Mercury, known as Hermes to the Greeks, is the god of financial gain, commerce, eloquence, messages, communication (including divination), travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves; he also serves as the guide of souls to the underworld.
Hermes was known for wearing wing-tipped shoes so that he might accompany the other gods on all of their official business errands. Because of this, Hermes is known for being very savvy and in-the-know.
