G is a person who upsets the status quo by posing upsetting or novel questions, or just being an irritant. In his defense while on trial for his life, S pointed out the high cost to society of silencing individuals who were irritating- “If you kill a man like me, you will injure yourselves more than you will injure me,” because his role was that of G, “to sting people and whip them into a fury, all in the service of truth.”

G also appears in Greek mythology as a tormentor to I. Z lusts after I and turns her into a white heifer to hide her from his jealous wife. She is not fooled, and demands her as a gift from Z. She then sends K, the 100-eyed monster to guard her. H, on Z’s orders, kills K. When she finds out that K has been killed, causing I to become loose, she sends the G to torment and sting I, forcing her to wander far away from home.

The G also plays a role in the myth of how B loses P while riding it to the top of Mt. Olympus. Z is enraged by the human’s attempt to ascend to the home of the gods. He sends G to sting P, who is startled and he rears backward. B loses his grip and falls back to Earth. His life is spared, but he becomes blind and wanders the earth until he dies, being hated by both men and gods. He never finds P again.

Erm…G,S,I,Z,K,B and P please.
