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 animosity toward Hades for stealing her beautiful child. She also knows she must give Hades the respect due him as an Olympian. But sometimes a mommy’s gotta do some shady things to keep her baby safe.
+
General Overview: After leaving Olympus, Demeter decided to obtain her Juris Doctorate to practice law for both mortals and immortals.  
 
 
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.

Hello, my sweet little mortals. Isn’t it a beautiful day? I’m just so happy to be here with all of you again.
+
Ahhh yes, I am back, my loves! I know I have been missing for a while, in which I will be able to fill you in about soon. I know I took in a lot of clientele for the GC law office and just kinda left… but you know, it was that time of year that I just needed to get out into nature and stretch my legs for a while.  
 
 
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.
 
  
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.
+
I am sure my children will be most pleased with my return, along with my very devoted executive assistant, Aegis. I do hope Dionysus comes by the OA building soon to bring me some of his fine wine since as you know, I do have a taste for the finer things in life.
  
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!!!
+
So my beautiful mortals, you shall hear more from me soon!

Skills / Abilities

Immortality. Technically immortal. Immune to the effects of aging, cannot die by any conventional means, and is immune to all known mortal diseases and infections. As a deity, they are able to teleport, or "pop" anywhere in the mortal plane with a few exceptions, the God Floors of the GC HQ are mystically protected, so no teleporting to or in between them, anything on the non-mortal plane, i.e., the Underworld, Atlantis, and the Void, are non-accessible without a guide.

Babble-speak. Can communicate in all languages and dialects.

Feast or Famine. As Goddess of Grain and the Harvest, she’s worshiped for giving the gift of growing your own to mankind. Demeter holds the power to give society abundance in their harvest or keep the fields barren for years, leaving entire populations to starve.

Persuasion. As the Goddess of Sacred law, she’s a shrewd negotiator. She knows that though sacred laws cannot be broken, they can be bent to fit any scenario. She has the ability to convince both mortal and god alike, to see her side of an argument.

Limited Shapeshifting. Because she’s spent so many years among the mortals, she feels more comfortable in their form. When among the gods, she wears her immortality with pride.

Possessions

Normal Daily Wear: When she is in the courtroom, she prefers wearing the highest quality of business attire in the best name-brand heels. These will be tailored to her exact measurements.

Alternate Wear: When at home or attending her garden, she still prefers high quality, comfy name-brand clothes. She loves wearing the softest, loose sweaters and yoga pants or jeans.

Magical Artifacts/Weapons:

Lighted Compact – Demeter has a torch that is always lit. A reminder of the months spent searching for her missing daughter. As a way to keep her eternally-lit torch with her, she carries a lighted compact. Though it looks like a typical mirrored compact, the light will shine like a beacon even in the darkest places.

SALAD – SAcred LAw Database. An extensive archival system with access to every law, both mortal and divine, known to have ever existed.
