Aphrodite is worshipped by mortals as the goddess of beauty, love, and procreation, but it is her own pleasure that she cares for more than anyone else’s. Aphrodite engages in research (if it can be called that) in various ways of enhancing mortal sexual pleasure and manipulating emotion. She most often appears as a perfectly formed woman with golden hair, but Aphrodite makes alterations both major and minor to her bodies the way other Olympians change clothes. Whatever the particulars of her form, her vanity ensures she is always beautiful.

Aphrodite doesn't engage in combat if she can avoid it. She wears a belt from which she can release nanites capable of manipulating emotional areas of the brain. It works like empathy except its effects are limited to creating attraction or pleasure (WIL 21 for the purposes of attack).

I think I know her, but now she smokes two packs a day, has six kids and guzzles Miller Lite. She still drives them trailer park boy wild.

I imagine that there would be plenty of volunteers for this kind of thing as it would be a lot more fun that selling plasma or signing up for weird medical trials.

She gets other people into combat but that's okay she's pretty!

She has not power based on pheromon manipulation ?

@Tim - Huh. Who new?

@Christian - She'll be sending the paperwork over.

@Fran - She does do that, that's true.

@Fabien - You could interprete it that way if you wish. Pheremones don't appear to be that potent in humans, is why I stayed clear of it, but then it's not like I'm being particularly strict science in anything else, so it's admittedly a stylistic choice.

Makes me think of a professor I once had who did research on the libertine novel, lol.

@Chris - There's no teacher like experience.
