The Anemoi are Greek wind spirits. Brothers, they may manifest as actual winds or as winged men. Alternatively, they are horses kept in Aeolus’ stables. Most mythic sources describe Eos and Astraeus as their parents. (Some sources consider Astraeus to be another name for Aeolus.) The Anemoi are divided into two groups.
• Boreas: North Wind
• Eurus: East Wind
• Notus: South Wind
• Zephyr: West Wind
• Apeliotes: Southeast Wind
• Kaikias: Northeast Wind
• Livos (Lips): Southwest wind
• Skiron (Skeiron): Northwest Wind
