Eurydice is a deceased oak nymph and the former wife of the musician Orpheus. Despite having some qualities of other gods and immortals, she died from a snake bite and was ferried to Underworld. A grieving Orpheus ventured to the Underworld to plea for her return. He charmed Lord Hades with his music and was given leave to bring Eurydice with him back to the surface, on the condition that he not look back at her until he left the Underworld. Ultimately he succumbed to his own insecurities, and Eurydice was forced to remain in the land of the dead.

Eurydice now resides in her own private corner of Asphodel, where she spends eternity singing and cooking with the help of the river Phlegethon's heat. Her former husband still seems to be a bit of a sore subject for her. The two are apparently kept apart by an official separation order issued from Hades' desk, likely as a condition of the deal that allowed Orpheus to attempt to rescue her.

If interacted with, she will offer Zagreus a selection of Underworld delicacies designed to boost his Boons.

If given Ambrosia, Eurydice will give you the Evergreen Acorn.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...Mortality and immortality are closer than most gods care to believe. There are such minor gods as can be killed. So it is with nymphs, and all the naiads and the dryads and the like, the spirits of the woods, and seas, and skies; in life, they captivate our mortal senses and imagination, but in death, we all are more alike. The nymph Eurydice, born of the oak itself, must know this better than her kind. She took a suitor who, by most accounts, was but a common mortal; talented beyond compare, but not a god. Yet, all the love they shared could not keep death from tearing them apart. She bears a special mention here for having almost fled the Underworld, once. Such was the full-hearted devotion of her mate, that he did venture all the way into this realm, in search of her, and treated with the Master for her soul. They say the Master almost let her go.'
