Aithra is the goddess of healing and safety; daughter of Hephaestus and Aphrodite.
Aithra is responsible for granting luck to others when they desire it, and healing the sick and wounded. Aithra rides her deer, Faith, across the long fields. Then, her love is Apollo; however, her father's side of the family did not agree with this pair.
Hera, mother of Hephaestus, was jealous of the family's success, and sent Dionysus, Aphrodite's enemy, to kill Aithra. She was not successful, and Apollo saved the day. The family was at peace now!
