Pegasus is from Greek Mythology.  Pegasus was known as the winged horse that resulted from the mating of his parents, Medusa and Poseidon.  Pegasus was trained by Bellerophon, who rode Pegasus to slay the monster Chimaera.  Pegasus made his journey to Mount Olympus where he spent his days carrying lighting bolts for Zeus. Zeus transformed him into the constellation Pegasus.  The symbolism of Pegasus changes throughout history from wisdom and fame to esoteric energy.
