Cassandra

Cassandra, in Greek mythology, was given the gift of correct prophecy of forthcoming mishaps and calamities. Apollo, a Greek deity, because of anger, made certain that no one would believe her. Thus, Cassandra has become known as the bearer of evil tidings that no one will believe.

E.L. Quarantelli, 1988
