feathersIris has always been a goddess of the rainbow and a courier for the Olympian gods ā€“ and since Hermies went incommunicado her role as messenger has become even more important. She also serves as a cup bearer for the leader of the pantheon (currently Athena) and is known to also run messages for her parents Thaumas and Elektra (spirits of the sea and clouds respectively).
