Satrisci -Plural

A creature of Greek myth that has the body of a human from above and of a goat below. They have small horns on their heads and they live with the forest people, the Silvani. They 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. From this we gain the word ‘satire’. Eventually over time the Satyr became the form of the Devil in Christianity.
