Flying gracefully through the heavens, she adores the scenery of the blue sky, the white clouds, and the bright sun. Even the most beautiful of gods cannot match the stunning view of nature in all its glory. For Pallas, just being able to appreciate this spectacle is more than enough.
In Greek mythology, Pallas was the daughter of Triton. Acting as a foster parent to Zeus’s daughter Athena, Triton raised her alongside his own daughter. During a friendly fight between the two goddesses, Athena was protected from harm by Zeus but mortally wounded Pallas. Out of sadness and regret, she created the palladium, a statue in the likeness of Pallas.
