A river nymph of Greece, Daphne was beloved of Apollo. However, their love was doomed the day Eros, in anger at Apollo, shot Daphne with an arrow that made her refuse all thoughts of love and passion. Angered that his daughter refused to marry anyone, let alone the sun god, Peneus transformed her into a laurel tree, which became sacred to Apollo.

Years later, as part of Apollo’s defection to the Host, the angels helped in restoring Daphne to her former self.

Daphne and Apollo lived happily for centuries, until Ohrmazda’s Coalition attacked the Host. Apollo refused to kill members of his own family who had been involved in the attack, and Raphael was sent to hunt the two lovers down. Daphne was brutally murdered by Raphael.
