"Most hateful to me are you of all gods on Olympus, for ever is strife dear to you and wars and fightings." [Zeus to Ares. Homer, Iliad 5.890]

Ares was the son of Zeus and Hera. He left behind quite a few offspring. Ares wasn't quite as popular in real Greece as on the show. Most of the other gods hated him (except Aphrodite of course...), and he never played by the rules. He was rarely worshipped, and even then only by thugs. Most of his time was spent with women rather than fighting. Although he was father and teacher to many great men.

Ares mated with the following people (now here's an interesting list, he got just about all of them pregnant with arrogant children too...):

  • Aerope
  • Aglaurus
  • Harmonia
  • Astyoche
  • Pyrene
  • Pelopia
  • Aphrodite
  • Cyrene
  • Demonice
  • Aphrodite (Yep again)
  • Astyoche (A different one)
  • Triteia
  • Althaea
  • Demonice (Same one! He went back for more)
  • UNKNOWN (produced Nike, god of victory)
  • UNKNOWN (produced Oeagrus, father of Orpheus, god of music)
  • Harpina
  • Protogenia
  • Atalanta (she had to be on this list!)
  • Dotis
  • Ilia
  • Aphrodite (these two cant keep their hands to themselves!)
  • Demonice ( should I even both to keep listing each time for her?)
  • Tirine
  • Eos (She got cursed by Aphrodite for sleeping with Ares, Eos was DAWN)
