Statue of Dionysus.

Dionysus is the god of wine, agriculture, theater, grapes, ritual madness, and ecstasy in Greek Mythology, and was worshipped by Maryann Forrester. He is said to be the son of Zeus.

As implied in "New World in My View", Dionysus is known by many names, each of which denotes different aspects of Dionysus. The alternate names that were shown for Dionysus and what they mean are as follows:

  • Bromios: being noisy or boisterous.
  • Dendrities: meaning he of the trees.
  • Eleutherios: meaning the liberator.
  • Enorches: a name that denotes Dionysus as a fertility god.
  • Bacchus: the name for Dionysus used by the Romans.

It is implied by the Queen Sophie-Anne Leclerq in "Frenzy" that gods, like Dionysus, are not inexistent, they just "never show up". Also, Daphne implies that Dionysus is in fact Satan himself (this would also tie in well with Maryann being identified as Lilith).
