The Deities

From In the Pantheon
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Olympians are the major deities of the Pantheon World, though the name denotes the generation that spawned from them, rather than the fifteen it is typically associated with. Their name, Olympians, originates from Mount Olympus, which was their ancestral residence.

The Olympians came into power after dethroning the Titans, which resulted at the end of the great war between the Olympians and the Titans, called the Titanomachy. This council presides over the Assembly of Deities when called.

These Olympian deities include Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, Hestia, and Dionysus.

Though, originally not part of the council, Hades and Persephone, as representatives of the third domain-- the Underworld--have joined in this time of crisis and rebirth.
