Choose from this list:

Apollo -- Apollo is the god of music, archery, medicine, light, and truth, since he never lies. He is also associated with prophecy, law, and the arts and is often mistaken for the god of the sun, which is Helios's job. Apollo plays the lyre acquired from Hermes as compensation for the theft of a herd of cattle. He carries a golden bow with him when he goes hunting, much like his twin sister, Artemis, who often accompanies him. He is responsible for teaching mankind medicine.
Zeus -- His first marriage was to Metis, whom he swallowed later on because it was prophesied that if she ever had a son, he would dethrone Zeus. He then married his sister, Hera, whom he did not really love. It is said that Hera refused to marry Zeus for three hundred years until Zeus disguised himself as a poor cuckoo and made Hera declare her love for it (Zeus). Hera is an older sister of Zeus but it is not unusual for immortals to marry their own kin. Not long after Hera and Zeus married, Zeus began to stray from his marital vows of faithfulness, which caused Hera much jealousy although she herself had many children with Zeus, including Ares, Eris, Iris, Hephaestus, and Hebe.
Ares -- Ares is the god of war. He is known as a murderous, quarrelsome, vain, cruel, aggressive, and cowardly god. He rarely takes a permanent side in war, for the sight of blood shed is pure pleasure for him. It is said that his throne is covered with human skin. Ares also loves looting and slaughtering. But strangely enough, Aphrodite was attracted to him simply because he was handsome! Ares's parents are Zeus and Hera, and both of them are disgusted at Ares's hobby.
Dionysius -- Since Dionysius is an earth God, he roams the earth quite frequently. He is always accompanied by his followers, the Bacchantes who are all very friendly, and who sing a lot. When men try to take advantage of him, not realizing that he is God, he punishes them. But before he punsishes his unlucky victims, he gives them time to realize that he is a God. If they learn soon enough that he is a God, they are spared, if they don't and they continue to pester, Dionysius will punish them.
Hades -- Hades is the Lord of the Underworld. When he and his brothers, Zeus and Poseidon, drew lots, he ended up with the Underworld His domain is surrounded by the rivers, Styx, Acheron, Pyriplegethoin, Kokytos, and Lethe. Although most people think Hade's world is all darkness and terror, it is not. For the mortals that lead an evil life, they would go to Tartarus, where they would be punished. For the mortals that lead a good life and who worshipped the Gods, they went to the Elysian fileds, which is the equivalent of Christian's Heaven. Hades and his wife, Persephone, make the decision wheather a mortal lead a good or evil life. Hades is also considered the God of Wealth because of all the precious stones in the earth. Hades is the King of the Dead, but not, as many people think, the King of Death. He is a greedy, uppitying, terrible, dark, and grim God.
Hephaestus -- Hephaestus is the God of fire and forge. He sets up his work in a volcanoe so people always know when he's at work by seeing the eruptions of fire. Hephaestus made all 12 thrones of the highest gods. His talents for designing were well developed at an early age for is also a patron to both smiths and weavers alike. Hephaestus is a kind and peaceful god which is a stroke of pure luck his wife, Aphrodite.
Hermes -- Hermes, the god of thieves, merchants, herdsman, travelers and messenger to the gods earned his roles. He was also given a cap and sandals with wings, as well as a staff with two snakes intertwined around it. He was responsible for guiding the souls of the dead to Hades. He was a son of Maia and Zeus who, on the first day of his birth, stole a herd of cattle from Apollo. He also invented the lyre. In short, Hermes is one of the smartest gods on Olympus.
Poseidon -- Poseidon is the god of the sea. His power is exceeded by only his younger brother Zeus. Like his brothers, Poseidon wields a weaponcalled the trident, which can cause just as much damage. When he strikes it, it can shake the earth. Poseidon has a very greedy and quarrelsome nature, and is constantly looking to add to his territory.
Aphrodite -- Aphrodite is the Goddess of love, desire, and beauty. Aphrodite herself is considered the most beautiful of all goddesses and women. Her name, Aphrodite, means "foam born" because some sources claim that when Cronus attacked Uranus and threw his genitals into the sea, Aphrodite rose from the foam created by the blood churning against the waves. But other sources say that Aphrodite is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. When Aphrodite first appeared on earth, all the Gods wanted her hand in marriage. They brought her gifts which no mortal could ever have. She finally chose Hephaestus as her husband although she wanted Ares.
Artemis -- Artemis is the goddess of the moon, hunt, and of virgins. She is the twin sister of Apollo and the daughter of Zeus and Thetis. Artemis is one of three chaste goddesses, the others being Athena and Hestina. She shoots arrows that give people no pain, which is why many pray to her for a painless death, particularly women. Artemis never married, although she was great friends with Orian.
Athena -- Athena, the goddess of wisdom, war, crafts, protector of cities, war heroes, Athens, creator of the flute and the olive tree, and Zeus' favorite child, is perhaps one of the most powerful immortals in Greek mythology. Her mother was Metis and her father was Zeus. Athena is the only child Zeus ever gave birth to besides Dionysius. She sprang out of his head fully dressed and armed when Zeus swallowed Metis, a Titaness, and from information conveyed to him by Gaia, learned that if the child of Metis was a boy, he would be overthrown.
Demeter -- Demeter, the goddess of Harves is also known as the barley mother. She controls the amount of the rain sun and well being of the plants in the world. She taught mankind how to sow grains and gave them the seeds they neede to grow crops. When her daughter Persephone was kidnapped by Hades she refused to let plants thrive and caused a famine. When Persephone was restored to her for six monthes every year, she was still unsatisfied and during the six monthes that Persephone was gone, Demeter refused to let things grow. Those six monthes are known as fall and winter.
Hera -- Hera is the jealous and powerful wife of Zeus. She is the goddess of marriage and childbirth. It is said that Hera refused to marry Zeus for three hundred years until Zeus created a storm and disguised himself as a cuckoo in order to win her sympathy. He then made Hera declare her love for it (Zeus).
Hestia -- Three goddesses on Olympus chose a life of chastity: Athena, Artemis, and Hestia, goddess of fire, family, and the hearth. Of the three, Hestia is the least known today. According to some versions of creation myths, Hestia is the oldest of all Rhea and Cronus' children. She has a quiet and gentle nature and does not take part in the constant bickering among the other immortals. Once, she sat among the other gods, with a throne of her own. When Dionysius appeared, he demanded a seat and Hestia willingly gave up hers, prefering the hearth.
