Zeus

god of heavens and earth

Characteristic


zeus was usually depicted as regal, in control and strong. He gave wise counsel and was the supreme leader of all the gods. Zeus was quick to anger if disrespected, throwing thunderbolts from the heavens. His physique was that of an idealized mature man in the prime of his life. He was bearded, powerful, decisive, prudent and sexually potent. Zeus was notoriously lascivious.

god of earth


Zeus' domain was the sky, and his symbols were the eagle, oak tree, bull and lightning bolt, each of which was associated with strength, fortitude and power. Zeus' power is greater than that of all the other gods. His mother, Rhea, saved him from his father, Cronus. Zeus, who was wise in counsel and command, freed all those imprisoned by Cronus and defeated him, earning the right to be king of the gods. As such, he is a bringer of order and civility.
