Ares - God of WarAres, the greek god of war, son of Hera and Zeus, became one of the most exalted of the Olympian gods. But he quickly became the most hated among the gods. All the gods hated him except:
Ares was brave and strong but he was also argumentative, impulsive, bloodthirsty and destructive. In conflicts, he chose sides randomly and sometimes even changed sides in the middle of the war. He simply took pleasure in the bloodshed, slaughter and wanton destruction of war.
Ironically, he was not a skillful warrior:
Ares never married, but he had dozens of children with both mortals and immortals. The most notable of these many mistresses was the goddess of love: Aphrodite.
