- Forest Dweller (attribute)
- Friendly (behaviour)
A Satyr whose name means ‘Prick’ which reflects his rude behaviours. He had the body of a human from above and of a goat below. He has small horns on his heads and he lives with the forest people, the Silvani. The Satyrs play pranks and play with the Nymphs. They have a strong sexual behavior and like to get drunk often. At the end of Greek plays, a man would dress up as a Satyr and perform a comedy routine that made fun of people.
