OriginEdit

Grecian myth tells the story of Echo, an Oread from Mount Kithairon, who was enlisted by Zeus as his latest attempt to seduce women without being caught by his wife, Hera. Echo was a gifted storyteller, and was told to distract Hera with never ending stories. Though initially pleased with Echo's stories, once Hera caught on to the nymphs' plot, the goddess angrily took away Echo's voice. In addition to this, Echo was cursed to only be able to say what was immediately spoken to her. When Echo eventually met and fell in love with Narcissus, his rejection of her made Echo so miserable that she wandered the world until nothing was left of her but her repeating voice - and this belt.

The Disney animated film “The Little Mermaid” used the Belt as an inspiration for the story.

EffectsEdit

Carrying the weight of Hera's curse, those who wear this belt suffer the same as Echo did until they fade away.
