Telesphoros is a mysterious assistant to Asclepios, the healer. He is the size of a small boy and wears a mantle, or hood, which obscures his face. He teaches the art of bringing healing forces from distant, eternal sources; and then establishing these energies inside the body of the patient. Telesphoros bears a strange resemblance to Kenny, a character in the cult animated series 'South Park'. Kenny is always getting killed, and then coming back alive again. This is a phenomenon that the skills of ancient Telesphoros can produce!
