The Boreads with Phineas.

The Boreads are the immortal sons of the god Boreas, one of the four seasonal wind gods. There are only two known Boreads; Calais and Zethes. They are the demigod brothers of Khione.


They were Argonauts alongside the original Jason. They are best known for the fact that they were born with wings and could fly. During the quest for the Golden Fleece, they defeated the Harpies that plagued the blind demigod Phineas.
