Zeus

Zeus is the king of the gods, and the wife of Hera, who is also his sister. He was the son of the titan Cronus, is brother of Hades and Posiedon, and is the sister of Hera, Hestia, and Demeter. He is the father of the Fates, the gods Aphrodite, Ares, Eileithyia, Eris, Hebe, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Athena, Melinoe, Pandia, Asraea, and the heroes Hercules, and Perseus, as well as Helen of Troy. An important story about Zeus is the way he killed his father Cronus, and became the king of the gods. He was supposed to be eaten but was instead replaced with a stone by his mother, he then trained and grew up and returned to kill his father, he then released his siblings from the belly of his father and they were now adults.

Posiedon

He is the brother of Zeus, they helped each other in overthrowing their father Cronus. He married Amphirite who was the grandaughter of Oceanus the Titan. He once wanted to marry Demeter but was put off and told to make a pretty animal which soon became the horse. His trident is the most powerful weapon and can go through anything which is perfect for being a ruler of the sea. He is 2nd of Zeus in power and he also can shake the Earth. Only thing is that he has become greedy and has fights with other Gods. He Is considered greedy not only because he is selfish, but owns most of the Earth because he is the ruler of the sea.

Aphrodite

Aphrodite is the god of love and beauty, she was born from Ouranos' genitals, when they were thrown in the sea after being cut off by Cronos. The gods and goddesses as well as various mortals were invited to the marriage of Peleus and Thetis (the eventual parents of Achilles.) Only the goddess Eris, the god of Chaos was not invited, but she arrived with a golden apple inscribed with the word kallistēi ("to the fairest one") which she threw among the goddesses. Aphrodite, Hera and Athena all claimed to be the fairest, and thus the rightful owner of the apple. The goddesses chose to place the matter before Zeus, who, not wanting to favor one of the goddesses, put the choice into the hands of Paris, of Troy, Hera tried to bribe Paris with Asia Minor, while Athena offered wisdom, fame and glory in battle, but Aphrodite whispered to Paris that if he were to choose her as the fairest he would have the most beautiful mortal woman in the world as a wife, and he accordingly chose her. This woman was Helen. The other goddesses were enraged by this and through Helen's abduction by Paris they brought about the Trojan War.    

Hades

He is the god of the dead and shares the name with his domain, he is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon. A interesting story involving Hades is the only story when Hades shows mercy, this is the story of Orpheus. Orpheus, a great player in music, traveled to the underworld to recover his wife, Eurydice. Eurydice was bit by a snake and had died instantly. Touched by Orphues's skill in music, Hades allowed Orpheus to return Eurydice to the land of the living with one condition: that until they reach the surface, he was not allowed to look back to verify if she was behind him. Orpheus agreed; however, he thought that Hades had tricked him and given him the wrong soul. He glanced behind him, thus breaking his promise to Hades and losing Eurydice again, he had to wait until death to be reunited his love again.

Apollo

Apollo is the god of music, poetry, and oracles, his father is Zeus an his sister is Artemis. A story including Apollo is the story of his lover Hyacinth, whom Apollo thought was exceedingly beautiful, the took turns throwing the discus back and forth to impress each other. The boy's beauty caused a feud between Zephyrus, the god of wind, and Apollo, jealous that Hyacinth preferred the radiant archery god Apollo, Zephyrus blew Apollo's discus off course, so as to injure and kill Hyacinth. When he died, Apollo didn't allow Hades to claim the boy; rather, he made a flower, the hyacinth, from his spilled blood.

Hermes

The legend of Hermes says that was born in a cave on Mount Cyllene in Arcadia. Zeus had gotten Maia pregnant in the middle of the night while everyone else was sleeping. Hermes was born at sunrise. Maia wrapped him up in a cloth and fell asleep because she was really tired. That’s when Hermes got free and ran off to where his brother Apollo grazed his cattle. Hermes stole some of his sheep and near the city of Pylos. Before going back to his mother he caught a tortoise and killed it. Using the organs from a stolen cow he wrote a lyre. And so he stared the music. Important people were Maia his mom Zeus his father and Apollo his brother. Hermes is the God of Music, of literature and of poets and athletics.
