Gods, assemble!

Fun fact: This is the third time I have renamed the little Muse. Even though character, motivation and appearance have always been clear to me, my lack of research caused a change of names. First it was Kalliope, the muse of epic poetry, but my muse had to be associated with music. So I switched it to Polyhymnia (muse of hymns, mimes and agriculture) for a time but a closer look showed that in canon she is a very serious person which doesn´t fit and I don´t want to go against canon more than necessary. So now it´s Terpsichore, muse of dance and the dramatic choir, whose attribute is a lyra and who´s associated with Pan. It´s just perfect, for reasons I am going to elaborate some other time when we see her again.
