North Wind

Godly personification of the wind blowing from the north. The North Wind was father of two of the Argonauts, whose ability to fly enabled them to chase the Harpies away from the table of King Phineus. These bird-women had been ruining his meals, and Phineus was so grateful for their departure that he gave the Argonauts essential advice about surviving the Clashing Rocks.
