Narcissus is a figure from Greek mythology who was so impossibly handsome that he fall in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Even the lovely nymph Echo could not manage to tempt him from his self-absorption. Narcissus' name lives on as the flower into which he was transformed and as a synonym for those obsessed with their own appearance.

Artemis Greek Mythology Dreamcast - Imogen Poots as Artemis Over the shadowy hills and windy peaks she draws her golden bow, rejoicing in the chase, and sends out grievous shafts. The tops of the high mountains tremble and the tangled wood echoes awesomely with the outcry of beasts… (x)

Helena ( Ἑλένη en griego antiguo), a veces conocida como Helena de Troya o Helena de Esparta, es un personaje de la mitología griega; su leyenda es aludida por casi todos los mitógrafos clásicos. Era considerada hija de Zeus y pretendida por muchos héroes debido a su gran belleza. Fue seducida o raptada por Paris, príncipe de Troya, lo que dio origen a la Guerra de Troya.

"Echo" in Greek mythology, a mountain nymph, or oread. Echo offended the goddess Hera by keeping her in conversation, thus preventing her from spying on one of Zeus’ amours. To punish Echo, Hera deprived her of speech, except for the ability to repeat the last words of another. Echo’s hopeless love for Narcissus, who fell in love with his own image, made her fade away until all that was left of her was her voice.
