= Personal Information =

General Overview: Demeter is the eternal mother. She loves her babies, dotes on those closest to her and is always ready to bake you a pie. Demeter believes her daughter, Persephone, to be innocence personified. When it comes to her precious baby, she’ll do whatever has to be done in order to ‘protect’ her. She holds an animosity toward Hades for stealing her beautiful child. She also knows she must give Hades the respect due him as an Olympiad. But sometimes a mommy’s gotta do some shady things to keep her baby safe.

Demeter is just a little country girl. She loves the sound of wind in the wheat fields and the smell of rain in the air. Why, she’d just as leave sit on the porch and have a glass of tea with you. She prefers the company of mortals over gods, as mortals live a more humble way of life. She also has an eye for a hard-working, sweaty man toiling in the fields.

She’s agreed to take on the job of becoming the Attorney to the Gods. As her brethren seek their way into the 21st century, she looks to ancient writings to find a way to merge the two into one.

= Introduction =

Hello my sweet little mortals. Isn’t it a beautiful day? I’m just so happy to be here with all of you again. 

I’ve been summoned by our illustrious leader, Zeus. (Or as I like to call him, Baby Brother). He thinks it’s time we all come back and fix the wrongs you mortals have done over the years. The truth is, I’ve never left your side. I’m always here to ensure the fields are plowed, the seed is sown and the cycle of life continues. If only I could keep my precious baby from having to descend to “the spa” three months out of the year.

I’ve agreed to this little PR campaign because I feel more comfortable around you mortals. I love the feel of the earth beneath my feet. I crave the smell of the air after a rainstorm. And I enjoy watching the sweat roll of the backs of all those hard-working men in the fields. Earth Mommy likes.

Zeus did say, that in order for this to work, we gods must get jobs. What? I get that we deities don’t fit in the way we used to, but a job? Come on, Baby Brother. I, for one, will NOT be working for anyone else, especially a mortal. No offense, my sweet babies, but it is what it is.

My first thought was to open up a diner. You know, one of those little places with lacy curtains and checkered table-cloths. But seems Baby Brother had other ideas. As Goddess of Sacred Law, it’s my duty to ensure that everyone, gods and mortals alike, adhere to the rules of the cosmos. And though they cannot be broken, rules can always be bent. I have agreed to take on the position of OA Legal Counsel. I’m sure as my brethren find their way back into the mortal world, there’ll be a few messes for me to clean up.

Hello, my sweet little mortals. Isn’t it a beautiful spring day? The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and my lovely daughter is once again by my side (no thanks to that trifling little fire-farting, son-in-law of mine). I am so happy to once again be here with all of you.

I’ve been summoned by our illustrious leader, or as I like to call him, “Baby Brother”, to come back down and help fix all the wrongs he claims you mortals have done. The truth is, I’ve never left your sides. I am always here to ensure the fields are plowed, the seeds are sewn, and the cycle of life continues. If only I could keep my precious little girl from having to descend to “the spa” three months out of the year.

I’ve agreed to this PR campaign only because I feel more at home among you mortals. I love the feel of the earth beneath my feet. I crave the smell of the air after a mighty rainstorm. And I love to watch the sweat roll off the naked backs of all those hard-working field hands. Earth Mommy likes!

Zeus did say that in order for this to work, we gods are required to get jobs. What? Okay, I get that we don’t quite fit in the way we used to, but jobs? Come on, baby brother. I will NOT be working for anyone else, especially a mortal. Nothing personal, but it is what it is. I’ve decided to open my own restaurant. I mean, seriously, I AM the goddess of the harvest. Who knows food better than me? Trust me, I’ve seen that thing you all call a cooking channel and some of the things you people do with food is appalling.

I’ve also heard rumors that my younger sister, Hera, wasn’t exactly happy about my coming on board. After all, Zeus was once my husband too. However, the only good thing that came out of that union was my sweet baby girl, Persephone. So don’t worry, Little Sister, that booger-eating mama’s boy is all yours.

So come along, my sweet little mortals. You all look hungry and like any good mother, I need to get you something to eat. Here, let me pour the wine. Wait, where’s my wine. I just had a bottle…Damn it Dionysis, bring me back my bottle!!!
