Pegasus was a mythological horse from Greek mythology. It was supposedly a dazzling white horse with two great feathery wings sprouting from its back. It was said to be the son of Poseidon and Medusa.
After the hero Perseus slayed the gorgon Medusa, the blood that flowed from her neck spread over the ground and from it formed grassy fields and gushing rivers; beautiful trees and singing birds also came, and finally, the Pegasus. The greeks say that Pesasus flew from the isle afterwards towards the mountain Helicon, where he was watched over by the Muses. (An alternation of the story is similar as it states Pegasus was formed when the blood of Medusa met the sea foam, thus meaning that Medusa was the mother and Poseidon the father.)
