CLXVII: Daughter of Gods Meets Phoenician Hero, the Story of Cadmus & Harmonia (Part 1)

Revisiting Liv's favourite myth in much more detail... What happens when a hero marries a goddess? The story of Cadmus and Harmonia, the mysterious and yet deeply important couple and the origins of their family's curse.

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
