(Olympian) HERA

Greek Goddess of : Sky, Marriage
Attributes : Peacock, Crow, Cow
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Juno

Daughter of Cronus and Rhea. She is the wife AND sister of Zeus.

The story of how they married isn't exactly candy and roses. Zeus had been trying for ages to woo her with little success. Eventually he pretended to be an injured bird hoping that Hera would show her softy feminine side. Sure enough Hera came and snuggled the poor injured creature into her chest. Zeus couldn't believe his luck... and raped her. Hardly a recipe for marital bliss but Hera married him anyway to cover up the scandal and became the protectoress of married woman. The wedding nite lasted for three hundred years, needless to say a little Viagra came in very handy.

She was insanely jealous of pretty much every other woman in the universe, but only because Zeus had slept with them, and made a point of punishing them with unbridled fury.
