Syrinx

Profile

Syrinx was not a lucky nymph. Unfortunately for her, she caught the attention of lusty god Pan, who chased her all around and tried to have his way with her. To escape him, Syrinx begged the naiads of the River Ladon to transform her into a bunch of reeds. Pan was so bummed that he cut some of the reeds and bound them together to make the first ever pan flute. What do you think: twisted or romantic?
