Auriel (Uriel) is most well known for his role as Regent of the Sun in the book of Revelation where he calls forth the birds of the air to feast upon the fallen. As one of the most faithful and dedicated members of the host, Uriel was also placed in charge of Tartarus (another name for Hades), warned Noah of the impending flood (although Raphael is credited with teaching the building of the ark), and attacked Moses for failing to circumcise his son. Accepted as an archangel by the christian church for many centuries, he was finally removed from the records in 745 CE as the church became increasingly concerned with the prominence the public was placing upon angels. His position was taken by Anael (The Glory of God). He is still honored, however, in some wiccan traditions.
God of wine, fertility, ecstasy, and theater. Dionysus is the life and soul of the party. He invented wine and spread the art of tending grapes. He has a dual nature. On the one hand bringing joy and devine ecstasy. On the other brutal, unthinking, rage. Thus, reflecting both sides of wines nature.
In the myth of Bacchus (the Roman incarnation of Dionysus), Bacchus fell
asleep on the beach, and was kidnapped by pirate sailors, who thought
someone so well-dressed must be a prince. Bacchus woke up and told them
who he was. The sailors didnt believe him. Bacchus then revealed
himself in all his glory: he grew to such a large size, he filled the
ship, with vines entwining the sails. The sailors panicked and jumped into
the sea. Bacchus felt sorry for them, and turned them into dolphins. The
ancient Greeks thought this explained why dolphins are so intelligent.
