History[]

Biology[]

The gods are immune to aging and are in a constant state of good health. Their blood, called ichor, is golden in coloration. The gods live off of ambrosia, a food produced only on Mount Olympus and could formerly transform those who ingested into gods, but this attribute was later removed and no human is allowed to join the ranks of the deities any longer.

The gods have the ability to shift into a divine form, which is the true expression of their magic and accentuates their own power. If a mortal were to behold the divine form of a deity they would die immediately.

Gods are unable to die, but they are susceptible to a process called diminishing, wherein a deity loses their ability to maintain a physical form and becomes unable to interact with the world any longer.

Abilities[]

All gods possess the standard abilities of agelessness, enhanced speed, stamina, strength, and physical allure, the divine form mode, and immunity to all forms of disease. Each god has their own innate power tied to their domain, for example, Zeus being able to manipulate electricity due to his position as God of Weather and Aphrodite being able to detect the emotional bonds between people as Goddess of Love.

Trivia[]

  • The only deities to have universal Hourglass counterparts are Chaos (Magnum Khaios), Phanes (Auruphanes), Gaia (Mamme/Materia), and Akhlys (Verlacula).
  • As with the Egyptian gods, the Greeks lack DNA in the way humans do, and so their incestuous relations are excused.
