Hermes: Greek god of the roads and everyone who uses them (merchants, travelers, thieves) and medicine. Son of Hera and Zeus, Hermes could talk almost right after he was born. He also stole sacred cattle from Apollo. To make up for it, he gave Apollo the lyre, which baby Hermes had invented. He uses his winged sandals to deliever messages between the gods. Hermes also carries a caduceus, a winged staff with two snakes interwinded. This is also the modern day symbol for medicine and also his symbol. He has no animal.
