Eros

ErosCalled Cupid or Amor in Roman.

Aphrodite was jealous of Psyche. Eros was sent to potion her, but accidentally pricked her with one of his arrows and pricked himself too. Years later, Psyche could not find love and an oracle said she would find love at the top of a mountain. Her husband became Eros, but she didn't know who he was. Psyche's family visited her and her sisters grew jealous, so they told her Eros was a monster. They advised her to keep a lantern and knife with her in bed to see if he was a monster and kill him. She saw him and realized he was Eros, but he flew away so Psyche prayed to Aphrodite who gave her tasks which included: sorting grains, snipping golden fleece, getting water from River Styx, and asking Persephone for a box of magic makeup. She opened the box and fell asleep. Eros couldn't stand it so Zeus made Psyche immortal and the two lovers married.
