This one is short and sweet. (If you consider the best teacher you’ll ever meet dying story sweet.)
Now if you guys have read Percy Jackson books, you’ll be quite familiar with the legendary Chiron.
Chiron was a centaur (half human, half horse) who was the son of the Titan Kronos (the dude who ate his children) and another nymph who’s name you don’t have to remember (it was Philyra). He was the tutor of many famous Greek Heroes whose names you’d have properly have heard of, namely, Jason, Hercules, Theseus, and so on.
When Hercules was on a mission to destroy the monster Hydra, Chiron had accompanied him, and due to an unfortunate turn of events, Chiron accidentally was impaled by Hercules’s arrow which was poisoned by Hydra’a blood.
Ironically, Chiron, master of the healing arts could not heal himself and died.
Zeus, being his half brother, placed the constellation Centaurus to honor Chiron’s memory.
The reason I’m telling you all this story is because Chiron is a sweetheart and he deserves the world.
