Artemis has a deep caring for maidens, especially for maidens whom she presides over. Unlike her twin, she is less "easy-going" and more focused with a much greater understanding of mortals than most of the other Olympians. Although she is reasonable, Artemis holds a general dislike of men although she does acknowledge and respect those who prove themselves to her. Artemis is shown to be an independent goddess who prefers the company of her hunters to even that of other gods. She loves hunting and is associated with the moon. Artemis is among the more sympathetic Olympians and weighs individuals by their actions and choices as opposed to their potential. However, there is a darker side to Artemis. When angered, she can be ruthless and vengeful. Until she knows someone well or feels that they are a good person, she can seem cold and aloof.

||•| History |•||
Artemis was the first born child of Zeus and Leto. Her mother was forbidden by a jealous Hera, to give birth anywhere on earth or anywhere the sun shines, but the floating island of Delos was an exception. Immediately after her birth, Artemis helped her mother deliver Apollo.

When she was three years old, Artemis asked her father to grant her a wish as he had for her brother. She desired (among other things) a silver bow to her brother's gold and the choice to remain a maiden for all eternity. She held a passion for hunting and wanted to roam the wilderness forever. As Artemis was Zeus' favorite daughter and he held a special pride for her, Zeus granted her wish. He also took a vow on the River Styx that he would never force her to marry or have children.

Currently, she is staying at camp. She is hidden though, claiming to be just a hunter of Artemis. She does not wish to have too much attention drawn to her, and really doesn't have much.

Kendra G. ツ ~There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for~ (12kendrag) Godly Name: Demeter

First Name (Human): Maria
Middle Name (Human): Wheatne
Last Name (Human): Stalk

Parent(s) (Godly):
Mother- Rhea
Father- Cronus

Other Family (Immortal):
Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hera, and Hestia are her siblings. Persephone is Demeter and Zeus's daughter. Demeter bore two children by Poseidon (a daughter and a horse). The rest of the Olympian gods are also her family such as nieces, nephews etc.

Age (Human): 25
Birthday (Human): July 17th
Birthplace (Human): California

Personality: To most of Demeter's family Demeter doesn't really care about anything- other than eating stuff with wheat. When she shows up to the people or gods who worship her, she is generous- if they are. When walking among mortals, she likes to stand out and have attention. She also likes to 'educate' everyone about wheat.

History(Godly): One of the oldest Greek gods, Demeter (Roman name: Ceres) guaranteed the fertility of the earth and protected farming and vegetation. This close connection with the earth was inherited from her mother Rhea, and doubtless she was a reincarnation of local mother-Earth goddesses, commonly worshiped in rural communities. Daughter of Kronos and Rhea, sister of Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hera, and Hestia, Demeter was the mother of Persephone and Iacchus (both with Zeus) and Pluto, the god of wealth (with Iasion, who was subsequently killed by a thunderbolt from a jealous Zeus). She also adopted Triptolemus, the Eleusinian prince, who gave the human race the gifts of the plough and knowledge of agriculture. Demeter was also pursued by Poseidon and to escape his attentions, she changed into a mare; however, Poseidon too changed into a horse and their resulting offspring was Arion, the winged horse ridden by Hercules. Homer in The Iliad describes the goddess as ‘golden-haired’, and Hesiod in his Theogony and Works & Days, describes her as ‘bounteous Demeter’, ‘well-garlanded’, ‘hallowed’, and ‘reverend’. Demeter and Persephone were the subject of a major cult in the ancient Greek world.
Demeter and Persephone (also known as Kore in Greek and Proserpina by the Romans) were the subject of a major cult in the ancient Greek world. According to mythology, Hades, god of the underworld, fell in love with Persephone as soon as he saw her and carried her off in his chariot to live with him in Hades. In some accounts Zeus had given his consent to the abduction, the location of the crime being traditionally placed in either Sicily (famed for its fertility) or Asia. Demeter searched the earth for her lost daughter and though Helios (or Hermes) told her of her daughter’s fate, she, nevertheless, continued her wanderings until she finally arrived at Eleusis. It was here, disguised as an old woman, that the goddess cared for Demophon (or Triptolemus), the only son of Metaneira, the wife of Keleos, king of Eleusis. To reward the family for their kindness, Demeter set about making Demophon immortal by placing him on a fire every night. However, when Metaneira saw this she raised an alarm. In response, Demeter revealed her true identity and demanded a temple be built in her honour. This was the beginning of the celebrated sanctuary of Eleusis.

Regular appearance:




For mortals and people that worship her:



Clothes:
(view spoiler)

Appearance:
Eye color- Pale blue
Hair color- Blonde/Auburn
Height- 5'6
Weight- 130

Relationship Status (Godly): None currently.

Former Relationships (Godly):
She disliked Hades. Demeter had a daughter with her brother Zeus (eww lol) Her daughters name was Persephone and Demeter loved her very much. One day the earth opened up and Hades, god of the underworld reached up and kidnapped Persephone. Demeter wondered around often looking for her, with no luck until one day a god that sees all told her what happened. Demeter asked Zeus, a brother of Hades, to return Persephone. When Zeus refused, Demeter withheld the harvest from man until Zeus relented. He agreed to allow Persephone's return if she had not eaten while with Hades. However, since Persephone had eaten 6 pomegranate seeds in the underworld, Zeus determined that she would spend 6 months with her mother and 6 months with Hades. This is the mythic origin of the six months of spring and summer when Persephone walks the earth with her mother and the 6 months of fall and winter when Persephone must return to the underworld. The pomegranate is still for many a potent symbol of death and renewal. The Elysian Mysteries were public celebrations of the myth of Demeter and Persephone.

Sexual Preference: Straight

Weapon of Choice(Godly): Scythe

Powers/Abilities (Godly):
(Other than the regular abilities of gods)
-Growing plants
-Making cornucopias appear

Strengths(Godly):
-Wheat
-Barley
-Growing plants
-Making cornucopias appear

Weaknesses(Godly):
Her daughter Persephone. When Persephone has to return to Hades b/c she ate pomegranate seeds (the food of the dead) for three months, Demeter is inconsolable and thus we have winter.

-Cornucopias

Dislikes(Human/Godly):
-Hades
-Swimming
-People that make her bored.

Μελπιπɢ Θғϑ Ƥσшεгs: Hades rules over all in the Underworld and therefore controls all aspects of the dead.

