    Olympus 

Zeus

The King of the Gods, after defeating his father Cronus for the throne. He has a lot of lovers and children, even though he is married to his sister Hera. He hates his older brother, Hades.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Zeus is usually portrayed as an old bearded man (if still subject to Silver Fox) but is here depicted as a youthful, clean-shaven blond
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: When passing as one of the Oceanides; Zeus looks so good in girl clothing that leaves the Wing Enforcers speechless (for different reasons each) and Coeus comments on his prettiness later on in "A Promise, III".
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: While Zeus' heart will belong to Metis, he appreciates Hera for all she has done for him and tries to be a good husband despite his limits. She is, after all, his sister and the one that agreed to stay by him forever.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: Just like in the original mythology, he's married to his sister, Hera
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Has blond hair and gold eyes.
  • The First Cut Is the Deepest: His biggest issues are a result of his grief over Metis' death and his refusal to forget her memory in order to love again.
  • Good Parents: "Inflammation" shows that Zeus is a laid-back but firm parent. He comforts Hebe and sends her to say to Ares to behave or else he himself will discipline him. A far contrast from Cronus.
  • Jerkass to One: Type I. Despite being a jerk to Hades, he can be very kind to his other siblings and his children. One good example is "Eternal Gift", when Zeus was willing to allow Poseida to be brought back to life so his brother Poseidon wouldn't be depressed.
  • Light Is Not Good: Has the golden lights of his mother Rhea, but does some pretty questionable things in the comic.
  • Love Hurts: It's implied in "Distillation" that his refusal to let go of Metis' memory is what keeps his curse going; all he wanted was to find her again, but all he gained was grief and feelings of emptiness.
  • Mood-Swinger: He can go from bratty to brooding, from serious to flirty and everything in between from one scene to the other.
  • Really Gets Around: He's Zeus, after all, but there is a good reason for this: he was cursed by Gaia to see his dead lover Metis in every woman, and his lust causes him to lose control and go after them.
  • Shock and Awe: His weapon is the thunderbolt. "A Promise III" really shows this power off.
  • Split Personality: Zeus has one, result of Gaia's curse.
  • The Kingslayer: Killed his father, Cronus, to get the throne.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Gaia declared in "A Promise" that Zeus only thinks he loves Metis because she was the first one he had sex with and he liked how she made him feel, implying that Zeus confuses love with lust and can't understand its emotional deepness. The curse she placed on him exploits this by making him chase an illusion of the one that "makes him feel" to only feel empty at the end, making him unwilling to form any significant bond with any of his lovers.

Hera

The Queen of the Gods, after marrying her brother Zeus. The short story "Will" is about her decision to marry Zeus.
  • Abusive Parent: To poor Hephaestus. Though she had her reasons, it still doesn't change the fact that she imprisoned her own son.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: To Zeus, her brother/husband. Again, it's accurate in regards to the original mythology.
  • The Caretaker: Hera used to take care of little Thetis, until one day Thetis returned to the sea in order to take her role as leader of the Nereids. Hera's flashback show Thetis saying that she was like a mother to her.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Even before she married him, she was this for Zeus. In "Will", Poseidon said that she scared all the nymphs away from Olympus when the rumors of Zeus looking for a wife started to spread.
  • Determinator: In "Will", she vowed to stay with Zeus in order to help him deal with his curse and teach him how to love.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: After getting married, Hera has forbidden Zeus of apologizing for his cheating, because she feels like he's piting her.
  • Friend to All Children: Hera seems to have a soft spot for little girls, as she's seen taking care of both Tethis and Hebe.
  • The High Queen: Regal, poised and stern but caring.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: For Zeus. Because she was the only one who truly loves him, she decided to marry him in order to be there for him when he is overtaken by his curse.
  • Maternally Challenged: In "Inflammation", Hera's flashback shows that she doesn't consider herself mother material, and that such thing is more adept for someone nurturing, like Demeter.
  • Parental Substitute: For Thetis, whom she practically raised
  • Requisite Royal Regalia: On promotional material, Hera is portrayed wearing her regal clothing.
  • Tsundere: Hera is a "Harsh" type as she keeps a detached and stern face to the public eye and only allows herself to be more sweet towards certain people, and always in private. It takes Zeus pushing the right buttons to make her flustered, something which he finds cute.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Hera basically imprisioned Hephaestus because she was fearing for his life after hearing Thetis' prophecy. While her intentions were good, it doesn't take away the fact that she was an abusive mom towards her son.

Athena

Goddess of wisdom, Zeus' firstborn daughter and child of Metis. "Distillation" tells the story of her birth.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • The Consigliere: Zeus goes to her whenever he needs advice. "Distillation" reveals this was her birth's purpose.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She can get snippy with her father and king.

  • The Stoic: Athena barely shows emotion because she considers it unnecessary.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Zeus describes her eyes as "the most calming and mysterious eyes".

