People from Aegina which was created out of ants when the island had been desolated because of a plague. King Aiacos was the sole survivor and asked Zeus to re-populate the island, which he did out of the ants. When Aiacos son Peleus fled the island after he and his brother Telamon had killed their halfbrother Phocos, the Myrmidons came with him. They settled in Thessaly, and were to be the soldiers of Peleus' son Achilles, feared by everyone.
