(Greek Deity) ATE

Also known as
Greek Goddess of : Wreck and ruin
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Greek Goddess of foolish impulse, stupid decisions and rash actions. Causing bloody quarells was her thing.

Ate was a bit foolish when she tricked Zeus into declaring his next-born son would be King of Mycanae while Hera nipped out to push through the birth of Eurystheus. Zeus had done his sums and assumed it would be Heracles, then he did some more sums and worked out exactly what angle his foot needed to be at to boot Ate straight from the top of Olympus.

Once on earth Ate raised more hell then ever and was never happier than when leading Gods and mortals down the dark path to ruin. She was particularly proud of the quarrel she stirred up between Agamemnon and Achilles during the Trojan War, but that was the last straw for Zeus who sent his decrepid daughters, the Litai (“Prayers”), to follow Ate and clean up her mess.