Шελρσπs:

Staff of Power: Forged by the Cyclopes after the Titan War (Titanomachy). A two pronged spear black and made of Stygian Iron a metal of the Underworld. Carved with the faces of tortured souls that Hades himself has taken the pleasure in torturing.
(view spoiler)

Helm of Darkness: Forged by the Elder Cyclopes during the Titanomachy. Like his spear it is also made of Stygian Iron given the ability to cause a mere mortal to become invisible but a god to wield the darkness of fear and grasp the power to move unseen among other immortals. This is Hades true Symbol of Power and should it be stolen war could break out between the Olympians just as it would if Zeus' Master Bolt was Stolen or Poseidon's Trident.
(view spoiler)

Hades Sword: Hades' Sword (also known as the Sword of Hades) is Hades' main weapon. It is made of Stygian Iron and contains one of the Keys of Hades. The sword allows the wielder to send anyone to or from the Underworld with the lightest touch. Because Hades already has a symbol of power, the Helm of Darkness, the power of the sword could potentially tip the balance of power in Hades' favor over Zeus' Master Bolt or Poseidon's Trident.

Fλςε Clλιϻ: Stephen Jame
Fυll Ƥнψsιςλl Dεsςгιρτισπ: Hades
Hades is described as a god with albino white skin, intense black eyes that were either the eyes of a genius or a madman, and having a mesmerizing, evil charisma, and black hair. His voice is also described as oily. He is described as having a beard by some. He often wears black silk robes with evil souls threaded into the cloth. In battle, Hades rides on a black chariot pulled by dark shadowy mighty horses, and wears imposing black Stygian Iron armor with a blood-red cape and his terrifying helm. He arms himself with both his two-pronged staff and his mighty sword. He is also known to wear two rings: a silver skull one, and a fancy opal one (his wedding ring from Persephone).

Pluto
As Pluto, he dresses in a dark suit with a black and platinum tie and a tombstone gray shirt. If you look at his suit closely, you can see the souls trying to escape from their agony, much like Hades' robe. He still has the silver ring on his finger, which is as pale as the rest of his body. He is so pale that it is described as being the same color as cold milk. He looks very much like Adolf Hitler, but this could simply be what people see when they look at him (as when most saw Hades, he looked like every evil dictator in history). He also doesn't have a mustache and is clean shaven, with greasy black hair. His eyes are also very similar to his Greek form, being fiery, angry, and full of mad power. He is also known to wear two rings: a silver skull one (that he gave to Nico), and a fancy opal one (his wedding ring from Persephone).

Dгεssιπɢ Ѕτψlε:
Hades is the God of Wealth and by such he dresses for the title. Always wearing the finest black silks constantly seen in a suit when walking around mortals or even in the Underworld. He wears dark silk robes with mournful faces swirling in the cloth when he is allowed on Olympus.He is sometimes seen shirtless and if not silk he is wearing leather. The amount of tattoos on his body at the time reflect his rage the more tats the more rage.




▐ ❝Ever since I woke up emerging from my mother's womb only to be eaten whole by my father I have held a morbid outlook on life.❞

Ƥεгsσπλlιτψ: To be fair, Hades doesn't like to take risks, feels most comfortable on his own turf, and favors long-term survival over momentary satisfaction. But to consider these traits as negatives is to misunderstand Hades completely. Hades is notoriously hard to read. On the outside he often looks bored, disinterested, and lazy. On the inside, however, he is constantly re-evaluating situations and making plans for the future. Hades has a deep-seeded need for long-term security that heavily influences most of his behavior. To Hades, being secure means being able to live day to day on autopilot - having a comfortable routine that he can change at his whim but will always be there for him to fall back on. He doesn't mind living in squalor and eating scraps if it leads to an eventual reality of comfortable, if not extravagant living. In truth, Hades desires the finest homes, possessions, foods, and drinks. Though he can be self-indulgent, he will never sacrifice his future security for momentary bliss. Everything Hades does is in an attempt to realize the fantasy of being set comfortably for life.
Hades has a hard time living in the moment, and is prone to depression and sulking because his goal seems so far away. Hades needs to learn to take pleasure in each day and not just use it as a platform to get closer to his future. If he doesn't, he risks missing out on his own life as he is living it.
Hades is one of the master manipulators of the gods. Hades has a gift for convincing others to do whatever he wants them to. He prefer to blend into the background and wait for his prey to come to him. That’s not to say that Hades is evil or even ill-intentioned. He simply has the power to get others to do things that benefit him and push for hsi greater goals. Used for good, this is a rare and powerful skill set that can accomplish much more when shared with others than it could when Hades goes it alone.
As you might expect, Hades is charming, charismatic, and energetic. He is hard to ignore, unless you choose to ignore him and live on Olympus without a second thought going his way. Which is fine because most who meet him would have no reason to want to ignore him anyway. He is well-mannered and intriguing on the outside, but aggressive and even possessive on the inside. Once Hades discovers his power of persuasion over someone, it may become hard for him to control his desire to wield it. As it is in most superhero comics, it takes time to master a powerful gift, and in that time the student may choose to use their powers to help others or to serve themselves.
Hades has a markedly dominant personality, capable of impacting on his environment with great force and exerting control over those around him. Whether he chooses to be a leader or not, he can achieve solid career results in a variety of ways... Hades becomes very uncomfortable if he is forced to give up his autonomy or is compelled to submit to another’s authority. On the other hand, he must avoid being victimized or overwhelmed by his own drive and ambition. Intuitive-sensitive type, Hades may at times show a disturbing lack of emotional sensitivity. Hades is highly strategic in thought and action. This is demonstrated in his ability to overcome seemingly overwhelming odds, guided by an unerring instinct which tells him when to wait and when to act. Master of thorough and painstaking preparation, he is not in any hurry to achieve immediate results.
Hades is noted to be a particularly honorable and just as well as a harsh god. He respects oaths and the laws of morality. Ironically, he has never killed a mortal before attempting to kill Thalia. This is most obvious in that he never broke the oath concerning the birth of demigod children of the Big Three as well as when he allowed Sally Jackson to return to the mortal realm after his Helm of Darkness was recovered, something he was not bound to do. His respect for the law and his code of conduct is evident as he's the supreme judge of the dead souls and of all creatures that traverse to the Underworld. He is also noted to be a hardworking and busy god, rather unlike many of the other gods who take their duties and responsibilities in a much lighter manner, such as Dionysus and Apollo.
Despite his honorable habits, there is a cruel and darker side to Hades. Although he was the one to make a compromise with Demeter, he was indeed the one to trick Persephone into staying in the Underworld (though he did it because he was in love and searching for a wife). He also carries grudges for an extremely long time, a trait he passes onto his children. His traits mirror that of his father Kronos in terms of cunning, ruthlessness, and deviousness. As his daughter Bianca put it, "Holding grudges is dangerous for children of Hades. It is our fatal flaw." This is most obvious when he attempts to kill Thalia when Zeus breaks his vow, something that may have been further provoked by Zeus' attempted murder of his youngest children in World War II, ultimately resulting in the death of Maria di Angelo; it should be noted that he did not have the same murderous intent in regards to Percy, despite similarly being the result of the broken vow as a son of Poseidon (probably because he has no grudges against Poseidon). Hades is a harsh father and is often demanding and critical of Nico, who he constantly compares to Bianca, and rarely shows Nico that he does care for him.
His lover, Maria di Angelo, stated that he was a kind and generous man, hinting that there may be a softer side to him. His darker side stems from the bitterness he feels at being spurned by his fellow Olympians, which in turn leads to his habit of holding grudges.

