In Greek mythology, Hebe is described as goddess of youth, and daughter of Zeus and Hera. Hebe was the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses of Mt Olympus.  She was also the goddess of the young bride and an attendant of the goddess Aphrodite. Hebe had power to make persons of advanced age young again. Hebe assists Hera in putting the horses to her chariot and she bathes and dresses her brother Ares.  Hebe's male counterpart was the boy Ganymede. When Hercules ascended into heaven after his painful death, Hebe became his bride.  Hebe became by Hercules the mother of two sons, Alexiares and Anitcetus. Sometime she was represented with wings like the goddess Iris and Nike.

  1. Ancient Greek mythology tells a story about a man named Mikael Shadows born from two mortal parents during the century 23 B.C. He was one of seven people to be sacrificed for Ares, god of war. But instead became the first demigod after a human birth by an unknown deity. In exchange for this godly gift, there had to be a sacrifice made and that was his entire family. Mikael is the son of Melite (mother) and Codros (father), he is also the brother of Icarus (brother), Patron (brother) and Isadora (sister). It is said that Mikael will roam free on this earth until he seeks his true vengeance on Ares. Mikael Shadows, God of vengeance.
