I started following a TUMBLR account for an animation project called "God School". Unfortunately it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. Not only was I hoping that it would turn out to be an actual show someday (like EAH or MH), it focused on the Olympians themselves, not their children. So, I went through many websites and recorded the names of lesser known gods and goddesses, the children fo the Olympians and the like, and think it would be way cool to draw them and think up stories for them as if they went to a high school for god-training! Meet the students of Olympus High!
Angelia – Daughter of Hermes and Dryope – Goddess of messages. www.theoi.com/Olympios/HermesF… Ref: Angelia And Pan V.2
Sweet, with a curiosity that could kill any cat, and a thirst for gossip so strong she often forgets to check her facts before reporting on it. Angelia runs the Grecian Gossip Gazette, the most popular news-scroll at Olympus High. She absolutely adores her little brother, Pan, and Gods help you if you make fun of his cute little goat feet within earshot of Angelia! Is she perhaps overcompensating?
Apollo – Son of Zeus and Hera – Twin of Artemis – God of the sun/prophecies. Ref: Apollo And Artemis V.2
Several decades (some say centuries) ago, Apollo got himself and his twin sister Artemis expelled from Olympus High. After some serious trouble, the terrible twosome were sent back to finish high school, or else their father, Zeus, will never let them be full gods again. Apollo is smug, a major playboy, obnoxious, and absolutely full of himself. Sure, he gets good grades, and sure, he's on his school's Olympic team, but he's still not the Golden Boy he thinks he is. That being said, he does feel bad that he keeps getting his sister in trouble, even if she does provoke him sometimes.
Artemis – Daughter of Zeus and Hera - Twin of Apollo – Goddess of the hunt/moon. Ref: Apollo And Artemis V.2
Several decades (some say centuries) ago, Apollo got himself and his twin sister Artemis expelled from Olympus High. After some serious trouble, the terrible twosome were sent back to finish high school, or else their father, Zeus, will never let them be full gods again. Artemis is athletic, hot tempered, haughty, and teensie bit narrow-minded. She loves animals, is a dedicated vegan, thinks boys are the pits, and, along with her brother, is the star of the school's Olympic team. She finds her brother to be the single most annoying deity to ever reign, although, she does show to have a soft spot for him, and often intervenes when she thinks he's about to get hurt.
Até – Younger Daughter of Eris – Goddess of mischief, delusion, ruin, and folly. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/At%C3%AB
Pranks are her passion! Confuse, don't abuse is her motto. Sometimes she gets a bit carried away, but she is usually easily distracted and appeased. Emotion reigns in her brain, and therefore her state of mind effects the potency of her pranks.
Dysnomia – Older Daughter of Eris – Goddess of lawlessness. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysnomia…
Sophistication and organized crime is what Dysnomia lives for. Childish pranks are a waste of time in her opinion, and only long lasting damage will do to satisfy this edgy perfectionist. Emotion has no place in the pursuit of true chaos. But I guess that's the difference between a freshman like Até and a senior, such as herself.
Deimos – Son of Aphrodite and Ares - Twin of Phobos – God of terror.
When something goes terribly, horribly, wrong at Olympus high, you can bet that Deimos and Phobos have something to do with it. The calmer of the two, Deimos strikes terror into the hearts of the students. Deimos is more than happy to go along with his brother's schemes, and the only thing to come between them is their absolute obsession with Dysnomia.
Erichthonius – Adopted Son of Athena – Mortal – Destined to be king of Athens. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erichtho…
As the mortal adopted child of the goddess of Wisdom, Erichthonius (or "Eric", as he prefers to be known) knows his future is a bright one, despite always being the odd one out no matter where he goes. He's too godlike to be like other mortals, and he's too mortal to be like the other gods. His mother, harsh but loving Athena, tries to assure him that despite his differences he's gonna be a great leader, but Eric's self confidence is always a roller coaster of ups-and-downs.
