Ares, the god of war, was tall, handsome, but very cruel. Hiscompanion was Eris, the spirit of strife. Eris held the apple of discord.When she threw it among enemies, war broke out for the apple. Oncethe enemies clashed their swords, Ares would join the fight not oneither side, not caring who won or lost, only caring for the people todie.Sometimes the wars were so vicious, Ares himself would become wounded. After he was wounded, he would run to Olympus,where Zeus treated him with the ointment of the gods. Ares wasinstantly healed, and immediately returned to war.Because Ares killed so many people, no one was fond of him,except for Aphrodite, who admired Ares for his handsome looks. This just shows that no matter how evil Ares behaved, there was at leastone god in the world of myths that admired him, but some of thosewho didn’t, suffered with their lives.
