    The Hybrid: "The Husband of the Eye, the Eye of the Cow..."
    Hera was also known as "Bopis" which means "cow-eyed", which was the key for Baltar to unlock the nonsensical ramblings of the Hybrid. It's interesting how the writers choose which symbols and attributes of each god and goddess they commandeer for the show. The hybrid could easily have said, "The brother of the crow, in a peacock-drawn wagon..." Ok, obviously not as articulate, but Hera is also generally linked to the crow, and was often depicted riding a chariot, driven by peacocks.

    She was also known for her jealous tantrums, and spiteful nature. Will the writers of the series tap into this aspect of Hera as she ages. Will the new generation of God's children be driven by vengeance? Possibly to wipe out both Cylon and Man?
