Difference Between Faun and Satyr

Faun vs Satyr

Fauns and satyrs are only mythical creatures but the same. They are different in the way they are known. This mythological character is known in Greek as a satyr and a faun in Roman.

Both fauns and satyrs have a human torso, goat’s body and horns. Originally, a faun had human feet and a satyr had hooves like that of the goat.

Fauns are known to be the inhabitants of the forest. A satyr is portrayed as a follower of Bacchus who is considered the wine god. Unlike a faun, a satyr is known to have more sex drive.

For Romans, they had gods that had faun-like bodies named Bona Dea and Faunus. The Romans also believed that a faun motivated fear in human beings while travelling in the forest or more remote regions. A faun is also known to guide human beings.

Another difference between a faun and a satyr is in the horns. While the faun has a natural horn, a satyr has to earn the horns.

When compared to satyrs, fauns are considered to be handsome, innocent, and gentle. The satyrs, on the other hand, are clumsy and hideous having little eyes, a flat face, huge mouths, and a hairy body.

Satyrs are also known to be great gluttons when compared to fauns. Unlike fauns, satyrs are good drinkers and also mischievous. Fauns are foolish whereas satyrs have some knowledge.

Fauns can be seen in “The Chronicles of Narnia,” and an example of a satyr can be seen in “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.”
