Pan is the god of shepherds of herds and flocks, and the god of beehives. Pan was born with the horns, beard, tail, and legs of a goat. There are several theories surrounding Pan's parents. The most likely of which is that he was fathered by Zeus on Hybris.

There are some important gods that do not reside on Olympus. Pan is among their number. He was content, living in the Arcadian forests, taking long naps and seducing nymphs left and right. If anyone disturbed him during his naps, he would take revenge by giving sudden shouts from a nearby grotto, making their hair bristle and alerting nearby animals (which would, perhaps, ruin the victim's hunt).

He is the only Greek god who has ever died. The news came to Thamus, a sailor. He was on a ship bound for Italy when he heard a godly voice tell him: "Thamus, are you there? When you reach Palodes, take care to proclaim that the great god Pan is dead!" He obeyed, of course. A preist at Delphi, Plutarch, believed that Pan had died and published that news. Who knows if it's true, since in the second century a.d., at least a century after this anouncement, Pan's alters and shrines were still attended.
