Daphne was the wife of Timuron. She worked as a maid for Queen Karis and King Sisyphus in Corinth. When Timuron was mistakenly killed and taken to the Underworld on their wedding night, Daphne was overcome by grief. Sisyphus had been told by the Oracle of Delphi that Daphne could bear his child but Daphne turned down the King's advances. After talking with Timuron's ghost, she impulsively ran up a castle tower ready to throw herself off so she could be reunited with him. Hercules and Timuron dissuaded her from this and once the hero had taken Sisyphus to the Underworld, he arranged for Timuron to have 24 hours of life so he could properly say goodbye to Daphne.
