The Greek Gods are supreme race of magical beings that possess great magical power and immortality.


In Greek mythology, the gods, also called the Olympians (Δωδεκάθεον), were the principal gods of the Greek pantheon, residing atop Mount Olympus, a forbidden place for any mortal to travel. There were 12 original Olympians, which included: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Ares, Hermes, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, and Hestia (she later gave up her throne for Dionysus). Hades was not included because he resided in his home of the Underworld, barely speaking with any of the gods.

The 12 Olympians gained their supremecy in the world of gods after Zeus led his siblings to victory in the war with the Titans. The original Olympians were: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Hestia, Aphrodite, and Hades. While: Ares, Hermes, Hephaestus, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, the Graces, the Muses, the Fates, the Horae, Heracles, Dionysus, Hebe, and Persephone were the children of Zeus.


The Greek gods are powerful, immortal supernatural beings with a variety of magical powers. In addition to their immortality, all gods share certain powers, and even have unique abilities specific to their individual regions of influence.

  • Immortality: The Olympian gods are immortal and won't die by conventional means. However, periodic consumption of ambrosia is what keeps them healthy.[1]
  • Superhuman Strength: All Olympians possess some degree of superhuman strength.
  • Shapeshifting: The gods can alter their forms at will and to varying degrees.
  • Magical Abilities: The gods can use magic for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, projecting powerful energy blasts, teleportation, shapeshifting, healing others, and granting power to other beings and even objects.


  • Ambrosia: The gods must periodically consume ambrosia to maintain their vigor. Failure to do so causes them to exhibt the symptoms of old age (i.e. crankiness, weakness, and dementia).[1]
