The Almighty: Greek, Part Deux Picture

My first Almighty Greek was a success, but of course it was not without "Oh where is this god?", "Why is he/she not in this?" etc. So this is to my response, a continuation of my first. There still maybe deities I left out an I may never add them in, for either their creation is to hard or I am not a fan, there is over 100s of Greek gods and goddesses. If I don't have them here, then you go and make them :s

First off, some may remember I had Eros in the first Almighty, well what I didn't know, was that there was 5 primordial gods each with a specific dominion in the courtship and love areas. To begin with, of course Eros again, god of sexual desire, was associated with athleticism and was often regarded as the protector of homosexual love between men.
Following him is Anteros god of unrequited love, He punished those who scorned love and the advances of others, and was the avenger of unrequited love.
Next is Himeros, whose dominion is rather confusing, said to be the god of "uncontrollable" sexual desire, but as well as unrequited love.
In some versions of myth, Pothos is the son of Eros, or is portrayed as an independent aspect of him. Yet others called him son of Zephyrus and Iris. He was part of Aphrodite's retinue, and carried a vine, indicating a connection to wine or the god Dionysus. Pothos represents longing or yearning
Lastly we have Hedylogos, who was basically the god of flattery and sweet-talk.

Next is Mnemosyne. Some may have seen my 9 Muses picture, Mnemosyne is the mother of those Muses.

The wind gods are next, the Anemoi
The king of winds, Aeolus
Next is the god of the cold North wind Boreas, and the bringer of winter. His name meant "North Wind" or "Devouring One". Boreas is depicted as being very strong, with a violent temper to match. Pausanias wrote that Boreas had snakes instead of feet, though in art he was usually depicted with winged human feet.
God of the south Wind Notus, He was associated with the desiccating hot wind of the rise of Sirius after midsummer, was thought to bring the storms of late summer and autumn, and was feared as a destroyer of crops.
Greek deity representing the unlucky east wind, Eurus. He was thought to bring warmth and rain, and his symbol was an inverted vase, spilling water. There is extremely little about Eurus.
And lastly the God of the west wind, Zephyrus. He was said to be the husband of his sister Iris, the goddess of the rainbow. He abducted another of his sisters, the goddess Chloris, and gave her the domain of flowers. One of the surviving myths in which Zephyrus features most prominently is that of Hyacinth. Hyacinth was a very handsome and athletic Spartan prince. Zephyrus fell in love with him and courted him, and so did Apollo. The two competed for the boy's love, but he chose Apollo, driving Zephyrus mad with jealousy. Later, catching Apollo and Hyacinth throwing a discus, Zephyrus blew a gust of wind at them, striking the boy in the head with the falling discus. When Hyacinth died, Apollo created the hyacinth flower from his blood.

This is Chione, she was the daughter of Boreas and the nymph or minor goddess of snow.

Erebos, was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod's Theogony places him as one of the first five beings to come into existence from Chaos. Erebus features little in Greek mythological tradition and literature, but is said to have fathered several other deities by Nyx; depending on the source of the mythology, this union includes Aether, Hemera, the Hesperides, Hypnos, the Moirai, Geras, Styx, and Thanatos.

Aether is one of the primordial deities, the first-born elementals. Aether is the personification and elemental god of "the bright, glowing upper air of heaven -– the substance of light". He embodies the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to the normal air breathed by mortals. Like Tartarus and Erebos, Aether may have had shrines in Hella, but he had no temples, and it is unlikely that he had a cult.

I have Harmonia and Eris next, goddesses of Harmony and Discord. According to one account, she is the daughter of Ares and Aphrodite; By yet another account, Harmonia was from Samothrace and was the daughter of Zeus and Electra, her brother Iasion being the founder of the mystic rites celebrated on the island.
The most famous tale of Eris recounts her initiating the Trojan War by causing the Judgement of Paris.

One of the mighty titans, Hyperion was the lord of light, and the Titan of the east.
