The Ares wiki last edited by RazielWraith on 05/23/14 09:23PM View full history

One of the three children of the supreme Greek Olympian Gods, Zeus and Hera, Ares is the God of War, loving battle for its own sake. Ares never favours one city or party over another, fighting on either side, as inclination prompts him, delighting in the slaughter of men and the sacking of towns. Despite being Zeus' son, Ares never fit in with the other gods of Olympus and created his own realm, the Areopagus. Ares is hated by all his fellow immortals, from Zeus and Hera downward, except for Eris, and Aphrodite, who nurses a perverse passion for him, ultimately bearing his children, Deimos, Phobos, and Harmonia. Recently, through his deceit and manipulations, Ares deposed Hades and became ruler of the underworld.

Powers and Abilities

Ares is the god of war, because of his heritage Ares is immortal and has been around for centuries. Because of his immortality Ares can't be hurt by conventional weapons, but only by magical or divine weapons. As the God of conflict, war and bloodlust, Ares is a master combatant. He has superhuman strength, speed, durability, stamina and senses. Ares also has a genius level intellect and is a master strategist. Because he is the God of War, bloodshed and conflict make Ares stronger and more powerful. Ares has complete control over every weapon, allowing him to wield every weapon with superhuman accuracy and expertise. His trademark blue armor is forged by Hephaestus and is virtually indestructible.

Tactical Analysis

Weaknesses

Ares feeds on the anger, hatred, weaponry, and violence of man-kind, whether they believe in him or not. This works like a psychic battery. The less of these evil traits that are present, the weaker his power. Even the slightest thought of kindness, weakens him, especially if two beings get along with each other. This could greatly nulify his reality alteration.
