Heeey, there, Zag, man, how's it going? Look, you have got to get here with the rest of us already, we've been saving you a spot! Let me see what I can do, make life a little sweeter for you in the meantime!
~ Dionysus

Dionysus is the Olympian God of wine and madness, and cousin to Zagreus. He offers boons to Zagreus revolving around his signature Status Curse, Hangover, slowing, and stunning enemies, as well as various drinking-themed Boons.

Dionysus offers strong damage over time abilities on nearly all his offensive boons. However, he can also give Zagreus strong utility abilities in the forms of stuns, slows, heals and health, damage reduction effects, and items.

His signature Status Curse is Hangover, which deals continuous damage to afflicted enemies every half second. Hangover can be stacked onto an enemy up to a base amount of 5 times, and stacks wear off one at a time after 4 seconds.

Affinity

If given Nectar, Dionysus will give you the Overflowing Cup.

Dionysus' affinity gauge is maxed out at 7 hearts.

Favor

Dionysus' favor requires forging bonds with at least 6 different characters, and gifting a minimum of 10 Ambrosia Small.png to any number of characters.

Codex entry

'...Perhaps I ought to feel a kinship with this easygoing son of Zeus, for it is said that he has some mortal blood in him, not just divinity. This may explain why he, among Olympians, is so well-loved by mortal-kind; because he loves them back, bringing to them more joy than suffering, for the most part. Being rather unlike the other gods in this regard, he nonetheless maintains a careful distance from the Underworld, generally severing his ties with all his mortal followers upon the moment of their deaths. Why confront the woes of the dead when you can live in eternal feast?'
