This story was inspired by Arthurian legends and other medieval European folklore, "Tithonus" (1859), a poem by the Victorian poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, as well as the ancient Greek myth about Eos, the goddess of the dawn who loved the mortal Prince Tithonus of Troy, plus my addiction to George R.
