Ancient Greek Gods for
Ares was the god of war. He was true royalty as far as
the gods were concerned. His parents were the king and queen of the
ancient Greek god world. His father was Zeus and his mother was Hera.
Ares was tall. He was handsome. He was
mean. He was self-centered. Nobody liked him much.
Ares best friend was
Eris, the spirit of disagreement. The two often traveled together, and
they often brought some other pals with them - the spirits of Pain, Panic, and Famine.
When the ancient Greeks went to war, Ares
often got involved. He did not care who won or lost a battle. He just liked
bloodshed. His best friend, the spirit Eris, did not care that much
about bloodshed, but she loved to cause angry disagreement - the
angrier, the better. The pair of them were
nothing but trouble.
