For the dutch amongst us...Fidessa is a character from the novel/story by Louis Couperus. She is a nymph who gives up her airy existance and her free and nude life in the forest for the love of a mortal man. To be accepted in his village she has to wear the chafing, heavy armour that everyone else wears. Of course they all die happily ever after in the end. But I feel it is such a beautiful tale. Everyone needs to read this classic.
