Narcissus is a character in Hercules and the 1998 TV series. He is considered as a God. However, in actual Greek mythology, Narcissus was a man who was very handsome. Due to not loving a nymph (nature spirit) called Echo, Narcissus was made to look at a reflection of himself, and fall in love with himself. He could not look away, so eventually he died.
The Olympian Gods took pity on him and turned Narcissus into a flower known as the Narcissus and god of the vanity and son of Cephissus the river god and Liriope naiad nymph. In the 1997 film, he is portrayed as an Olympian god with white hair and purple skin.
