MYTHOLOGY MEME | [5/9] GODS & GODDESSES » ARES
Ares was the god of courage, battle-lust, and warfare in greek mythology. He was born the son of Zeus and Hera, and was one of the twelve Olympians of the greek pantheon.

He is considered to be the violent and terrifying aspect of warfare and is often depicted in battle scenes as a destructive force of power.
