God of the west wind, in Greek legend, Zephyros, like his three brothers, Boreas, Notos and Euros, was the son of Eos and Astraeos. The god of the west wind vied with hisbrother Boreas for the love of Chloris, who chose Zephyros, and remained his faithfulwife from then on. Zephyros had a maligant side to his character also though:therewas a youth, called Hyakinthos, whom both Zephyros and Apollo loved, and the wind-god, in frustration at the success Apollo was having with the boy, blew back the discus Apollo had thrown, into the face of Hyakinthos, killing him.
