Post subject:  The "Top Twelve" list of Greek Myths

I found this link on the list of gods and goddesses of greek mythology. The Greeks didn't have a "Top Ten" list of deities - but they did have the "Top Twelve" - those lucky deities living on top of Mount Olympus.

These characters are available for play.
The ones in red are taken

Aphrodite - Goddess of love, romance, and beauty. Her son was Eros, god of Love (though he is not an Olympian.)

Apollo - Beautiful god of the sun, light, medicine, colonization and music. Brother to Artemis.

Ares - Dark god of war who loves Aphrodite.

Artemis - Independent goddess of the hunt, the forest, wildlife, childbirth, and the moon. Sister to Apollo.

Athena - Daughter of Zeus and goddess of wisdom, war, and crafts.

Demeter - Goddess of agriculture and mother of Persephone (again, her offspring is not considered to be an Olympian.)

Hephaestus - Lame god of fire and the forge. Sometimes spelled Hephaistos. The Hephaestion near the Acropolis is the most beautifully preserved ancient temple in Greece. Mated to Aphrodite.

Hera - Wife of Zeus, protector of marriage, familiar with magic.

Hermes - The speedy messenger of the gods, god of business. The Romans called him Mercury.

Hestia - Calm goddess of home and home life, symbolized by the hearth which holds the continually-burning flame.

Poseidon - God of the sea, horses, and of earthquakes.

Zeus - Supreme lord of gods, god of the sky, symbolized by the thunderbolt.
