Fraud3-2

Myrrha is one of the damned which Dante must punish or absolve for "The Damned" achievement/trophy. She is encountered in the circle of Fraud.

Description Edit

Daughter of the King of Assyria, Myrrha lies in the second deepest Circle, Fraud, with only her insanity left. She is a disgusting mockery of one who disguises herself to seduce her own father.

Trivia Edit

  • In The Inferno, Dante and Virgil behold the shade of Myrhha in the final ditch of the Malebolge, damned for her act of falsifying.
  • In Greek mythology, Myrrha, the daughter of King Cinryas, was cursed by the goddess Aphrodite into lusting for her father, after Myrrha's mother boasted that Myrrha's beauty was a match for Aphrodite's. Myrrha had initially contemplated suicide as an alternate for her taboo feelings, but her sympathetic nurse counseled her into tricking Cinryas, disguising the girl as a prostitute. Myrrha afterwards became pregnant. When Cinryas learned the truth, in a fit of rage he tried to kill Myrrha, but Aphrodite saved her at the last minute by changing her into a myrrh tree. The tree later split open to birth Myrrha's son, Adonis.
