Hermes has a variety of ways to help the gods and goddesses in Greek Mythology. One hero in particular he was extremely helpful to was Perseus. Perseus need a way to defeat the monster Medusa, who was killing everyone in her way and turned them to stone.

“Hermes was known for his helpfulness to mankind, both in his capacity as immortal herald and on his own initiative” (Skidmore).
This shows that Hermes is a helpful and generous god because he loaned his things out to help other gods, goddesses and hero’s out to do what they need to do. Without Hermes being in the story of Greek Mythology, the gods, goddesses, and heroes would not be in the story because Hermes gave his things to them to protect themselves.
In the end, Hermes was a great help to Perseus because if Hermes did not give Perseus the tools he needed to defeat Medusa, and Perseus would be dead. His impact can still be used today by the symbol of running and UPS.
