We know he looked, we know he lost her. He was a musician, a lover, a god, a singer. But who was she? Who was the woman who inspired such passion, such loyalty. Was she beautiful, was she a seer, a priestess. What were her gifts? What is the story of her loss? When her journey to the underworld begins, what is she thinking? When Orpheus convinces Hades, is she happy? Does she in fact even want to return to the land of the living? Maybe she likes it better in hell. Maybe its cooler, maybe she can think better. Maybe her psyche feels more at home in the shadows.
