King of Gods - God of Lightning and Thunder
- gives you smooth and comfortable feeling always -

Personality: He is charismatic and charming, self-assured and self-confident in a manner that is almost unhealthy but not atypical for those who are used to power and money, and in his case, not at all unjustified. He is Zeus, the god of sky and weather, law, order and fate. The king of gods, in fact; wielder of lightning and thunder, the greatest of the Olympian gods, the most high and powerful among the immortals and ruler of all mankind. As such, he has no equals or peers - only (more or less) loyal subjects.
They say he is just. They say he is a protector of people and meetings of councils, that he presides over the state and every family and household. They say he rewards the good, avenges those who were wronged and punishes the evil-doers and they are right. He is justice, his word is law. However, they tend to forget that underneath all the benevolence and goodwill, he is petty, greedy, possessive, vengeful, spiteful, ruthless, unforgiving and oh so very, very selfish, too. His own interests and needs come first - always and with no exception.
Keep in mind that although he appears to be friendly, he is not nice or kind without reason. If you have a favour to ask, be polite and approach him with the respect he thinks he deserves and he might just grant you whatever wish you have. Don't try to take or touch what he considers rightfully his without permission. And you'd better not even think about thinking about leaving him.
History: Son of Cronos and Rhea, the youngest of their children, saved his siblings from the belly of their father. Together with an army of divine allies, he overthrew the Titans and seized the throne for himself.
The world was divided between him and his brothers. Poseidon became ruler of the sea, Hades the ruler of the underworld and Zeus himself became ruler of the skies. He married Hera, bestowed his blessing upon countless nymphs and mortals and ruled comfortably over his dominion, thinking it would last forever.
However, as time went by, the mortals moved on, leaving their old gods behind in favour of other, newer ones and forced him to descend from the lofty heights of Mt Olympus. He watched his kingdom, his vanity, turn to dust. A lesser god would have laid himself down and perished with everything he'd called his own. Not Zeus, though.
He wandered among the mortals, and watching them, he learnt about their new values, their new obsessions, their new desires. Learnt about all the subtle ways in which power worked in this new age. How it was distributed, how it was obtained, to what it was most firmly attached.
It was quite simple actually. Money; that wicked little invention of those clever Phoenicians.
As soon as he realised that, Zeus set out to grab a piece of that pie. Ever since the Renaissance which he'd spent in Italy, he's been accumulating wealth, making himself comfortable in the realm of mortals, earning, winning, commandeering (yes, and buying) their worship and respect. He arrived in America in the late 19th century, curious about that new world, the land of unlimited possibilities that was rumoured to have the potential to surpass Europe in terms of brilliance, power and influence.
Of course, more true worship would be nice. But since that wasn't likely to happen any time soon or ever, he settled for the power that was linked to wealth and soon he'd carved himself a comfortable space in this part of the world as well, idly watching his investments and efforts come to fruition. He almost felt kingly again - until the 21st century arrived.
2009 has been a strange year and he doesn't quite know how to explain his actions except to claim temporary insanity or maybe even senility but fortunately he doesn't have to explain himself to anyone. All that matters is that he is back and although there are a few minor yet slightly annoying issues he has to address, it feels good to be him again.
