Redheads are said to be children of the moon, thwarted by the sun and addicted to sex and sugar. Redheads with green eyes are said to be favorite cohorts of the devil, and were often targets of witch hunts. Redheaded women are associated with seduction and the temptation of pure men, and evils such as Jezebel, the women of the island Lesbos, and Elizabeth Bathory are depicted as women with uncontrollable tempers and red hair.
