The Pirates Of Atlantis
If Ares in his strength, power, and bluster can be considered, in some respects, the god of men-folk, his opposite number is Erestaia, the Atlantean goddess of women, home, family, and domestic matters in general. She radiates calm and tranquility; not even the Deathbringer, with his infamous temper, can remain angry in her presence. And it is she who prepares the food and makes the divine wine for the gods’ feasts, so she is beloved by all the pantheon.
Erestaia often appears to mortals in distress to comfort them, though her appearance varies. At times she’s almost the twin of her sister Eordica, though she dresses more like a citydweller. At other times she’s a beautiful maiden, or an attractive young mother. Her symbol, a flame on a hearth, is carved in iconic form into the mantelpiece over almost every Atlantean fireplace.
