Personal Information

General Overview: The God of Hate & Jealousy, he is the illegitimate son of Aphrodite and Ares, though he was tossed to Tartarus and raised by his Uncle, Hades, by Aphrodite with little explanation. He learned healing through his friend Asclepius when he was Guardian of Lamark, but was later ordered by Hades to destroy the city and kill all inhabitants, which he did. It was later revealed by Aphrodite to Eros, that Dinlas and Eros, were actually twins, as Hate and Love are often two sides of the same coin.

Deity Nicknames: Din

Likes: Dinlas is very organized, almost OCD. His residential, as well as workspaces, are neat and orderly with a place and purpose for everything he possesses.

Dislikes: Arrogance or boastfulness. Messy, disorganized, or cluttered spaces or situations.

Flaws/Weakness

Seed of Jealousy. Dinlas feels like he is always in a competition with his brothers, Phobos and Deimos, specifically when around Ares, his father. As self-contained and independent as Dinlas presents himself, some part of him still longs for acceptance and validation.

Seed of Hate. Dinlas refuses to have anything to do with his mother, Aphrodite. He doesn’t have Mommy Issues, thank you. That would require a mother.

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.

Mother Tongue. As the bridge between the mortal world and the divine, they speak all languages mortals do, even the long dead ones.

WYSIWYG. What You See Is What You Get. Dinlas appears the same and does not shift form or shape. Hate always appears the same. Because he remains constant in a shifting world of deceptions and perceptions, Dinlas can typically tell instinctively when someone is attempting to deceive him.

Battle Wound Healing. Dinlas was once the Guardian of the city of Lamark, where wounded warriors were healed. There he learned healing from the master healer, Asclepius himself. Though Dinlas cannot heal disease, he can heal any wound received in battle through both magical and physiological means. The use of the magical aspect of these healing skills does present a drain on Dinlas’ energy, while the physiological does not.

Hand-Eye Coordination. Dinlas has impeccable hand-eye coordination. When shooting he rarely, if ever, misses. That also applies to his ability to avoid damage. It carries over into everyday life in any sort of games or skills that require excellent hand-eye coordination.

Personal Attire

Normal Daily Wear: Black suit – White shirt buttoned up, vest, black suit coat, black tie, no tie. He wears his sunglasses as often as possible. May occasionally dress down (e.g. no coat, no vest). (see also, Void Armor below).

Magical Artifacts/Weapons

None.

Historical Synopsis

Dinlas is the illegitimate son of Aphrodite and Ares, and twin brother to Eros, The God of Love. Aphrodite rejected him and cast him out of Olympus. Some say because he was the only male, god or mortal, that she seemed unable to manipulate, even as a child. Others say his hate and anger were simply too incompatible with her nature. He ended up in The Underworld where his Uncle Hades took pity on him and let him stay there. Dinlas grew up angry and alone. In time Hades realized the anger and hate in him so he sent him to the mortal world to be the Guardian of Lamark. Lamark was an ancient city where warriors would go to heal after battle. Dinlas grew to love the city and was close to Asclepius one of the chief healers.

When Ares, his father, discovered the city he was angry. He felt true warriors should die in battle. He went to Dinlas and tempted him with promises of riches and land if Dinlas would turn on the city. Dinlas was tempted and he went to Hades who let him take Cerberus back to Lamark. Between the two of them, they destroyed the city. As the city lay in ruins, Ares was pleased, Hades too, since he had received many souls. Ares then reneged on his promise to Dinlas. At that point, fear and dread ruled the lands and he turned over the spoils of war to his twins Phobos and Deimos. Dinlas had done the deed, killed all the people including his friend Asclepius, and was left with nothing. Dinlas the Guardian was dead, Dinlas the God of Hate was born.[1][2]
