Basically the Greek god of partying! Well technically he was the god of Wine, and all the effects that came with it. Bastard son of Zeus and Persephone or possibly Semele (daughter of Cadmus).

Dionysus (Bacchus) is the son of Zeus and the god of the vine (wine).
There were Greek festivals in honor of Dionysus and a theater of Dionysus in Athens. The terms Apollo and Dionysus are juxtaposed as contrasts or conflicts – restraint and reason vs. license; this concept was later written about by the German philosopher Friedich Nietzsche (1844-1900).

God: Gave a shit about mankind, God of epiphany, and also known as the foreign God. Preferred to give his followers a chance to channel his "essence" by ways of "masking". God of excess. God of madness, God of Compassion. He's on the lookout for that "liberating" Lilith "gal"...
Been to hell and back, I can show you vouchers...

Dionysus is a ancient Greek god, the god of wine actually. He would bring hell to what some people would call partying. His effect would be either overdosing, madness, ecstasy, ect. The son of Zeus and Semele.

Also known as: The Liberator, Bacchus(The Roman name he adopted.), and the God Of Wine.
"That Latin test was hard today, huh?"

"Yeah, the question about Dionysus was probably the hardest one there."