Fatal Flaw Tendency to be a control freak. He needs to learn to back off and allow things to happen as they will. Although his hands may itch to do the job, he needs to give others a chance to do it their way, even if they make mistakes. Hades needs to try to remain sensitive to the feelings of those around him, Persephone especially.

Thanatos and Ker

Fλςε Clλιϻ: Harvey Newton Haydon
Fυll Ƥнψsιςλl Dεsςгιρτισπ:Thanatos is a god with Dark Brown hair cut short with small waves in it when not styled up as he normally does it. Thanatos' eyes are a strange Hazel seeming golden at times and greenish on other times. His eyes change according to his stance in death: Golden for when a god is fading into nothingness or is being killed or disposed of or if a war is taking place and the number of deaths is racking up beyond measure; Murky Green for when he is close to a mortal who is on his list of souls to reap; Creamy Blue for when death is calm and will sweep over the innocent. His skin is like ivory, pale and washed white, but at the same time it holds its own luminescent glow which can make others think him to be an off tan. One of his tattoos say Vanitas meaning Vanity in Latin along his lower abdomen just along his waistline.

Ƥεгsσπλlιτψ: Powerful, regal, and solitary, Thanatos has a powerful attractive quality that others can’t help but notice. Often eccentric and always proud, he is capable of great achievements as long as he can remain in control of himself.
Thanatos is his own best friend and worst enemy. He has the strength, influence, and vision to succeed beyond all reasonable expectations. Proud, noble, and brave, Thanatos was considered the warrior king among the primordials. He has the power to destroy god's and one of the very few god's who do. Similarly, those gods who were in positions of power were honored by mortals with comparison to this god.
Thanatos often carries this sense of entitlement into his life. Pride is extremely important and he has little problem cutting ties with anyone who doesn't believe in him. Simply put, Thanatos expects to win. He expects to succeed and will do so with or without the help of others. In fact, this trait is so strong that Thanatos avoids having very many close relationships in order to focus his energy on his goals.
Thanatos is often solitary. He values his time greatly and often feels that time spent socializing or making small talk is a complete waste. Instead, his energy is almost always focused on winning and getting the job done, which can be seen in famous stories such as the story of Sisyphus the man who cheated death/Thanatos. Thanatos may have lost toward the end but he got his revenge which is known to strongly seek out when in doubt. Thanatos can summon a tremendous amount of energy, and if he doesn't use this energy in a positive manner it will build up inside of him and become toxic.
thanatos has a reputation for letting his emotions get the best of him. With so much energy at his command it is easy for this energy to get misdirected, especially if thanatos feels he is not being as respected as he deserves. this happened during the great flood when Thanatos was released upon the world in a rage like no other. Self-sabotage is a likelihood with this god, particularly when he lets his fear of failure drive his emotional state. The problem is that he's far too often focused on how he appears more than who he is inside. Thanatos doesn't value personal relationships as much as he should.

▐ ❝The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Necessarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive—if their looks matched their charm and their cunning—they wouldn't only be dangerous.
They would be irresistible.❞



Hιsτσгψ:
Thanatos was regarded as merciless and indiscriminate, hated by—and hateful towards—mortals and the deathless gods. But in myths which feature him, Thanatos could occasionally be outwitted, a feat that the sly King Sisyphus of Korinth twice accomplished. When it came time for Sisyphus to die, Zeus ordered Thanatos to chain Sisyphus up in Tartarus. Sisyphus cheated death by tricking Thanatos into his own shackles, thereby prohibiting the demise of any mortal while Thanatos was so enchained.
Eventually Ares, the bloodthirsty god of war, grew frustrated with the battles he incited since neither side suffered any casualties. He released Thanatos and handed his captor over to the god. Sisyphus would evade Death a second time by convincing Persephone to allow him to return to his wife stating that she never gave him a proper funeral. This time, Sisyphus was forcefully dragged back to the Underworld by Hermes when Sisyphus refused to accept his death. Sisyphus was sentenced to an eternity of frustration in Tartarus where he rolled a boulder up a hill and it would roll back down when he got close to the top.
A fragment of Alcaeus, a Greek lyric poet of the 6th century BC, refers to this episode:
"King Sisyphos, son of Aiolos, wisest of men, supposed that he was master of Thanatos; but despite his cunning he crossed eddying Akheron twice at fate's command."
Sisyphus, son of Aiolos was a more than mortal figure: for mortals Thanatos usually presents an inexorable fate, but he was only once successfully overpowered, by the mythical hero Herakles. Thanatos was consigned to take the soul of Alkestis, who had offered her life in exchange for the continued life of her husband, King Admetos of Pherai. Herakles was an honored guest in the House of Admetos at the time, and he offered to repay the king's hospitality by contending with Death itself for Alkestis' life. When Thanatos ascended from Hades to claim Alkestis, Herakles sprung upon the god and overpowered him, winning the right to have Alkestis revived. Thanatos fled, cheated of his quarry.
When Thanatos came into being he was the next to eldest child of Nyx and Erebus. His entire life was doomed from the start. All feared him even the other primordials. The only beings in existence who never dared to see Thanatos as something horrible was his younger twin brother, Hypnos and twin sister Ker. The brothers had a palace together in the Underworld where they ensured that none would dare to enter. Their home was the home of Deep Sleep and Silent Death. Thanatos only found comfort in the presence of one being and that was and always shall be his brother Hypnos. The two would have been believed to be siamese twins because they were always seen together from young ages to adulthood. Thanatos also shared a small connection with his sister Ker because no one else would give her the comfort and respect she deserved. Hypnos and Ker were the only ones to view their twin as a person and not someone to be feared. They would constantly try to convince both god's and mortals alike where he is the true aspect of death in general he does not create violent death it was left to his sister Ker and his many sister's servants the Keres. He was the aspect of death that made it exist, but his sisters were the treason for murders and suicides and death on the battlefield.
Fλτεs:
Thanatos, in bringing death, is often followed by the fates of death or Keres, who are called Hounds of Hades, and are Death-spirits, devourers of life and serve under both Thanatos, Ker, and Hades. Thanatos, is subject to the MOERAE/FATES, who are the three sisters who decide on human fate; and as everybody has a portion in life, the individual fate (moira) is usually present when Thanatos comes to fetch a mortal. Thanatos only truly answers to the Fates working under Hades does not make him so much as ruled by Hades, but working for him like an employee, when it is truly the Fates who control Thanatos and control the fates of mortals and the deathless gods. This allows the deathless gods to become irrelevant because the fates hold power to give power to Thanatos to destroy the god's should they choose to retaliate against fate.
Hλτεғυl Gσd:
Death is hated by mortals, who call him black, evil, and grievous. For they think that darkness will enfold them when Death lays his heavy hands on them. Although Thanatos may come first in Old Age, mortals still call him swift, and his arrival is often regarded as unannounced or sudden, causing even surprise. Yet there are no doubts about Thanatos' coming, and no man knows for certain whether he will still be living the next day.
Ƥλιπғυl Ƭнιπɢs:
Some have believed that in such cases the alternative is not between dying or not dying, but rather between dying now and dying later. They have also thought that danger of life or death is not the only thing deserving regard, but also whether what is done is good or bad. For, they reason, preserving life at the price of performing bad deeds, may ruin life itself, turning it into a painful shame. So, as some fear Death, others fear to live in fear, or are more afraid of slavery and other similar things than of Death.
Dελτн Єsςλρεs Cσπτгσl:
It is said that Death escapes control, and that the mind should be busy controlling what can be controlled, disregarding what cannot be controlled; and so they say:
"I must die: must I, then, die groaning too? I must go into exile: does anyone, then, keep me from going with a smile and cheerful and serene?"
And they add that such a dialog could come up:
"Tell your secrets."
"I say not a word; for this is under my control."
"But I will fetter you."
"My leg you will fetter, but my moral purpose not even Zeus himself has power to overcome."
"I will throw you into prison."
"My paltry body, rather!"
"I will behead you."
"Well, when did I ever tell you that mine was the only neck that could not be severed?"

