Circe, the daughter of the Titan Helios and a nymph, was born with no apparent powers. She grows up, mocked by her mother and siblings and ignored by her father. It’s not until she falls in love with a mortal fisherman and desires to make him a god that she discovers what she truly is – a witch. After committing a crime, her powers are revealed to the other gods. Concerned about the trouble she might cause, mighty Zeus banishes her to a solitary island. There, Circe comes into her powers and rather than fade into obscurity, she draws the eyes of gods and men alike.
