OOOH, thank you for that. When I researched them and discovered they'd been created by Zeus to protect Dionysus, (Bacchus) I thought about these Corybantes being descendents of the original ones. You mentioning that they're involved in orgies kinda suits my story, because my male MC is all for pleasures of the flesh.

I just don't want a house-elf. I don't want the docile servant. The Corybante will be 'freer' as it were. But thank you so much for talking to your friend for me. Kuri, too, is of Italian descent and the Roman/Greek mythologies are so intertwined that I think her suggestion will work.

You Claws do seem to love your House elves, don't you?