Hιsτσгψ Cσπτιπυεd:
Fελг Θғϑ Dελτн:
Some affirm that Death should not be feared, for no one knows whether this god brings good or evil. It has been observed that despite the fact that nobody knows what Death is, there are those who act, in court or in other dangerous circumstances, as if they were to suffer something terrible if they were put to death; and conversely they act as if they would be immortal in case they were not killed. It is also well known that most mortals experience joyous feelings when they escape Death, and many among them are prepared to make all kinds of efforts and sacrifices in order to postpone, no matter for how little time, the arrival of this punctual god.
Ιπsιπςεгε Ƥгλψεгs:
Yet the coming of Death may be a joy for those who are held in great misery and pain, and they may sincerely say, both in their hearts and aloud: "Come Death!". However, there are others who complain beyond measure, praying insincerely for Death, but once this god comes close, neither life, nor sickness, nor Old Age seem any longer burdensome to them. That is what happened to the old man who called Death, wearied as he was of carrying wood to the city for sale; and when Death came and asked for what reason he had called him, the old man, forgetting his tiredness, hurriedly replied: "That, lifting up the load, you may place it again upon my shoulders."
If to live is to be dead ...

But

"Who knows if to live is to be dead, and to be dead, to live? And we really, it may be, are dead; in fact I once heard sages say that we are now dead, and the body is our tomb ..." (Socrates. Plato, Gorgias 492e).

If to live is to be dead, if we really are dead, then our world must be the kingdom of death. To inhabit such a kingdom means to die continuously, to be subject to transience, to agony, and loss. To lead the existence of a shadow that will soon vanish. To repeatedly watch the defeat of goodness, the destruction of love and joy, of beauty and innocence. To go hungry or thirsty. To be sick or old. To know exhaustion, fear, anguish, violence or desolation. To destroy and be destroyed: to be the client of death in every respect. Confused and wounded, the shadows wander about their nocturnal kingdom, and from the openings of their tombs take darkness for light and death for life. They forget they are shadows, since they have drunk from the spring of oblivion ... But sometimes a spark of memory makes them search for the light of such a dawn as might reveal, beyond the fields of death, another landscape: a kingdom of life where love has made decay unknown, and no one ever dies.

These days Thanatos does his usual job, but it has been noted as swift and deadly as he may be as the true personification of death itself he is a comforter in death. His work is considered art to some, but at funerals Thanatos mourns with the weeping mortals. his sister Ker can be a bit eccentric at times and summons his power often when she creates death before the string of fate has been fully threaded. Thanatos has accepted that it is her job as goddess of Violent Death, but her Keres often wreak more havoc than they need to and have stirred the very Fates to become angered by their actions. Thanatos spends a lot of his time pinning his sisters, the Keres, in the Underworld until thanatos himself feels that it is time for them to wreak havoc. Naturally, the Keres have broken free of the Underworld a number of times. The Great Flood, The Holocaust, the extinction of the dinosaurs, the Ice Age, and the list goes on. thanatos can't always have a hold on such spirited beings and at times to end their destruction he must call upon both his siblings Ker and Hypnos to round up the death-spirits to ensure that life may go on for with life death may continue as well.

Alexander G. (taughtlocket6) | 249 comments Godly Name - Apollo
First Name (Human) - Adam
Middle Name (Human) - Samson
Last Name (Human) - Archer

Parent(s) (Godly) - Zeus
Other Family (Immortal) - Artemis, Hera

Age (Human) - 18
Birthday (Human) - July 12th
Birthplace (Human) - Los Angeles California

Personality(3+ sentences) - Apollo has been obsessed with haikus ever since he visited Japan and also appears to obsess over other kinds of poems, depending on where he visits. Although he considers himself a great poet, he is actually really terrible at it. He loves his 'little' sister Artemis, even though they often clash, as he is the more laid back, less serious twin; he is always hitting on her Hunters as well. He often helps his Demigod Brothers, Sisters and Cousins on quests. Apollo is arrogant, self-centered, and cocky. Apollo is also a major flirt, as he often flirts with Artemis' hunters, even though she has forbidden it. Despite his flirting however, the Hunters refuse to be charmed by Apollo, due to their oath. However, there is also a darker side to Apollo, and he is shown to be capable of cruelty, shown when he placed a terrible curse on his son, just because the latter tried to go against fate.

