Appearance: Gorgeous, perfect, eternally young woman with a beautiful body.
Aprhodite's Symbol or Attribute: Her Girdle, which has magical powers to compel love.
Strengths: Potent sexual attractiveness, dazzling beauty.
Weaknesses: A bit stuck on herself, but with a perfect face and body, who can blame her?
Aphrodite's Parents: One genealogy gives her parents as Zeus, King of the Gods, and Dione, an early earth/mother goddess. More commonly, she was believed to be born of the foam in the sea which bubbled around the severed member of Ouranos when Kronos slew him.

Aprhodite's Husband: Hephaestus, the lame smith-god.
