(Greek Deity) NIKE

Greek Goddess of : Victory
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Victoria

Ancient Greek goddess of victory. Nike is present in all battles but doesn't have any stories of her own, which is rather odd bearing in mind the greeks love nothing more than the sweet taste of victory. Maybe they ate her?

Nike is the daughter of Titans Pallas and Styx but it didn't affect her speed or agility having such lumbering oafs for parents. This is probably because she had wings and despite the swoosh is nothing at all to do with sports shoes made by a certain company that brazenly infringed on her copyright.

She was the sister of Cratos (Strength), Bia (Force), and Zelus (Zeal), the bodyguards of Zeus and helpers in all of the top wars.

Athena wouldn't put up with defeat but is a big fan of victory which is why she is often seen in Nike's company, and in Rome she is known as Victoria. Big tough Jupiter riding into battle with Victoria by his side - it hardly instills fear does it?
