WHO is “Circe” exactly?
In Greek mythology, Circe, pronounced (/ˈsɜrsiː/) is a goddess of magic. By most accounts, Circe was the daughter of Helios, the god of the Sun. Circe was renowned for her vast knowledge of potions and herbs. Through the use of magical potions and a wand or a staff, she transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals. Some say she was exiled to the solitary island of Aeaeaby her subjects and her father for ending the life of her husband, the prince of Colchis. Later traditions tell of her leaving or even destroying the island and moving to Italy, where she was identified with Cape Circeo.
