POWER and Responsibility
At times Eros was unsympathetic and careless with who he chose to bestow his powers upon, and often caused more pain than joy. Can be affected by his own arrows.
She had less charisma than many of the Greek Goddesses, relying on her gifts to get attention. She was also said to be clumsy.
Defined by her role in life. No distant personality.
The story tells the struggle of love and trust between Eros and mortal princess Psyche. Aphrodite was jealous of the beauty of Psyche so she ordered Eros to make her fall in love with the ugliest man on earth. While at it, instead of shooting the arrow to the man, Eros shot himself, ending with Eros falling for Psyche. One day, due to the visit of Psyche's jealous sisters, she breaks the trust of her husband Eros. Psyche searched the whole world for him but ended requesting help from Aphrodite. Aphrodite set Psyche into a set of difficult tasks but nevertheless they were completed and Aphrodite let Psyche become immortal and live with her husband, Eros.
