The god of
the orphicists, followers of a mystery cult. The name is Thracian, and the
cult believed this Dionysus was the son of Zeus, in the shape of a snake,
Zeus had decided that his son would rule the world, which his wife Hera strongly opposed to. She made the Titans kill and eat the child, but they were killed by Zeus lightning and turned to ash.
Because the Titans hadn't eaten the child's heart yet Zeus gave it to Semele, who gave birth to a new Dionysus. Out of the ashes of the Titans the human kind was born, and so every human has both a divine and an evil nature.