Eros – Son of Aphrodite and Ares – Twin of Himeros – God of love.
Heart-throb of Olympus high, everyone who meets Eros falls head-over-heels in love with him. Maybe it's his looks, his relaxed demeanor,, or maybe, just maybe, it's his innate magical attraction that he's had since birth. Ironically, he doesn't know what real love feels like. Well, except for brotherly love.
Himeros – Son of Aphrodite and Ares – Twin of Eros – God of desire.
Unlucky in love, despite being just as handsome as his twin, Himeros falls in love way too easily with almost everyone he meets, but it's never reciprocated. He spends most of his time pining over lost love. Luckily he always has his brother, Eros, to comfort him in his constant state of heartbreak, even if Himeros is often very jelous.
Macaria – Older Daughter of Hades and Persephone – Goddess of the Blessed death en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaria
Have you ever been so stressed out and depressed that you stopped being able to emote alltogether? Well, that's what Macaria is like all day, everyday. She's your basic gloomy gus, nicknamed "Miss Misery" by basically everyone. Outside she's apathetic and miserable, but inside she's a swirling vortex of anxiety and stress. Try as they might, no one can cheer up poor Miss Misery.
Melinoe – Younger Daughter of Hades and Persephone – Goddess of nightmares and madness. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melinoe
Mad as a hatter, in a cheerfully psychotic way, Melinoe is nothing like her gloomy sister. She has a warped sense of good and bad, taking compliments as insults, and insults as compliments. As her best friend (or worst fiend, depending on whose point of view your taking) Até likes to say, there's a method to Melinoe's madness, you just have look for it.
Pan – Son of Hermes and Dryope –Goat-footed god of shepherds/the wild. www.theoi.com/Olympios/HermesF… Ref: Angelia And Pan V.2
Hippie-dippy, and a bit of a space case, Pan feels more than a little out of place, as his Dryad of a mother's genes caused him to have goat feet! He's very self conscious about his appearance around his classmates, but out in nature, with his animal friends and his beloved plants, he feels right at home. He knows that he is loved by his older sister, Angelia, but he gets jelous sometimes, because she looks completely normal! But is she?
Peitho – Daughter of Aphrodite and Ares – Twin of Pothos - Goddess of persuasion.
Peithos knows what she wants and how to get it! Unafraid to use her femenine wiles that she, thankfully, inherited form her dear mother, manipulating those of both sex is easy peasy lemon squeezy! Well, except when it comes to Apollo. She can't anywhere with him! It pisses her off! She hates it when things don't work out for her! Spoiled rotten is a bit of an understatement.
Pothos – Son of Aphrodite and Ares – Twin of Peitho – God of longing. www.theoi.com/Olympios/Aphrodi…
Pothos knows what he wants, and he can usually get it, but it's simply never enough. He only truly wants what he cannot have, and therefore has very few moments of actual happiness. Except for watching his sister have a meltdown because she can't get Apollo to notice her. That's always a laugh riot!
Phobos – Son of Aphrodite and Ares – Twin of Deimos – God of fear.
When something goes terribly, horribly, wrong at Olympus high, you can bet that Phobos and Deimos have something to do with it. The more wild of the two, Phobos comes up with plans that make the students quake with fear. His brother is more than happy to go along with Phobos' schemes, and the only thing to come between them is their absolute obsession with Dysnomia.
Triton – Son of Poseidon and Amphitrite – Messenger god of the Sea. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(…
Airheaded, dunce, but a genuinely nice guy, Triton is sorta like a surfer dude who's gotten one too many concussions from undersea rocks. Since his mother is a water nymph he doesn't like to stay out of the water for too long, and can often be found dunking his head in the schools water fountain or eating lunch pool-side. His best friend is Angelia, mostly because he loves gossip as much as she does! Unfortunately he isn't any good at remembering it, but it doesn't matter, because Angelia loves to tell secrets to any who'll listen, even if it's the thousandth time she's told them.
