(Greek Deity) HEBE

Greek Goddess of : Youth
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Greek Goddess of Youth, the daughter of Zeus and Hera, and remarkably resilient cup bearer of the gods.

When Hera tried to delay the birth of Heracles, Hebe bore the brunt, being grabbed by her hair and tossed right from the top of Olympus. Luckily she is the mistress of rejuvination which is always a bonus if you're a scapegoat and she arrived back looking lovelier than ever just in time to top up the mugs with ambrosia without so much as a whimper.

Hebe is the exact opposite of Geras, full of youthful energy and extremely helpful. She does motherly things like run Ares bath and help Hera to her charriot, and when Heracles became all godly Hebe married him and probably did all of his washing too - she needed something to keep her occupied once Ganymede nicked her job!

The Romans called her Juventas, which is very similar to their bent football team. If they based their name on the youthful goddess i'm sure she would be more than a little dissapointed given the recent unsavoury events surrounding said team.
