Psyche – a beautiful girl, whom Eros
fell in love with and married. He had to hide her from his mother Aphrodite,
who was jealous of and vindictive to beautiful women. Jealousy, vindictiveness,
and fear of people and gods brought on poor Psyche a lot of mishaps. The
end of the story, however, is happy – Zeus
granted Eros his permission to marry the mortal Psyche, and Psyche was
reconciled with Aphrodite.
