Also known in some Greek dialects as ''Algea'' – was the personified ''vice'' for the specific notion of pain – both in the physical and mental condition. Algos ''robbed'' one of certain abilities with regards to The Mind. This was commonly linked to The Greeks understanding of ''mental illness''. As Divine Beings inspired by The Gods (or Man himself later), Algos ''possessed'' those so afflicted to make them ''numb to The World''. Other bodily pains – while most often associated with The Grecian medical ideology of ''Humors'' controlling various points of ''balance'' within The Body, Algea was blamed for ''throwing'' them out of ''whack'' (as it were). Later (socially) the feelings of ''Sorrow'' and ''Grief'' was assigned to Algea.
