Backstory:

In Greek mythology, the Ceryneian Hind also called Cerynitis or the Golden Hind, was an enormous hind (female deer) that lived in Keryneia, Greece. It had golden antlers like a stag and hooves of bronze or brass, and it was said that it could outrun an arrow in flight. It was sacred to Artemis (the chaste goddess of the hunt, animals, and unmarried women). The capture of the hind was the third labour of Heracles.
