Aphrodite Rose..~

Post  Innocent_ox on Fri Jun 25, 2010 10:21 am

Name~ Aphrodite Rose
Nickname[s]~ Rose
Age~ Appears 18
Gender~ Female
Species~ Goddess
Hometown~ Olympus

Appearance~ Aphrodite has long perfect blonde hair than falls down to her waist in beautiful ringlets. She has stunning, beautiful blue eyes that are the perfect colours of the bright oceans. They have a natural happy sparkle that twinkle like the sparkling stars in a beautiful night’s sky at night, and feminine, delicate features. She has a beautiful yet flirty smile, high cheek bones, and soft, pale skin. She has a figure to die for- hourglass. She has a slim, slender and sexy figure that captures everyone’s eye when she walks by.

Personality~ Aphrodite is how you all know her to be; a flirt. She only has to walk past a man and he’s instantly attracted to her, but she can’t help that. Sometimes it gets on her nerves a little knowing basically every man desires her. What she really wants is true love, the fluttery feeling that feels like butterflies in your stomach.

Another side to her would be one people don’t know that much about. She is a really caring, sweet young woman. She’d never leave someone that needed to help to just get on with it, and strongly disagrees with wars and violence. She hates people getting hurt and she’ll always stick up for the people she loves, and would be willing to die for them. She is a very trustworthy person, and she hopes that doesn’t turn out to disobey her.

Another one of her talents is music. She has a beautiful voice, which sounds like an angel when she sings. She loves to write songs, and she finds it helps her a lot when she’s feeling down or hurt about something. It’s like she can dissolve into another world she creates herself, or even plunge into the real world and really try to figure it out. She finds it easier to get her opinion and feelings out through song, and really connects with music when it relates to her feelings.

Background~ According to Hesiod, she was born when Uranus (the father of the gods) was castrated by his son Cronus. Cronus threw the severed genitals into the ocean which began to churn and foam about them. From the aphros ("sea foam") arose Aphrodite, and the sea carried her to either Cyprus or Cythera. Hence she is often referred to as Kypris and Cytherea. Homer calls her a daughter of Zeus and Dione.
After her birth, Zeus was afraid that the gods would fight over Aphrodite's hand in marriage so he married her off to the smith god Hephaestus, the steadiest of the gods. He could hardly believe his good luck and used all his skills to make the most lavish jewels for her. He made her a girdle of finely wrought gold and wove magic into the filigree work. That was not very wise of him, for when she wore her magic girdle no one could resist her, and she was all too irresistible already. She loved gaiety and glamour and was not at all pleased at being the wife of sooty, hard-working Hephaestus.
Aphrodite loved and was loved by many gods and mortals. Among her mortal lovers, the most famous was perhaps Adonis. Some of her sons are Eros, Anteros, Hymenaios and Aeneas (with her Trojan lover Anchises). She is accompanied by the Graces.
Her festival is the Aphrodisiac which was celebrated in various centers of Greece and especially in Athens and Corinth. Her priestesses were not prostitutes but women who represented the goddess and sexual intercourse with them was considered just one of the methods of worship. Aphrodite was originally an old-Asian goddess, similar to the Mesopotamian Ishtar and the Syro-Palestinian goddess Ashtart. Her attributes are a.o. the dolphin, the dove, the swan, the pomegranate and the lime tree.