History(5+ sentences) (Godly) - When Leto was pregnant, Hera was furious with Zeus' unfaithfulness and forbade the God from giving birth on either the islands or mainlands. Fortunately, the floating isle of Delos gave sanctuary to Leto, and through the help of all the goddesses, who begged Hera to allow Eilethyia, the goddess of childbirth, to come to Leto, she finally gave birth to the goddess Artemis and, nine days later, Apollo. A four day-old Apollo petitioned Hephaestus for a golden bow and a set of arrows which he used to kill Python, a dragon that was previously sent by Hera to chase his mother, Leto. After his defeat of Python, Apollo established the Oracle of Delphi as recompense, for Python was the child of Gaea, and Gaea complained to Zeus about Apollo's act. He also established the Pythian games and named his Oracle the Pythia, to honor his great foe. He then traveled the world doing his now usual job for hundreds of years, helping his Demigod siblings and bothering his "little" sister.

Appearance

Apollo with his sister, Artemis.
-Eye color: Blue
-Hair color: Blonde
-Height: (Varies)
-Weight: (Varies, but always muscular)
-Markings/Tattoos/etc: None

Relationship Status (Godly) - Single
Former Relationships (Godly) - None
Sexual Preference - Heterosexual
Weapon of Choice(Godly) - A golden bow and arrows infused with the power of the sun.
Powers/Abilities (Godly) -
Fighting Powers: Apollo has great superhuman strength and fighting skills, as the Homeric hymns describe that no ropes can bind him. He also wrestled and nearly killed Hercules before Zeus threw his thunderbolt between the two when Hercules tried to steal his Oracle's tripod. Apollo also defeated Ares in boxing during the very first Olympic games, which were for the gods.
Archery: As the god of archery, he excels in archery as well as other target-shooting-based activities, such as basketball. Apollo's arrows can invisibly strike a person, no matter how far away he is. His skills in archery are only rivaled by his sister Artemis and the giant Orion.
Swordsmanship: Apollo is also an expert swordsman, as Homer describes him as 'Apollo of the Golden Sword'. Apollo once had an extremely sharp sword made of adamantium and Imperial Gold, but rarely used it, and later gave it to his younger brother Hermes in exchange for the flute.
Musical Ability: As the god of music, he is an expert musician, and can play any musical instrument perfectly, though he is most often seen with his lyre. Apollo also has four golden celedons accompanying him in his musical performances, as well as being the leader of the Muses.
Photokinesis: As the god of light, he has absolute control and divine authority over light.
Create illusions/hallucinations.
Create light shields/force fields.
Project healing energies (different from Vitakinesis).
Blast of light to impale or blind enemies for some time or maybe forever.
Create a ball or shape of light to blast.
Pyrokinesis: As the god of the sun, he has absolute control over the flames of his Sun Chariot.
Supernatural Sight: As the god of light and the sun, he can see anything and anywhere during the day.
Vitakinesis: As the god of healing and medicine, he can manipulate and modify a person's anatomy.
He can instantly heal almost any wounds at a quicker rate than even other Olympians.
Disease Manipulation: If angered, Apollo can cause several diseases, mainly plague. During the Trojan War, when Agamemnon offended him, Apollo infected the latter's army with plague. Apollo uses special arrows for this, which explode and disseminate various horrible diseases.
Prophecy: As the god of prophecy and foresight, he is able to see into the future. However, he is unable to tell anyone future events, except through his Oracles, as then the information would become meaningless. This is a dangerous ability, and his only child known to have inherited it is Halcyon Green. Apollo does not have full control over this power either. He does not always know what the prophecies mean nor can he always control when they are told.
Divine Wisdom: Apollo is the god of knowledge and is extremely intelligent, although Athena, Zeus and Poseidon surpass him.
Truth: He is also the god of truth and was known to never tell a lie.


Strengths(Godly) - Archery, Swordsmanship, Prophecy, and Foresight
Weaknesses(Godly) - Flirting and Poetry

⇢Keres
Ker is the creator and master of the Keres, predictably by the name. The first Keres are her sisters, while Ker herself can create new ones out of the spirits of those who truly suffered in death. She is sometimes confused with simply being one of them, and she hates that. They are demons of death and violence.
⇢Invisibility
The goddess of death no longer openly approaches souls directly, and instead, chooses to reap them while staying invisible.
⇢Flight
With the help of her black wings, she can quickly glide through the air.
⇢Darazkinesis
A powerful ability if used properly can take all energy and convert it into dark energy, only her, Hades, and her brother Thanatos possess this power given it transfers Life energy into Death Energy. It is the rare ability to transform soul energy into dark energy. To some it is known as the touch of Death or Stare of Pain. Unfortunately, with her violent ways Ker has never had as much control over this as the others have.
⇢Umbrakinesis
Shadow and Darkness control as a child of both Erebus and Nyx she holds a great affinity for darkness.
*Bend shadows
*Can sense any death, mortal or monster.
*Able to enchant weapons with Soul-damaging powers.
*Able to see the natural lifespan of others.
⇢Destruction
The power to unmake and destroy anything, everything and everyone to total and utter nothingness. Thanatos can collect souls and carry them but Ker has the ability to completely destroy them. And anything else she wishes. However, as Immortals do not have souls, she can only destroy them if Thanatos makes them mortal.

It’s impossible to like aggressive things without being an aggressive person, and for Ker, nothing has been truer. She loves nothing more than getting riled up and verbally - if not physically - abusing someone. She’s got a wicked violent side, and once it’s provoked it is most definitely a sign to get out of the way. Nothing scares Ker. The gorier and the more violent the thing, the more she likes it, especially if it’s actually happening in person. Especially since fear is still behind her blockade. It's literally impossible for her to feel fear.
If befriending Ker, beware. She doesn’t shy from seeking out dangerous things and dragging her friends into dangerous - and sometimes even potentially fatal - situations. Boredom is a problem with her, and she’s even been known to set up her own dangerous situations. More often than not, other people are the victims of the goddess's boredom.

As she was cursed and changed when she was young, sometimes she still has problems with emotions. She doesn't always quite understand what they are, and the ones she does know are right on edge. She's much more likely to get upset than even Hades. Ker can't feel many emotions, the prominent ones being kindness and mercy.



