her Mother, Pandora is now the patron of all who are fun-loving, enjoy
toppling the structures of conformity and can orchestrate a good prank.

Her symbol is a silver hand, modeled on the one constructed for Her by
Phaestus.
