Daughter of Agamemnon & Clytemnestra, paid the ultimate price for her Father (sacrificed to Artemis), and in the long run the king paid with his life for that. A beautiful innocent, loved by her parents and the gods. Brave.

A virgin, pure heart, loving and giving. Healing others with her touch, and honest to a fault. Can be counted on to go the extra mile and see you through the darkest moments, walking hand in hand and bearing witness. Somewhat of a martyr.

A unique Grecian princess, miraculously transformed into the goddess Hecate instead of death (at Taurus). Was intended to marry Achilles.
Clytemnestra and Iphigenia try in vain to persuade Agamemnon to change his mind, but he believes that he has no choice. As Achilles prepares to defend the young woman by force, she has a sudden change of heart, deciding that the heroic thing to do would be to let herself be sacrificed. She is led off to die, with her mother Clytemnestra so distraught as to presage Orestes' matricide.

Get the Iphigenia mug.
Daughter of Agamemnon who was to be sacrificed at Aulis due to her father's angering of the goddess Artemis. At the second the knife fell, Artemis whisked her away and placed a stag in her place. The goddess took her to the land of the Taurans, where she became a priestess. Many years later, she played a major part in the redemption of her brother, Orestes.
Iphigenia was lured to Aulis by the promise of a marriage to Achilles.
