Physical Appearance

Pothos had a broad and muscular build and grey eyes. He wore ancient Greek toga and slippers. As an erote, he had two large white wings on his back.

Powers and Abilities

  • Wings: As an erote, Pothos possesses large, angel-like wings, that enable him to fly. His wings, however, can be severed from his body, preventing him from being able to achieve flight. Despite this, he can specifically grow his wings back, regenerating them if given enough time. Pothos eludes to the fact that it is a lengthy process when he tells Hope, "you have no idea how long it took me to grow those."
  • Archery: As an erote, Pothos is an exceptional archer, able to hit targets with great accuracy from a distance.


  • Devil's Ivy: Pothos' only known weakness was a poisonous plant, so named Devil's Ivy or "Pothos". Landon consumed one such plant and tricked Pothos into consuming his heart, thereby poisoning and killing him.


Pothos has six other siblings, collectively known as the Erotes, described in lore. They are known as:

  • Eros: "was the ancient god of love and the inciter of natural procreation through the use of his bow and arrows, which, when shot, made mortals fall in love. He was the eldest of the Erotes born at the creation of the universe and was said to be able to be poisoned by being hit by his own arrows."
  • Anteros: "was the god of mutual love, or love returned. He was the avenger of unrequited love and was said to be able to be poisoned by a sheep's brain.
  • Hedylogos: "was the god of sweet-talking and flattery, and was said to be able to be poisoned by red wine."
  • Hermaphroditos: "was the hermaphroditic god. He was once a handsome winged youth, like the other Erotes, but his form was merged with that of the Nymphe Salmakis in answer to her prayers that the two should never be apart. Hermaphroditos was said to be able to poisoned by yew bark."
  • Himeros: "was the god of sexual desire who accompanied Aphrodite from the moment of her birth, and was said to be able to be poisoned by molten silver."
  • Hymenaios: was the god of the wedding ceremony and the wedding night and was said to be poisoned by hemlock."


Season Two


  • Pothos has no identifiable name meaning. It is, however, the name of a southeast Asian climbing plant known for its heart-shaped green leaves.[1]


  • Pothos states that Cupid is his "younger brother". Cupid, however, is of classical Roman mythology and Eros' Greek counterpart. Despite the switch in mythologies, the text that Kym found, and Landon referenced, states that Eros (or Cupid) is the eldest of the Erotes.
  • When Pothos died his body desiccated into a gray color and his veins thickened and protruded from his skin similar to how a vampire when it dies.
