Aegina was a slave from Ister. She was caught by Hera's guards when she tried to steal food and was about to be sacrificed to the goddess when Hercules freed her. She then accompanied Hercules to Ister where he killed the She-Demon.

Background InformationEdit

In Greek mythology, Aegina was a daughter of the river god Asopus and the nymph Metope. She bore at least two children: Menoetius by Actor, and Aeacus by the god Zeus. When Zeus abducted Aegina, he took her to Oenone, an island close to Attica. Here, Aegina gave birth to Aeacus, who would later become king of Oenone; thenceforth, the island's name was Aegina.
