Persephone - The ancient Greek Goddess of Springtime.
Legend has it that she was so beautiful that the God of the underworld fell in love with her and spirited her down to Hades.
She is a somewhat melancholy Goddess, yearning to be free of the underworld, but doomed to spend half the year there.
When she does escape, the world comes alive again.
In Greece, all the spring flowers are white, so she is mostly white except for her hair. Being the daughter of Zeus, she has long dark hair and brown eyes.
