Living in Ydrousa was like living in paradise, the land was fertile and full of forests precisely because of these water sources. Inhabitants of the island, along with people were the Nymphs. The Nymphs were mythical creatures, fairies blessed by the gods. When the Nymphs were expelled from their homelands, by a lion, the wrath of Goods hit the island. The result of the rage of Gods for the expulsion of Nymphs came with the extended drought that in combination with the sovereignty of Sirios in the uranium dome made the life in the island unbearable.