Hermes

  • Fragile Speedster: Incredibly fast but doesn't seem to have any offensive prowess.
  • Mercury's Wings: He has two little wings coming out of his head. A sketch reveals he got them from his grandmother Pleione.
  • Sugary Malice: He's in charge of getting people through Olympus. Thing is, Zeus must give his approval first, and if he does not, Hermes will smile and guide you to an endless labyrinth for you to die. Nothing Personal, though, it's just his job.
  • Those Two Guys: He's mostly seem alongside Apollo in "Sunny".
  • Trickster God: Zeus mentions in "Inflammation" that little Hermes likes to cause mischief when bored. With Apollo being a regular victim.

Apollo

God of the arts and the sun, thanks to being attendant of the sun Titan Helios, and Artemis' twin. "Sunny" tells the story of him and a girl that worships him, even in modern times.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: He and Eros don't get along. Accurate to mythology too.
  • Twincest: Again, Implied to be the case with him and Artemis.
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal: Helios revealed to the other Sun gods that Apollo was a boy by flashing his bare chest to them. Apollo complains Helios should at least gave him a warning about it.

  • Genki Girl: Aphrodite is a very hype girl.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Her genki-ness is turned up to eleven when she's drunk, as seen in "A Promise, III".
  • The Pornomancer: As the goddess of lust, it's a given that everyone has a thing for her. "Inflammation" demostrates it by little Hermes' innocent Precocious Crush on her and then Hephaestus (already a young man) unknowingly getting under her influence and sexually assaulting her.
  • Rape as Drama: Hephaestus touching her let her shaking and terrified, but she was actually more horrified with the realization that she enjoyed it.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Promotional art has Aphrodite more often than not completely nude, with only Godiva Hair to cover her.
  • Shipper on Deck: While getting people to fall in love is Eros' department, Aphrodite is very passionate about people getting together in order for them to get into the "next step".

  • Kissing Under the Influence: After incapacitating Aphrodite, he was unknowingly caught in her influence and sexually assaulted her. He even was horrified on how he was unable to stop himself.

  • Elemental Shapeshifter: She literally is the fire of her temple's hearth.
  • The Gadfly: Loves to troll her siblings, usually by exploiting her powers to know their secrets.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her position as the goddess of home might sound lame, but actually she's a very important presence in Olympus. Those that manage to convince Zeus to be worthy of serving in the palace actually have to go to her first of all so she can give her blessing, or in other words, use her power to know if they mean any ill will towards the gods.
  • Psychic Powers: "Inflammation" reveals she either has post-cognitionnote  or mind reading powers. This way she's the first to discover that Hephaestus is Hera's child.

    The Sea Palace 

Poseidon

The King and God of the Sea, and the brother of Hades, Hestia, Demeter, Hera, and Zeus. He is married to the Nereid Amphitrite and "Eternal Gift" is about their love story.
  • Affectionate Nick Name: Zeus calls Poseidon "Po".
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Not between good and evil, but between his brothers Zeus and Hades, who has light and dark powers respectively. As the middle brother, he must keep them in balance or there would be chaos once again.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He's revealed to possess the ability to manipulate the ground and Iapetus says he inherited Gaia's power. Still, this power is only secondary and he doesn't used as often as his water powers.
  • Emotional Powers: In Eternal Gift, Delphin discusses this by telling Poseidon that when he is happy, the sea is calm, and when he's angry, it won't be.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Probably the one of the most easygoing and friendly gods, but if you hurt the person he loves...not even innocent humans will be spared from his wrath.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Poseidon was in love with Demeter, but he knew that she loved and was loved by Hades. Then he met Amphitrite.
  • Light-Haired Swimmer: His hair is light blue, and sometimes even looks white in some art, and he is the King of the Sea.
  • Making a Splash: A staple of being the God of the Sea. He shows off this power in Eternal Gift.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: Poseidon felt quite dull compared to Hades (his father's favorite) and Zeus (the new baby) and was concerned with his hair color, which was different from his parents' unlike Hades and Zeus. Rhea calms him down over it saying that because of his brothers' differences, he needs to be the mediator between them and then indirectly reveals that he's her favorite.
    Rhea: It's just that Poseidon's hair color is mother's favorite.
  • Nice Guy: While Zeus is kinda of a Jerk with a Heart of Gold and Hades is Troubled, but Cute, Poseidon is an unambiguous nice guy.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills
  • The Slacker: Skips work a lot, causing his assistant Delphin a lot of distress.

Amphitrite

The Sea's Queen and wife to Poseidon.
  • Came Back Strong: She used to be a mortal girl, Poseida, but after her dead she was brought back as an immortal Nereid.
  • Cool Crown: Amphitrite's pearl circlet. In "Eternal Gift" is revealed it's the proof of the Seas' Queen, so Poseidon giving it to her is an indirect marriage proposal.
  • Godiva Hair: Amphitrite's only coverage are a few scales and her very long hair.
  • Second Love: Poseidon was mooping over his unrequited feelings for Demeter, and then he met her as Poseida; he fell in love instantly.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Poseida is revealed to be half-human when she died.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Amphitrite initially considered Poseidon to be too good for her, after all he's kind, handsome, divine, etc.
  • Secret Legacy: She was born as a human but her father was the former Sea god, Nereus.
  • Sirens Are Mermaids: Subverted. Amphitrite is pretty much a mermaid (and in side art, she's drawn with a fish tail, to boot) but she's actually tone deaf and a horrible singer. Even the Muses' instructor, Apollo, couldn't help her and he had to made up the whole "you sing better underwater" to avoid her singing disturb land and Olympus. But now, the underwater realm have to suffer her.
  • Unusual Ears: Amphitrite, unlike fellow nereid Thetis, has scale ears instead of Pointy Ears. Must be result of being a hybrid.

