Pan Bio

Hello, my name is Pan. I am the god of sheperds, flocks, mountain wilds, hunting, and rustic music. Also, I am also the companion of the nymphs. I am connected to fertility and springtime, and some even consider me to be the god of theatrical criticism. My name comes from the Greek word paein which means 'to pasture.' I am depicted with the horns, legs, and tail of a goat. My father is Hermes. While most gods live on Mount Olympus, I live in the forest.
I am quite musical, in fact the panpipes are named after me! The music I play is considered to be magical, and when people hear it, it bring many emotions upon them, whether good or bad. In the Battle of Marathon, my music caused the enemies to panic.


  1. Pan seems much more down to Earth than the rest of the Greek gods- no pun intended. The tone that you used in your blog post did an excellent job at portraying Pan's nature-loving, carefree persona. Keep up the good work!
