Eris Picture

Eris is the Greek Goddess of Discord and Strife...and she loves it. When Hera and Zeus got married, she wasn't invited. Well, this didn't sit well with Eris and she went anyway. She stole one of the Golden Apples of Immortality that Gaia gave to Hera as a wedding gift and turned it all sour and such. She then tossed the apple towards Athena and Hera and they started to agrue over who was the most beautiful. Hearing this, Aphrodite stepped in and insisted she was the most beautiful so they took it to Zeus. Zeus, having just married Hera and not being an ignorant man said to take the problem to a mortal man, Paris. So they did and Paris suggested they slit the apple in thirds since they are all beautiful, but they would hear nothing of that, they made him pick but each of them offered him a gift to choose her. Athena offered him wisdom, Hera offered Royal power, and Aphrodite offered him the most beautiful (mortal) woman in the world, Helen. (see where this is going?
