Synopsis

Orpheus, the bard of Greek myth, is here revealed as the son of Oneiros (Sandman/Morpheus/Dream) and the muse Calliope. On the day of his wedding to Eurydice, his bride tragically dies from a snakebite. Overcome with grief, Orpheus petitions Oneiros' help to revive Eurydice, but ends up disavowing his father when he is unwilling to help. Uncle Olethros (Destruction) and aunt Teleute (Death) prove more cooperative, though, and send Orpheus to plead his case before Hades, the ruler of the Greek underworld. After being granted his wish of getting Eurydice back, Orpheus foolishly questions the word of Hades, and Eurydice is lost forever to him. The only way for Orpheus to return from Hades was if Death agreed never to take him, so when the grieving Orpheus is later torn apart by the Bacchante, the mad worshippers of Dionysus, his head survives. Condemned to eternal life as a severed head, Orpheus is cared for by priests who have been visited by Oneiros in their dreams.
