The Savage Gods

by Michael L. and Cam'Ron A.

Hepheastus

Hepheastus was the god of blacksmiths, sculptors, mettallurgy, fire, and volcanoes. He was also known as the Vulcan. His parents were Zues: his father and Hera: his mother and Aphrodite: his wife. He was raised by different parents Thetis and Eurynome. The reason he was raised by different parents were because his real parents threw him from Olympus because he was crippled.

Ares

Ares, the god of war and the son of mother: Hera and father: Zues. Raw and violence and untamed acts that occured in wartime was what Ares represented. He was also disliked by his parents. Once a myth appeared he was depicted as a violent personality, which faced humiliation through defeats more than once. A kind of weird thing about Ares is that he is the lover of his sister: Aphrodite who was married to Hepheastus.

Hermes

The Greek God of commerce, also the son of father: Zeus, but he has a different mother: Maia. He was able to move very quick and swiftly and was also quick acting and cunning. He was the protector of thieves, athletes, and travelers. When Hermes was born he once jumped out of his crib and stole Apollo's cattle and then went back to playing innocent in his crib. His nicknames are Mercury and Ermis.
