Quote: Daughter of the Trojan king Priam and Queen Hecuba. Cassandra was very beautiful, but considered quite unbalanced. As a child, she was left over night in a temple of Apollo together with her brother Helenus. In the morning, their parents found the children entwined with snakes. The serpents were flicking their tongues into the children's ears, and so they were given the gift of prophecy.
When Paris returned to king Priam's court to regain his recognition as his son, it was Cassandra who declared him her brother. Even so, Priam had her locked in a chamber since she was quite mad.
Apollo fell in love with Cassandra when she was a grown woman, and once again spent a night in his temple. When she refused him, he cursed her, and from then on no one was to believe her prophecies. Also, anyone betrothed to her died, a fate Othryoneus, Coroebus and Eurypylus were to share.
