As well as being the god of the Underworld, Hades is also the god of mined wealth and fertile soil. He is the ruler of darkness and the richest one on Earth. He is one of the Big Three and is the most hated by the Olympian Gods. His symbol and weapon of power is the helmet of darkness, which renders him invisible. He is not one of the twelve Olympian Gods, yet he is still very important. His wife is Persephone.
Hera is the queen of the gods and the goddess of marriage. She is the wife of Zeus and is very jealous of Zeus' multiple affairs. For example, when the great hero Hercules was only a baby, Hera sent snakes to his crib because he was the child of Zeus and another woman. Her symbol is the peacock.
When Hephaestus was a baby, his mother, Hera, threw him off the top of a building because he was too ugly. Because of that incident, Hephaestus is a cripple. His consort, Aphrodite frequently leaves him for other gods, specifically Ares. He is a blacksmith.
Demeter is the goddess of agriculture and plantations. She is intimately related with the seasons. When Hades abducted her daughter, Persephone, Demeter was so mad that she laid a curse on all the land, which became fall and winter, when no plants would grow.
One day, Zeus had a terrible headache. He had a dream of a woman weaving beautiful tapestries. That day, Athena sprung out of Zeus's head in full armor, and has no mother. This goddess, just like Artemis, is a virgin, and is also the wisest of all the gods and goddesses.
Zeus, Poseidon, Hades
These three gods are the most powerful gods of all and split the earth between them. The sky went to Zeus, the sea went to Poseidon, and the underworld went to Hades. Zeus', being God of the Sky, symbol of power is his lightning bolt. Poseidon's, being God of the Sea, symbol of power is the trident. Hades', being God of the Underworld, symbol is his helmet of darkness. Only Zeus and Poseidon are Olympian gods; Hades is not. Together, these three rule all the earth and are the gods of all.
Ares is the god of war and is one of Zeus and Hera's children. His symbol of power is his spear and the dog. He is known for his hot temper and ferocity in the battlefield. His frequent lover is Aphrodite. On the battlefield he usually wears a helmet and rides a chariot.
Artemis is the goddess who guides girls up to the age of marriage and Artemis herself is a maiden, who has never been conquered by love. Together she and her brother, Apollo, give sudden death and disease to mortals.
Hermes is the Olympian god of animal husbandry, roads, travel, and hospitality. He is a personal agent and herald, or messenger, to Zeus. He is also known as the helpful god. He has special winged shoes that help him complete his tasks and give messages to other gods and mortals. His symbol is the caduceus.
Apollo is the god of the sun, poetry, healing, prophecies, archery, and music. His symbols are the bow and arrow, and the laurel wreath. He is best known for slaying the Python (Delphi serpent) and he took the spirit of the Oracle Delphi, which he uses to announce important prophecies.
Dionysus was born out of Zeus' thigh, causing him to be immortal. He has a dual personality, one side being joyful and ecstatic, the other side being rage and anger. He is known to drink lots of wine.
Bibliography
Aphrodite is known as the most beautiful goddess of them all. Therefore, in addition to being the goddess of love, she is also the goddess of beauty. Her husband is Hephaestus, though her love affair with Ares is well known. She bore Eros, Phobos, and Deimos with Ares.
