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.
