Party Animals

Dionysus is definitely the ringleader of this group. You barely even see these guys in daytime, because they're out all night doing their thing. When they even bother showing up to school, they usually just skip class. You're much more likely to find them burning their report cards in the bathroom than sitting in class.


This Hindu god has a ton of different aspects and incarnations, and he's still worshiped by millions of people. Like our buddy Dionysus, he's associated with hedonism, the pursuit of pleasure – and what's a good party without a little hedonism? Also true to his Greek friend, Shiva has big groups of women followers who party all night until they reached a state of ecstasy. But just like the Bacchic rituals, these gatherings aren't just for recreation; they are sacred celebrations. Sometimes Shiva hold back, but he also knows how to party with the best of 'em.
