Oh, so you’re interested in the Greek gods & their portrayal in my novels, are you?

Well, you’ve arrived at the right place. In this section, I detail the main gods of the ANGRY GREEK GODS series & the powers they have, along with any special skills attributed to them.

These are powers mentioned/seen in the novels and implied; this is by no means an exhaustive list of every power these gods have (otherwise you’d be reading hundreds of pages!)

Please note: all Olympians & Titans (and Primordials) have the “base” powers of mind-reading, teleportation (their methods will be described for each of them), invisibility, and “godly intuition” (the power to sniff out/sense other gods in the vicinity). “Lower-tier” Olympians such as Psyche & Hedone don’t have all these powers.


EROS (god of love and sex):

• power to find soulmates
• marks soulmates rib-cages with the name of their soulmate, at birth
• magical arrows (used to bind souls) (only Eros can wield these) (created by Aphrodite); the effect of these can change based on his emotions & if any substance (poison, potion) is coating the tip
• can identify ongoing arguments & detect tension in the air, even more so when a god is involved
• detects heartbeats & the “color” of one’s heart (blackened=evil intentions; white=pure)
• his manner of teleporting is unknown

APHRODITE (goddess of love and beauty):

• alluring/seduction powers (on gods or humans); causes uncontrollable urges
• can stir up strong arousal (even when a person/god is extremely reluctant) & can cause mind-shattering fantasies (so strong they feel real)
• power to find soulmates (rarely uses this; gave this power to Eros)
• power to help understand/detect the truth in a gentle, soothing manner (mostly for humans)

• to teleport, she spins in a mist of sparkly pink & disappears


PSYCHE (goddess of the soul):

• she doesn’t have mind-reading or invisibility powers
• atmospheric energy/power (draws strength from it)
• soul-soothing powers
• can infer an area with positivity & joy
