MusesThe Greek goddesses who presided
over the arts and sciences. Traditionally there are nine muses but
in Elysium Gates there are eleven, one presides over each subject area and
coordinates the activities and volunteers of that area. Their Leader is
Lady Kythera Ann.
OraclesIn its modern usage, the word
"oracle" is used to describe either a prophet inspired by spiritual
forces, or to describe a particular prophesy. In ancient Greece, the
oracle was a place where these divinely-inspired prophesies of the future
were passed down to mortals. At Elysium Gates "oracles" is the term
used for the volunteer of a subject area that helps answer member
questions and helps plan member activities. Each Oracle is
associated with a Greek god/goddess and bears their name (such as Oracle
PandoriansIn Greek mythology, Pandora was
the first woman on earth. The gods endowed her with many talents; hence
her name: Pandora, "all-gifted". For Elysium Gates Pandora was the original staff
technical goddess (Apaulo is now our chief tech guru) and the Pandorians are volunteers that help members with
all technical problems.
Torch BearersTorch bearers throughout
history are way showers. Greece made famous their torch bearers
through the Olympics. Elysium Gates torch bearers continue the
tradition by helping to orientate new members to all the ins and outs of
Elysium Gates. Contact them with your questions. They love to
help new people and make them feel a vital part of the community.
Their leader is the Goddess Pandia.
