Like all others, the Greek faction is composed of gods, demi-gods and heroes, be they immortals or simple humans. Under the authority of Zeus, god of the sky, eleven other gods known collectively as the Olympians dwell in Olympus, since their collective victory against Cronus. Yet, his return has undermined all factions confidence in Zeus’ leadership, incapable as he was to prevent Asgard’s destruction. The Olympians are therefore on their own for now, facing other pantheons distrust or flat-out hostility, eager to prove their worth again with the help of the new Chaos-empowered gods.

Olympian gods

Name Description
Aphrodite Though generally considered primarily as the goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite should not be mistaken for a helpless white dove. She is famous for her wrath against those who crossed her one way or another, and the list is long...
Apollo Depicted as a beardless youth, Apollo is the god of music, prophecy and healing. He is also the one fighting evil through light, and therefore often seen as the sun itself. Yet, Apollo, along with his twin sister Artemis, could be a god of death through disease.
Ares Ares is the god of war, martial prowess and battle lust. He is less identified by his physical features than his soldier outfit, being all directed towards fighting, as demonstrated by all the famous battles in which he took part. Even though Ares could be mistaken for a blood crazed warrior, he is in fact also a strong promoter of order in the society.
Artemis Artemis is the goddess of wilderness, wild animals and hunting. She is also reputed for protecting children, from birth to adulthood. Yet, being often depicted with a hunting bow, she can just like her twin brother Apollo be a bringer of death.
Athena Being the goddess of wisdom and craftmanship, one could consider Athena a peaceful member of the Olympians, but her outfit composed of a helmet, spear, shield and aegis cape clearly shows she is not defenseless. In fact, Athena is also the patron of heroism and strategy at war.
Dionysus Dionysus is the god of wine, and is unsurprisingly linked to vegetation, partying and pleasure. This is why he is often seen with a drinking cup and a troop of wood creatures, particularly satyrs.
Hades After overthrowing the Titans, Hades was not lucky when receiving his domain, so he became the ruler of the underworld, even though not Death itself. His main objective is to increase the number of his subjects, and he will obviously favour anyone spreading death across the Earth.
Hephaestus God of fire, metal and stoneworking, Hephaestus is rather peaceful, mostly limping around his forge to create the marvellous weapons and items his volcanic workshop is famous for.
Hera Hera is the goddess of women, marriage and childbirth. As Zeus’ wife, she is unsurprisingly also a goddess of the starry skies, depicted with a royal port and queenly staff and crown. Her relationship with Zeus is famous for being filled with unfaithfulness and vengeance.
Hermes As the god of travel, Hermes is in fact associated to everything close to it, like: animal husbandry, roads, language and messengers, astrology and astronomy, physical health but also the less savoury sides of thievery, persuasion and cunning. He is Zeus’ own messenger, famous for his winged boots that allows him fast travel.
Poseidon He is the god of the seas, rivers but also has a darker side as being responsible for floods, drought ans earthquakes. He is famed for his dark beard and trident.
Zeus God of the sky and ruler of Olympus. He is the personification of natural phenomena, particularly those happening in the sky. Therefore, he also stands as the paragon of the state ruler.
