Aphrodite was the goddess of love, beauty, sexuality, desire, lust and fertility. She is the eldest of the Olympian gods.

History

After the Titan Cronus dismembered Ouranos, he threw his father's remains and genitals into the Sea. Thalassa was impregnated by this, and gave birth to Aphrodite, in the form of sea foam. The sea in which she was born is said to be near Paphios, a city on the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea. She later joined the Olympians after Zeus assumed power and quickly became the source of conflict among the gods. Although he was tempted to take her for himself, Zeus eventually married her to Hephaestus to resolve it. Unhappy with the marriage, Aphrodite had an affair with the handsome and passionate Ares even after her husband humiliated her by publicly exposing her relationship. With Ares they conceived several children, including Anteros, Phobos, Deimos, Eros and Harmonia. She would also have romances with both mortals and other gods over the centuries. In some myths it is said she goes to the place she rose from every year and dresses in her finest garments.

Aphrodite would later divorce Hephaestus and marry Ares, while Hephaestus married Charis, the daughter of the Oceanid Eurynome.

Appearance

Being the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite was the most beautiful goddess. She appeared to anyone as what they saw as beautiful in another.

Personality

Aphrodite was both temperamental and vain. She was also crafty, flirtatious and seductive. Despite these qualities she is both very loving and passionate, having a faith in love that is obvious and true. Aphrodite is very benevolent and gentle to those she favours and deeply cares for her children as well as their fathers. Presiding over the most powerful of human feelings, she has great insight into mortal emotions as well as morral nature by extension. It is nearly impossible to disagree with her; she is also unfaithful to Hephaestus with all of her affair.

Capabilities

Aphrodite was adorned with the powers of a goddess, able to appear in several places at once