▐ ❝I don't change who you are. I just reach deep inside you and amplify it.❞


Hιsτσгψ:
Ancient:
When she was born, Ker had no purpose. They weren't expecting another child, and she had no assignment. It was incredibly lonely and depressing to have no purpose, especially when everyone else did. She went to her parents, begging for something she could have. Thanatos sided with her, believing that she should be able to have a true job. Because he was the only one who even put up with her, she sided with him against Eros. It was her idea that brought the love god down, and that's what finally gave her purpose.
She grew into her duties as violent death, and soon destruction as a general whole was hers to control. But after only a day or so it was decided that with her duties, everything she had to do would drive her mad. It was supposed to be a secret, but Thanatos told her what was going to happen, hoping to convince her to accept it.
Instead Ker flipped. She couldn't stand that all these people were deciding her fate for her. Besides, she knew what it would mean. No more happiness, no more joy, no more love for her family. She tried to run off, but her family found her. That was the only time Ker has ever cried in all of history. She broke down, begging with them to just leave her alone, but Nyx, Erebus, Hypnos, and the others knew that having to destroy souls would destroy her.
They blocked off her memory of the event, and the memories of what had happened. It was made so she wouldn't remember that she had ever had emotions, then blocked her emotions.
In the beginning Ker just did her job. She was perfectly psychopathic, no emotions. She stayed close to her brother, Thanatos. But as time went on, the emotional block slowly began to wear off. Her behavior grew more sporadic as she grew into the emotions, and took a downhill turn. She saw what she'd done. But she was used to it. Emotions didn't effect that part. However, instead of simply doing her job, she started enjoying it. It amused her how people begged for their lives. Their screams were her music.
Eventually, taking souls and torturing them in the Fields of Punishment wasn't enough. She wanted something... fresher. So she went from taking souls to taking lives. Instead of just taking their soul, she went out of her way to kill them before their time, reveling in it. This way she could spill some real blood.
Memories started to resurface, escaping the barrier. She remembered what her family had done to her, and it gave her her first true strong emotion, the first one besides pleasure.
Hate. As they always have ever since this first one, it came with agonizing pain and an incredible upheaval of that emotion. As it was the first time she'd felt hate for thousands of years, the emotion was so intense that for a brief time she did go mad with it, especially since anger accompanied hate as it usually does. She single handedly killed all of the dinosaurs before Thanatos calmed her down enough to get her to control it. That event was what gave her the control of destruction.

Hιsτσгψ: Continued
Modern:
There have been no strong emotions since then, so she's stuck to feeling pleasure. She started mixing things up, playing with her prey before she killed them. However, torture immediately was too mundane. Seduce, sex, torture, kill became her new strategy.
At this point, her favorite thing to do is to hang out at a nightclub. With her looks it's easy for her to pick up a guy. Then she takes them off to either her human place or theirs, and either she leaves content, or she just has to kill them to cheer herself up. Either way, good deal for her.

Ƥεгsσπλlιτψ: Powerful, clever, and determined, Eros is a mysterious individual who uses his immense intellect to outwit others in the game of life. And to him, life is a game; a challenge to be won. Just like a professional poker player, he keeps a straight face and keeps others guessing about his next move. It can be very hard to know what he is thinking or feeling since he rarely ever talks about his inner fears or hesitations. Eros harnesses much more power than meets the eye. The size or strength of his opponent matters little, especially since he is an expert in manipulation and uses his intelligence to outwit his opponents at every turn. Eros likes to use his cunning to draw others to him, rather than chasing after anyone or anything. If it seems like Eros is competitive, that’s because he is. He doesn't automatically take everything seriously, but he likes to (and expects to win) at anything which requires strategy, manipulation, or intelligence. He is the proverbial chess player of life, always looking at the whole board before making a move. Eros is not usually naturally athletic and tends to stay away from these types of competitions (unless, of course, they find an athletic event they think they can win at). Eros is love and love never plays fair. He is mostly a loner, but he does enjoy socializing from time to time, especially with those who share his outlook on life. In public, he is usually fairly withdrawn and reserved. He prefers observing others before engaging them, and when meeting a new person will usually hesitate to share much about himself and will instead ask questions about others. Others may see him as quiet and even strange, but once they get to know him, Eros becomes quite popular. If nothing else, he is interesting, smart, and funny. He has a certain indefinable charm that others find intriguing. While he is mostly amiable, Eros does have a tendency to be jealous, suspicious, and overly sensitive. He is among the least forgiving people you will meet, so be careful not to offend him if you want to see him again. He needs to learn to relax and realize that he doesn't always have to have the upper-hand. Deep down he fears appearing vulnerable or foolish, and rarely forgives himself for mistakes he makes.

Fλτλl Flλш Envy, Pride, Jealousy, Revengeful: All of Eros' greatest weaknesses are his most fatal flaws. He fears of losing his power over others or being judged by others. This creates a burning envy that pushes limits. He holds envy over many things because he is not seen as highly as most other gods. His pride is what keeps his self-esteem going because once you make it visible that he can manipulate you he will take such great pride in it he could boast a bit. From his pride and envy comes jealousy and revengefulness. Eros will stop at nothing to ensure whatever he desires that someone else has he willachieve for himself. If you insult him you better expect paybacks to the tenth degree. Eros certainly isn't a god to say no to and he really isn't one to get on the bad side of.

▐ ❝Oh, did you expect me to play fair? I am the god of love. I am never fair.❞


Hιsτσгψ:
Ancient History: Eros was the mischievous god of love, a minion and constant companion of the goddess Aphrodite. Eros is the son of Aphrodite and Ares. Eros is the god of love, Sexual Desire, procreation, & reincarnation. In particular erotic, romantic, love. He is often represented blindfolded because, love is often blind. His "weapon" is arrows or darts when at a club or bar. In either case the tips have been magically treated to produce either uncontrollable love or insurmountable disinterest in the first person seen be Eros's victim after wounding.

Eros, the Greek god of love and sexual desire (the word eros, which is found in the Iliad by Homer, is a common noun meaning sexual desire). He was also worshiped as a fertility god, believed to be a contemporary of the primeval Chaos, which makes Eros one of the oldest gods. In the Dionysian Mysteries Eros is referred to as "Protagonus", the first born. But there are many variations to whom the parents of Eros really were. According to Aristophanes (Birds) he was born from Erebus and Nyx (Night); in later mythology Eros is the offspring of Aphrodite and Ares. Yet in the Theogony, the epic poem written by Hesiod, it mentions a typified Eros as being an attendant of Aphrodite, but not her son. Another legend says that he was the son of Iris and Zephyrus.

