Which Greek God Is Your Parent?
Your father is Ares!
Your father is the God of War! It means you are a man made for success, you are wild, and you are a little too dangerous! In your quest for success, no challenge is too great. You will always succeed as a warrior. You often go a little too far, but in the end, you always win!
Your father is Zeus!
Your father is Zeus, the Father of Gods and Men. It means you are a true serial lover. You love women! You are not afraid to engage in risky adventures and challenges. If you need help, there is always your offspring of extraordinary beings to give you a hand or at least your friends... if you have been careful!
Your father is Apollo!
Your father is Apollo, the God of music and art! It means you are a modern man who values knowledge and creativity. You are a moral person, trust and respect are very important to you. People often come to you for advice. You have an incredibly creative mind and you have to express it beautifully whenever you can!
Your father is Dionysus!
Your father is Dionysus, the God of wine and fertility. It means that wherever you go, you inspire people to have fun. Your life is more or less a permanent celebration and there is nothing wrong with that! You don't follow the rules and you don't care about conventions. You are an original being and you encourage others to be original too!
Your father is Hermes!
Your father is the messenger of the gods. It means you are spiritual and creative, and a man who loves to travel the world. Your thirst for the unknown knows no limits! You are gifted with words, a skilled speaker and perhaps even a writer. You love to share and want to leave a meaningful trace of your life wherever you go. You also have a mischievous side that others find surprising!
The Greek pantheon of Mount Olympus stands as one of the most influential groups of gods and goddesses in popular culture, most notably inspiring the premise of the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. Indeed, the series is set in the modern world and revolves around a group of ordinary kids dealing with their Olympian parents.
The Greek gods are all masters of specific elements or aspects of nature. Supreme Zeus, for example, is the hierarch of the pantheon, brandishing lightning bolts and thunderstorms as his weapons. You can bet that he’s big on discipline and raising upright kids. Zeus keeps the worlds of gods and men in order and exacting judgment on mortals who displease him.
His brothers are Poseidon, god of the sea, and Hades, god of the underworld. Poseidon is the perfect father figure for people who enjoy swimming and going to the beach, although watch out for the earthquakes and tsunamis he might cause if he’s mad at you. His trident is sure to come in handy for spearing the last bit of fish from across the dinner table.
The wise and noble Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy, would definitely raise her kids as avid readers that are good at chess. She’s also pretty benevolent, as far as Greek gods go. Her brother, Apollo, had power over light and could see into the future, so it’d be hard to hide secrets from him, literally and figuratively.
If you’re a foodie, there’s also Demeter and Dionysius, although the two are far different from each other. Hard-working Demeter likes farming and brings bountiful harvests, so she’d be an excellent fitness buff and coach if you’re health-conscious. On the other hand, Dionysius would be the extremely laidback dad who’s down with throwing parties and getting drunk on wine on a Tuesday. For his faults, he’s also a good teacher in music and arts.
With an entire pantheon of Olympians, you can expect to find a Greek God or Goddess who’d be your dream parent, someone who embodies your characteristics and could bring out the best in you as their demigod child.
FAQ About Greek Gods
Who are the children of Zeus?
Zeus has fathered a whole lot of other Greek gods and demigods, from the stunningly beautiful Aphrodite to the warhawk Ares. Many of the Pantheon’s denizens claim some sort of familial relation to the God of Thunder, due to his penchant for consorting with other gods and even humans. His children include Apollo, Artemis, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hermes, Persephone and Perseus. Heracles, one of Greece’s greatest mythological heroes, was also Zeus’ son with the mortal Alcmene.
What is Hermes the god of?
Hermes is among the more nebulous of the Greek gods, due to his role as the messenger or herald of Mount Olympus. As he is constantly travelling around the realms to deliver messages from the other gods, he is considered the patron god of emissaries, thieves, and merchants, which are all people who travel a lot as part of their profession. He is the Greek god of trading, fortune, wealth, language, and, of course, travel.
Is Hades evil?
As the god of the underworld, Hades is typically seen in a bad light. However, in Greek mythology, Hades is seen more positively, as the shepherd of all the souls of the deceased and the keeper of peace and balance between the realms of the living and the dead. Hades certainly has his darker moments, such as when he kidnapped Persephone to become his wide, but for the ruler of the afterlife, Hades rules fairly and benevolently.
