Roman Name: Mars
 
Ares is the god of war. He is the son to Zeus and Hera. Ares is hated and is described as murderous, bloodstained, and a coward. They say he runs away from battle when he is wounded.
 
Ares has no cities where he is worshipped.
He came from Thrace, a city of fierce and rude people, located in northeastern Greece. Ares' animal is the dog and his bird is the vulture.
