Beings - Giants

Orion was the son of the Titan Gaia, and Poseidon, so he had great hunting skills and vast knowledge, but he was a small giant. He was the giant opponent of the twin archers, Artemis and Apollo, but he deviated from his role by becoming friends with the gods and the faithful and most valued hunter of Artemis. After being killed by a scorpion he was placed as a constellation in the sky, the well-known constellation of Orion which is close to the constellation of his friend Sirius known as the star Sirius.

In another version it is said that Orion is a legacy of Apollo, that is, the son (or grandson and the like, it is not known or certain) of a son of the god of the sun and beauty, which is one of the reasons for having generated jealousy in the god , for being gifted with his mastery with the bow and arrow and a beauty that had captivated the goddess of the hunt and the moon, Artemis.

Hélio = Legend has it that Orion was a giant hunter, he loved Artemis, whom he almost married. Artemis's brother Apollo, in turn, was annoyed by such an approach between the two, as his sister had sworn to be a virgin forever. Then he had warned Artemis.

Flawless in her aim, she hit her beloved, who was on the run from a scorpion that Gaia had sent to kill him. Orion's already dying body was taken to Poseidon. Realizing the mistake he had committed, Artemis, in the midst of tears, asked Zeus to place Orion and the scorpion among the stars: the giant dressed in a belt, a lion skin, armed with a sword and his club, accompanied by Sirius , his dog, fleeing from his enemy scorpion. (Sirius or Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and is found in the constellation Big Dog, near the constellation of Orion or Orion).

Another version is that Orion tried to violate the goddess Artemis. In order to punish him, Artemis sent a gigantic scorpion to bite his heel, killing him. For the service rendered to the goddess, the scorpion was transformed into a constellation, symbolizing Artemis' anger at being threatened with rape or, according to some versions, for having his affective and sexual offer rejected.

There is yet another version in which Orion was just a hunter, descended from the gods, but still a normal man. In this version, he falls in love with Artemis, who corresponds to love, but Apollo jealously puts a giant scorpion to chase and kill the boy. On the beach with his sister, he challenges her to hit a black spot in the ocean saying that she is not as good as he is. Artemis proudly says that being even better and drawing his bow and arrow prepares the shot, which hits the target. The tide turns red and Orion's dying body was brought into the surf, where the goddess took him in her arms, weeping copiously and asking for forgiveness. It was then that she pleaded with her father, Zeus, to raise Orion to the stars (some versions, she herself turns him into a constellation) making the boy the constellation of Orion. He swore to him his love and that from then on he would never fall in love again, turning his back on male company (in the sense of love). It was also from this day on that his aversion to man was born, driven by his hatred for Apollo, because he showed that man can be a great deceiver, a liar, especially that.

In another version, Apollo in a fit of jealousy as the two approached, drove the hunter to madness, awakening an extreme thirst for blood, until he was killed by a giant scorpion. Sadly, Artemis turned his beloved hunter into a constellation, to honor his memory.
