Dionysus was the god of wine from Greek myths and the last Olympian to earn a place on Mount Olympus. His story starts with him being born from Zeus's thigh...and then somehow gets stranger. He does make a lot of really fun, dangerously intense fans among the humans, though.
The creature is the Tenjoname! He's a helpful ghost who will clean your ceilings with his filthy tongue!
