Satyr have the upper half of a man and the lower half of a goat, with either a goat or horse's tail. They are lustful woodland beings with a love of wine, women, and song. Satyrs are ready for every physical pleasure and enjoy the music of pipes, cymbals, castanets, bagpipes, and often dance with the nymphs.
Fauns are nearly identical and are sometimes used interchangeably with satyrs. They may help or hinder humans at whim and were said to inspired fear in men traveling in lonely, remote, or wild places. The fauns were rather foolish while the satyrs were knowledgeable and more woman-loving.
