* MommasBoy: Despite having a very rocky start, Hephaestus does seem to love Hera almost as much as Ares. He once interceded in an argument between her and Zeus, for which he was cast off Olympus, and some stories even claim she got him to return to Olympus by gifting him with a regal forge, so he could indulge his forging hobby much closer to his true home.

Goddess of spring, rejuvenation, and youth (especially young women) and Queen of the Underworld. Daughter of Zeus and Demeter, she was abducted (theoretically) by Hades to be his queen. She spends half of the year with her mother and half of it with him. Though not numbered among the Twelve Olympians, she had more Greek worshippers than Ares, and was a major goddess of the Eleusinian Mysteries, alongside Demeter and Hecate. To Romans, she was known as '''Proserpina'''.
