Psyche was the most beautiful of her three sisters, but no man was courageous enough to ask her to marry him. They just watched her from afar because they were too intimidated by her.
The Oracle of Delphi told her father that she must go to the top of a mountain and a winged serpent would take her as his wife. The winds of Zephyr then took her to Eros' palace.
She was taken to the palace of Eros, but she didn't know it was him by only only being allowed to see him at night. One night while they were in bed she saw him by candle light and spilled candle way on him.
