Actaeon
Real Name:
Search for 'Actaeon' on Amazon

Bio:
Actaeon witnessed the Roman goddess Diana while bathing, so she transformed him into a deer and hunted him down. The Amazons of Earth-2 celebrate this act as "Diana Day," which is similar to Christmas in that it involves Diana arriving in a chariot to provide gifts to her followers. Diana is represented by an Amazon in costume, and those who try unsuccessfully to unmask her are put into deer costumes, hunted down, then ritually mock-cooked and mock-eaten.

Notes:
The character is not identified by name in the issue, but although the element of being devoured by his own hounds is omitted, anyone familiar with the story from classical mythology would be able to identify him.
