The Silenus is one of a race of creatures with origins in Greek and Roman mythology, legend and folklore.
The original Silenus resembled a folkloric human of the forest with the ears of a horse and sometimes also the body hair, Genitalia, tail and legs of a horse.
Fat, old male spirits. There is no such thing as a young or female Silenus.
