If you could pick any character or group of characters to be from Greek mythology, who or what would you be? Discuss.

Nyx. She generally doesn't get involved, but even Zeus was terrified of her
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Charon, because people would fear me and give me money, and my job wouldn't really be that hard. I'd probably have plenty of time to relax and play on the internet.

Atlas, so I could bother people with this quote and make them feel bad about themselves:

"If you saw me, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that I stood, blood running down my chest, my knees buckling, my arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of my strength, and the greater the effort the heavier the world bore down upon my shoulders -- what would you tell me to do? I don't know. What could I do? What would you tell me? To shrug."

Poseidon, since I know he has something to do with Atlantis
Genesis I. And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.

Homer, cause they I get credit for all that sh!t.

Or Perseus, since he is actually one of the very few heroes who gets a happy ending.

Hermes, duh. He was always my favorite Greek god--quick, sly, clever, a messenger.
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

Can't decide between Artemis and Apollo.
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact." - Carl Sagan

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.

Either Gaia or Uranus.

Dionysus. He is a feminine dude that likes to party and the ladies love him.

Basically, he is the rock star of gods.

i'd be Ouranos the first god
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

You'd be my father. Spoiler alert. It doesn't end well for you.
