The Classic Circe
Circe by Wright Barker.
In ancient Greek mythology, the charater of Circe was a great Sorceress, who used her knowledge of herblore to transform men and women into animals and beasts. She was both capable of great hospitality- such as she showed to Odysseus and his men (eventually), and cruelty- evident in her transformation of the nymph Scylla into a hideous monster.
The following is a very brief outline of this classic character, one of the oldest characters in Western Literature, and by no means does her justice. It is mearly meant to be an introduction to the character Jack Kirby based his most high spirited Eternal (Sersi) on.
