Ares by DoroxDoro Ares by DoroxDoro
In Greek mythology, Ares is the son of Zeus and Hera. Though often referred to as the Olympian god of warfare, he is more accurately the god of bloodlust, or slaughter personified.

You're welcome.
You know Ares was well disliked by his parents Zeus and Hera.  The Greeks actually considered him a coward who wanted to fight but would run back to Olympus when he was wounded, so in classical Greek mythology, Ares is more a God of blood lust rather than war.  His counterpart, Mars, on the hand was the actual God of War.

I found it strange that the Greeks at the same time considered him the god of courage.

Really? The God of Courage? Maybe they meant that ironically, like, "there's Ares, the god of courage. Takes an arrow and runs home to Olympus."

Yep, god of manly courage as he gave others courage.


The greeks were not always consistent with their gods.

Lol. I'm sure Ares looked very manly and he did yell orders for soldiers to keep fighting even if he left the battlefield. Point remains the same: Mars and Ares are not the same people. Mars has origins in the Etruscan civilization with Bellona the warrior Goddess before she was replaced by Minerva.

It does take a lot of courage to kill the son of Poseidon (to protect your child from getting raped) knowing the consequence afterward. Talking about this story.
