Pegasus is a winged-horse-like mythological beast. Its origins can be traced to Greek mythology. Originally the term referred to a specific single winged-horse-like being but now any winged-horse is called a "pegasus." Pegasus' brother Chrysaor is sometimes depicted as a young man, but is also depicted as a winged boar or a winged bear. Pegasus was born from the blood of the Goddess Medusa and Chrysaor was born from her neck.
