Adonis, in Greek mythology, is the mortal lover of the goddess Aphrodite, who had him deified after his death.

History

Trapped in the simulation of the Elysium and unable to be with his love, Adonis became the leader of a rebellion against the ruler of the realm, Persephone.[1] It was here that Adonis enlisted the aid of the Keeper, Kassandra, in weakening Persephone's grip on Elysium so that he might ultimately escape.

One of the forts within Elysium was named after Adonis.[1]

Mythology

Jealous over Aphrodite, the god Ares killed Adonis. For this, Ares was imprisoned in a bronze jar by the giant sons of the god Poseidon, the Aloadai Otos and Ephialtes, for thirteen months.[2]

Influence

During the Peloponnesian War, the poet Praxilla wrote a poem about Adonis and his death, calling him "beauty incarnate."[3]

Trivia

  • The term adonis is used to describe a very handsome young man.
  • If Kassandra manages to have Persophone expell Hekate, Adonis will be allowed to leave without harm with Persophone reluctantly seeing his view. Should Hekate be believed over Kassandra, Adonis will have his face blistered and eyes blinded as a result of the rebellion.
