Democritus

Democritus, probably the greatest of the Greek physical philosophers, was a native of Port Aenos on the Thracian Coast. He inherited a considerable property, which enabled him to travel widely in the East in search of information. In desert lands he settled for seven years, during which he studied the mathematical and physical systems of the ancient schools; the extent to which he was influenced by the Magi and the Eastern astrologists is a matter of pure conjecture, but what isn’t is his staunch belief in (and devout priesthood of) the Goddess Athena . He returned from his travels impoverished; why, is a matter of conjecture. One story goes that he spent much of his accrued wealth fighting agents of the dark god Set; Another tradition states that he was regarded as insane by the Abderitans, and that Hippocrates was summoned to cure him of seeing ‘enemies where there were none.’ Regardless, he found himself back in Thrace a shell of his former self, until an agent of Hephaestus confirmed his worst fears – that the Gods were soon to war with one another, and the forces of Good had to unite if humanity were to survive.
