Dionysus is the Greek God of wine, theater, madness, and transgender people. He is the son of Zeus and Semele, and spent most of his time as a mortal teaching the people the art of winemaking.

History Edit

Early cults portrayed Dionysus as an androgynous person, followed by wild maenads, and satyrs. Quickly this cult grew, and he became a part of the Eleusinian Mysteries, along with Demeter and Persephone. He also was the chief deity in Orphism, a cult created by Orpheus.
