Liriope in Echo and Narcissus

Liriope is Narcissus' mother. Her only part the entire story is to ask Tiresias if her son will live a long life. She doesn't appear in any other myths that we know of either. She is one of those mysterious characters who exist only as plot-movers. The literary world is full of such lost souls. Too bad, so sad, moving on.
