Hermes is the son of the ruler of Olympus Zeus and the nymph Maya.

Roman mythology renamed Hermes Mercury and endowed him with a number of new traits and obligations. From an eloquent and cunning patron of traders, travelers, heralds and thieves, he turned into a messenger of the gods, a guardian of crafts and arts, a connoisseur of magic and a guide to the afterlife of the souls of the dead. Hermes, the only one of the Olympic celestials, constantly wandered and almost never visited his sacred abode. He was traditionally depicted with a traveler’s staff and winged sandals.
