We have the additional problem that the entire body of myths are not self-consistent. Mind you, the story you're focusing on is the very story that spawned this thread, so it's hardly unfair to point to as evidence, but while this story is going to imply she's drop-dead hawt, another story is going to imply that lots of human maids are hotter, and we're left with a conundrum in a game that we expect to be self-consistent, when using source material that is not.
