The Winds

The winds were controlled by the god Aeolus. He lived with his family on the island of Aeolia, where he kept the winds captive until the gods decided to release them, or someone could convince Aeolus to free them.

They were thought to be the sons of Eos and Astrtaeus (the dawn and the stars).
