Cymochʹles

.

A man of prodigious might, brother of Pyrochʹlēs, son of Malice (Acraʹtēs) and Despite, and husband of Acraʹsia, the enchantress. He sets out to encounter Sir Guyon, but is ferried over the idle lake by Wantonness (Phæʹdria), and forgets himself; he is slain by King Arthur (canto viii.). The word means, “one who seeks glory in troubles.” (Spenser: Faërie Queene, ii. 5.)
