Narcissus is a man whose beauty was so unmatched that he felt it was godlike in scope. Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in Echo’s pond. Entranced by his own beauty and enamoured with his own image, Narcissus lay on the bank of the river and wasted away staring down into the water. He died at the pond. All that was left in its place was a beautiful flower, white leaves with purple inside and now bears his name.
