Cassandra: As a child she and her twin brother Helenus were given the gift of prophecy when two snakes came upon the babes one night and licked their ears clean. When morning came the snakes slithered into sacred laurels, a symbol of the god Apollo. As a young woman she rejected the affections of the god and he in turn cursed her: while she still had the gift of prophecy no one would believe her and she would be spurned and thought of as mad...

Modern day Greek myths (I don't agree with the textbook one. Yeah it's a scam, but doing that actually hurts genuine scholars trying to publish their research, not hurt an industry taking advantage of things. The same thing happens with music. It's a vicious cycle that nobody wins except the ones doing the exploiting)

Cassandra was the most beautiful of Priam’s daughters,  the god Apollo fell in love with her. Apollo promised Cassandra the gift of prophecy if she would agree to give herself to him. Cassandra accepted Apollo’s gift but then refused his advances. Apollo was furious, but he could not take back the powers he had given her. Instead he cursed her, proclaiming that although she would be able to tell the future accurately, no one would believe her.