In truth one could think of Eros as a simplistic Orphan. His story is one that gives him his power. He was born to the first god Chaos making him truly the first born as Protoganus. Protoganus Eros chose to become another life closer to the gods he allows to procreate. It is then he becomes a child of Nyx (Night) and Erebus (Dark) through reincarnation. The first god to ever die tragically and reborn again. Eros growing up was a sibling to Hypnos and Thanatos. Hypnos didn't mind him too much, but Thanatos was not fond of him at all. He was Hypnos' twin, but Eros was more like him than one would think. The two often were caught fighting as Thanatos held a hatred for Eros always stealing the limelight and being the center of attention. Thanatos tricked Eros one day as his rage burned cold with hatred. Thanatos informed Eros of Kronos' attempt to seduce their mother Nyx making him unfaithful to Rhea. Thanatos knew knew this would infuriate Eros as he was all abotu faithfulness to spouses. Killed by Kronos merely by incident during the times of the Golden age. Kronos meant to woe Nyx and failed when he believed it to be Erebus who stopped him he lashed out killing a god and the only god to ever truly die. But Hades took pity on the soul once Kronos was defeated and gave him life once more. So Thanatos through treachery committed the first true murder of a god. Iris (the Rainbow) and Zephyrus (the West Wind) soon gave birth to Eros the second time, and as an immortal he was given his power once more over desire. Something never believed to be possible without the power of Hades. Of course the Fates made it so once more for the deity to suffer. Murdered by eating a Golden apple from the Tree of Immortals poisoned by Thanatos his ancient sibling of his first true life who still held his grudge against Eros that had burned him with Envy. Thanatos made the Immortal Apple the Apple of Death long before the Apple of Discord had been made for the fairest. Thanatos was blessed the title of God of Death because of this act as a god he killed a god. Thanatos gained greater power as he seemed to be the only god with the power to kill immortals.
Eros then was at last given birth once more in the intercourse of the Goddess Aphrodite and Ares. From the early legend of Eros it is said that he was responsible for the embraces of Uranus (Heaven or Sky) and Gaia (Earth), and from their union were born many offspring. It was also written that Eros hatched our race and made it appear first into the light (Birds, by Aristophanes). Although one of the oldest gods, he was a latecomer to Greek religion. He was worshiped in many regions of Greece, at Thespiae there was an ancient fertility cult, and in Athens he and Aphrodite had a joint cult. Also in Athens the fourth day of every month was sacred to Eros. Sometimes Eros was worshiped by the name Erotes (which is the plural of Eros); this personified all the attractions that evoked love and desire, this included heterosexual and homosexual allurements. Anteros (the Returner of Love also known as the god of Mutual Love) was the brother of Eros, which comes from the life of which Aphrodite and Ares became the mother and father of Eros. Eros is usually depicted as a young winged boy, with his bow and arrows at the ready, to either shoot into the hearts of gods or mortals which would rouse them to desire. His arrows came in two types: golden with dove feathers which aroused love, or leaden arrows which had owl feathers that caused indifference. Sappho the poet summarized Eros as being bitter sweet, and cruel to his victims, yet he was also charming and very beautiful. Being unscrupulous, and a danger to those around him, Eros would make as much mischief as he possibly could by wounding the hearts of all, but according to one part of his life Eros himself fell in love. This legend tells us that Eros was always at his mothers side assisting her in all her conniving and godly affairs. The legend goes on to say that Aphrodite became jealous of the beauty of a mortal, a beautiful young woman named Psyche.

▐ ❝I love my son Pothos, but I'm not going to be harassed by anyone on my parenting skills.❞