Delphin

Prince of dolphins and Poseidon's long suffering attendant.
  • Afraid of Blood: Delphin, being the prince of dolphins, is a pacifist creature and the mere smell of blood is enough to knock him down.
  • Master of Illusion: "Eternal Gift" reveals he can create minor mirages.
  • Married to the Job: Delphin seems to be a Celibate Hero thanks to being the only one who does any sort of work in the Sea Palace.

Prometheus

Former blacksmith of the gods, making him Hephaestus' predecessor. A Titan with the power of foresight.
  • Almighty Janitor: Zeus' children seemed to be unaware that their father's blacksmith is actually a Titan, as Ares and Hebe were surprised of seeing the Mark of Titans on Prometheus' forehead.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: First seen in "Distillation", where he helped with Athena's birth.

Bia

The representation of Force. Bia is a, goal-focused woman that never fools around but has a soft spot for her siblings.

Kratos

The representation of Power, Kratos is a strong but easily irritable man. He's a sort of mentor for Zeus and the one closer to the king.

Nike

The youngest of the Winged Enforcers and the representation of Victory, she's the most valuable of them as she's able to grant absolute victory to whoever she sings for. Mostly seen in the form of an eagle on Athena's shoulder.
  • Animal Motifs: Nike is compared to a bird. Her singing grants victory to whoever she sings for and can take the form of an eagle. When captured by Cronus, she was referred as a caged bird.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Even before being given to Athena, Nike considered the young goddess to be her favorite.
  • Distressed Damsel: She was kept captive by Cronus in order to "keep victory" in his hands.
  • Noble Bird of Prey: When she was given to Athena by Zeus, she became an eagle and "Inflammation" shows why she's the goddess of victory and a Winged Enforcer.
  • The Voiceless: Nike is an interesting case. While she can talk, her voice is inaudible for other people except her siblings, who sometimes talk for her. She's not mute however and her singing is her trademark.

    The Protogonoi 

Gaia

The primordial mother and the embodiment of Earth.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the planet Earth. Waist-up, she takes the form of a beautiful woman but she's literally melted to the ground from below the waist.
  • Berserk Button: Her will being defied and/or being disrespected in any way will grant you her ire.
  • The Chessmaster: Borderlining in Manipulative Bitch. Gaia often uses her powers to move things to match her will. For the sake of making things more interesting.

  • The Lifestream: Gods, when they die, don't go to Hades like the mortals, but return to Gaia, the original mother.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: Gaia is the only shown Protogonoi and she calls herself the mother of every living creature, because she is the very Earth itself.
  • Tsundere: Towards Uranus. She's quite bitter that Uranus doesn't seem to appreciate her, but that just makes his little rare gestures of affection all the more powerful on her. The author jokes that Hera got the "tsundere power" from her.
    "Well, [Uranus is] obviously my sky. And I...uh...l-lo...like...I DON'T HATE HIM!"

Uranus

The primordial father and the embodiment of Sky. The husband of Gaia.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the sky. His body is also made out of sky as well to notch this.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Something as little as holding Gaia's hand is a big deal of a gesture for both of them. He's constantly seeing every little thing Gaia does and cares a lot for her, he's just not very good at expressing it.
  • Disappeared Dad: Uranus is the only important god that is never mention in the series despite being the significant primordial father. Heck even Eros made his appearance in spite of being a minor Protogonoi.
  • Emotionless Boy: Wordof God revealed that Uranus was aloof and emotionless, and he considered Gaia being by his side was a given and something completely natural.

Thetis

The leader of the Nereids that took care of Hephaestus until he grow up, she seems to be connected to Hera in some way. First introduced in "Inflammation".

  • Parental Substitute: A better caretaker to Hephaestus than Hera was.
  • Pointy Ears: Unlike fellow nereid Amphitrite, who has Unusual Ears.
  • Seers: Hera's flashback reveals she has the gift of prophecy, and whenever she declares one she enters into a sort of trance, making her uncapable of remembering what she herself said...or so Hera thought. Thetis does remember her prophesy, and told it in front of Hephaestus just to spite Hera.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Her prophecy scared Hera so much that she hid Hephaestus' existence to prevent its fulfillment, and pushed Hera to basically imprision and psycologically abuse her own son.
  • Woman Scorned: A variation. When Hera makes it look like she hates Thetis, Thetis is so heartbroken that she shows her true colors to rub salt on Hera's wounds.
