This was not an easy page. First of all, I had to come up with a good design for the great hall. I didn't want to make it just a copy of the geat hall in the palace of the Underworld in "A God Apart From Gods", and that made things a little tricky since that is the typical Mycenaean throne room and the trone room in the palace of Knossos wasn't big and fancy enough.

Themis - Titan goddess of divine law and order and ex-wife of Zeus. Hera doesn't mind that she stays on Olympus as scribe and counsellor.