Hιsτσгψ:
Ancient History: In a fit of jealousy Aphrodite sent Eros, her son to claim vengeance upon Psyche and those who neglect to worship Aphrodite and choose to worship Psyche instead. Unfortunately, for Aphrodites wrath, Eros saw the girl he was to seek vengeance upon for his mother and fell deeply in love.
Psyche's father feared her fate for she was unmarried and without children. Psyche is arrayed in funeral attire, conveyed by a procession to the peak of a rocky crag, and exposed. Marriage and death are merged into a single rite of passage, a "transition to the unknown". Zephyrus, the attendant of Eros, used his winds to whisk Psyche away into a lovely meadow where she was allowed to make home. Psyche was sacrificed for the mere fact that the oracle of Apollo spoke to Psyche's father, the king, and told the king to expect no human son-in-law, but rather a dragon-like creature who harasses the world with fire and iron and is feared by even Jupiter and the inhabitants of the underworld.
after Psyche was removed from her family she was lured into a bedroom where she had no experience with intercourse or anything else for that matter. In the darkness of the cave where the bedroom was a being visits her and makes her his wife. In the darkness the being was unseen and made Psyche his wife and the mother of their future child as she was now pregnant.
Psyche's family longs for news of her, and after much cajoling, Eros, still unknown to his bride, permits Zephyrus to carry her sisters up for a visit. When they see the splendor in which Psyche lives, they become envious, and undermine her happiness by prodding her to uncover her husband's true identity, since surely as foretold by the oracle she was lying with the vile winged serpent, who would devour her and her child.
One night after Cupid falls asleep, Psyche carries out the plan her sisters devised: she brings out a dagger and a lamp she had hidden in the room, in order to see and kill the monster. But when the light instead reveals the most beautiful creature she has ever seen, she is so startled that she wounds herself on one of the arrows in Cupid's cast-aside quiver. Struck with a feverish passion, she spills hot oil from the lamp and wakes him. He flees, and though she tries to pursue, he flies away and leaves her on the bank of a river. Psyche then began her wandering of the earth in search for Eros her love.
Psyche visits first one sister, then the other; both are seized with renewed envy upon learning the identity of Psyche's secret husband. Each sister attempts to offer herself as a replacement by climbing the rocky crag and casting herself upon Zephyrus for conveyance, but instead is allowed to fall to a brutal death.
In the course of her wanderings, Psyche comes upon a temple of Demeter, and inside finds a disorder of grain offerings, garlands, and agricultural implements. Recognizing that the proper cultivation of the gods should not be neglected, she puts everything in good order, prompting a theophany of Demeter herself. Although Psyche prays for her aid, and Demeter acknowledges that she deserves it, the goddess is prohibited from helping her against a fellow goddess. A similar incident occurs at a temple of Hera. Psyche realizes that she must serve Aphrodite herself.
Aphrodite revels in having the girl under her power, and turns Psyche over to her two handmaids, Worry and Sadness, to be whipped and tortured. Aphrodite tears her clothes and bashes her head into the ground, and mocks her for conceiving a child in a sham marriage. The goddess then throws before her a great mass of mixed wheat, barley, poppyseed, chickpeas, lentils, and beans, demanding that she sort them into separate heaps by dawn. But when Aphrodite withdraws to attend a wedding feast, a kind ant takes pity on Psyche, and assembles a fleet of insects to accomplish the task. Aphrodite is furious when she returns drunk from the feast, and only tosses Psyche a crust of bread. At this point, it is revealed that Eros is also in the house of Aphrodite, languishing from his injury.
At dawn, Aphrodite sets a second task for Psyche. She is to cross a river and fetch golden wool from violent sheep who graze on the other side. These sheep are elsewhere identified as belonging to the Sun or Apollo. Psyche's only intention is to drown herself on the way, but instead she is saved by instructions from a divinely inspired reed, of the type used to make musical instruments, and gathers the wool caught on briers.
For Psyche's third task, she is given a crystal vessel in which to collect the black water spewed by the source of the rivers Styx and Cocytus. Climbing the cliff from which it issues, she is daunted by the foreboding air of the place and dragons slithering through the rocks, and falls into despair. Zeus himself takes pity on her, and sends his eagle to battle the dragons and retrieve the water for her.
The last trial Aphrodite imposes on Psyche is a quest to the underworld itself. She is to take a box (pyxis) and obtain in it a dose of the beauty of Persephone, queen of the underworld. Aphrodite claims her own beauty has faded through tending her ailing son, and she needs this remedy in order to attend the theatre of the gods (theatrum deorum).
Everything comes to pass according to plan, and Persephone grants Psyche's humble entreaty. As soon as she reenters the light of day, however, Psyche is overcome by a bold curiosity, and can't resist opening the box in the hope of enhancing her own beauty. She finds nothing inside but an "infernal and Stygian sleep," which sends her into a deep and unmoving torpor.
Meanwhile, Eros' wound has healed into a scar, and he escapes his mother's house by flying out a window. When he finds Psyche, he draws the sleep from her face and replaces it in the box, then pricks her with an arrow that does no harm. He lifts her into the air, and takes her to present the box to Aphrodite.
He then takes his case to Zeus, who gives his consent in return for Eros' future help whenever a choice maiden catches his eye. Zeus has Hermes convene an assembly of the gods in the theater of heaven, where he makes a public statement of approval, warns Aphrodite to back off, and gives Psyche ambrosia, the drink of immortality, so the couple can be united in marriage as equals.
Of course to rule over desire the god himself had succumb to his own powers and even consented by Hera herself for their bondage he has flings just as any other god, but the one he has always confided in, Hera, has cursed dear Eros forcing him to be faithful should he wish to bare children. She couldn't see him turn like Zeus had. She had cursed the poor god of procreation to only induce it in others, but never having the power to bare children of his own. Still kept secret, by Hera and other goddesses of birth, to this very day from him.
Psyche's and Eros' union, Zeus said, will redeem Eros from his history of provoking adultery and sordid liaisons. Zeus' word is solemnized with a wedding banquet.
With its happy marriage and resolution of conflicts, the tale ends in the manner of classic comedy or Greek romances such as Daphnis and Chloe. The child born to the couple will be Hedone, "Pleasure."
It was not long after having the lovely Hedone that Psyche now titled as goddess of the Soul bared another child. Pothos was born with an air of grief. Psyche felt pain as she held him only crying everytime he was in her arms suckling from her. Eros knew nothing to do as he himself could not bare to be in the same room as his son who pained im at the mere sight. Pothos brought a strange sort of pain for those around him. One that brought grief and depression worse than anything else. He made people long for something as if he were a dead child they were forced to hold and care for. Pothos gave the world longing, desire, and yearning for what is not humanly possible to attain. Psyche at last was unable to hold the burden of caring for a child who made her long for happiness itself. Eros sent him away with his servant Zephyrus, the West wind, and his first consort Iris, messenger goddess of the Rainbow. Zephyrus and Iris saw the child as a blessing. Eros chose the two due to they had once been parents of Eros' in a past life and who better to raise the son of Eros than parents from one of his past lives. Zephyrus and Iris were both very happy to claim the child as their own.
Beyond that Eros has tried multiple times in history to have children, but failed every time.
Zephyros did such a favor for him as the servant of Eros only because of a misleading in the past. Apollo loved a mortal and so did Zephyros. Zephyros killed the mortal and Apollo hunted him down. Eros protected him and offered protection in terms of Zephyrus becoming his servant.
The Romans borrowed Eros from the Greeks and named him Cupid (Latin cupido meaning desire). Eros has been depicted in art in many ways. The Romans regarded him as a symbol of life after death and decorated sarcophagi with his image. The Greeks regarded him as most beautiful and handsome, the most loved and the most loving. They placed statues of him in gymnasiums (as most athletes were thought to be beautiful). He was depicted on every form of utensil, from drinking vessels to oil flasks, usually showing him ready to fire an arrow into the heart of an unsuspecting victim.

Modern History:
Today Eros continues his work as the god of sexual desires still succumbing to his own powers. Blinded by the power Hera has over his mind. He cherishes her judgement, but the only way she could have someone close to her is by keeping the secret of the curse from him. Eros has many mortal affairs with many demigods, but Hera knew his children mixed with the blood of another gods would create havoc. Keeping him faithful for the most part and cursing him to never bare children depresses him even with the fact that he knows nothing of the curse. He may only have children to Psyche but has not bared any. He seeks someone who's love can give rise to a child. And with the help of higher Olympians he could possibly manage such a thing if he has not already. Eros remains wondering the mortal world and the life of demigods he keeps his private life private but it is always a one night stand unless he manages to get them pregnant then he remains comforting them for the grief to come as they always miscarry.
Naturally there is always a loophole for this curse, but Eros has yet to discover it as he cannot figure out why he is infertile to demigods and other gods except for his beloved Psyche.

Θτнεг: Eros can remember almost all of his past lives, but for a small handful and minor details. The gods made it so he wouldn't remember anything from his past lives that could affect his loyalty to them. Eros has had more lives than four none that have been half as notable or important as the others. Eileithyia was his mother in his true fourth life before Aphrodite and Ares. Poros & Penia were his parents in his true third life before Zephyros and Iris. Rumor even has been spread of Hermes and Artemis being his parents. Some say Artemis was raped by Hermes and sworn to silence against the Styx others say it was an athletic union much like the way Athena conceives her children through the mind. Artemis simply willed the child to be born from the wild instead of her womb making her remain a virgin goddess as Hermes simply connected sensually with her and not sexually. One alleged truth is that Eros became one of the few and elite group of male hunters of Artemis and was a son of Hermes. Eros was a demigod at the time and Artemis pretty much raised him. A Nemean Lion was what killed him and Hermes never did forgive Artemis for being unable to heal his son. NAturally, every myth has a hundred versions, now if Eros can unravel what truths were hidden from him and which myths are the real story.
Eros has had more lives than even Dionysus/Zagreus the other god of reincarnation.
