Dionysus

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

In Greek mythology Dionysus is the God of Nature, and the God of the Vine and Wine (later personified by the Roman god Bacchus).  As Dionysus, he was also the God of Ecstasy and his cult was one of the mystery religions.  He produced the first wine from the vine, and spread the art of tending grapes, but he also had a dual side to his nature, on the one hand he could bring about joy and divine ecstasy and on the other hand brutal unthinking rage, both reflecting the nature of wine.
