Act 7, the Return of the Pantheon.
Staff Team
Welcome to Crystal Empire, USA
The Dark Alliance has faced a divide: Queen Nehellenia has been purified and is now the Goddess and ruler of the Moon. With her purification at the hands of Neo Queen Serenity and Neo Sailor Moon, there is a shift in the wind – Greek deities (original planet rulers), heralds (Sailors/Knights) and Augurs (priest(esses) and consorts) from the past are being revived and Hades has been unsealed.

With the coming of Hades has seen the unsealing of Satre and Hyperion, and the future is now even more uncertain as the ruler of Nemesis has a vendetta against Chronos…and more. The Future Moon have now since reunited with the Crystal Empire, their memories have been restored. Will they be able to save their future that they can no longer return to?

  • Cell Phone: The latest smartphone on the market; for a deity sealed away for millennia she has taken to the technology of the time surprisingly quickly, and given how busy she has made herself with this human persona and life she has taken on, she is never without the device or far from it.
  • Compact: A compact of translucent setting powder with a mirror and small powder puff, for when she needs to freshen up her makeup (not that she does, her makeup always remains as flawless as she is).
  • Pearls: A set of genuine pearl stud earrings, she never leaves home without them in her ears even if she is wearing a combination of other earrings.
  • Aphrodite Core: A diamond-shaped star seed of the softest rose quartz hues and pearlescent whites, the essence of Aphrodite’s power. It is smoky and in some places dark as pitch, the blemishes are ever shifting and fluctuating in size and frenzy. Still pretty, still mesmerizing to look at, but leaves one with a sense of wrongness.
  • Magic Girdle: Deity Aphrodite’s sacred belt is crafted of gold links and adorned in pearls, her sacred stone. A rose quartz rosette serves as the buckle to clasp the girdle when worn. Despite its dainty and almost fragile appearance the girdle is not of this world, crafted of a metal that has not existed in millennia and may actually never have existed outside of its creation.
  • Limiter: An elegant wedding ring with a large two-carat round, perfect cut diamond inset in a 14K yellow-gold band and surrounded by smaller pearls all around. It is both simple and elaborately crafted and fits perfectly on Cress’ left ring finger — so perfectly, that she cannot remove it even though she is not married. At least...she doesn’t think her marriage lasted through the millennia, the destruction of Silver Millennium, and her being sealed away.

NAME: Deity Aphrodite
ELEMENT: Energy + Love Hatred

Powers

  • Ergokinesis: Aphrodite holds control over energy, most notably emotional and empathic energies, giving her the capability to manipulate it for various purposes. She can alter, increase or decrease, even outright change emotions in other beings, manifest emotional and other energies to physical levels, even block emotions. She can sense and see the auras and emotions of other beings, even concentrate such energies into solid forms such as temporary weaponry or shields.
  • Odikinesis: A corruption of Aphrodite’s ability to control the energies of love and affection, Chaos twisted it into an ability of controlling and manipulating hatred. Hatred, intense feelings of resentment and loathing, those negative and ugly emotions which reside in the hearts of beings. She can sense and augment or dampen them, create or channel them into a being, even manifest the emotional energy to a physical level. As of now in her corrupted state, these emotions fuel Aphrodite and augment her own abilities, and she will willingly draw on them from any available source.
  • Emotion Manipulation: While love (and currently hatred) are the emotions within Aphrodite’s main sphere of influence, she is still capable of controlling emotion as a whole and is not limited to just the two opposing emotions. She can sense all emotions, feelings, and moods, and is capable of manipulating, augmenting, or otherwise influencing them in any manner. She is even capable of drawing on the emotions and manifesting them at physical levels, such as to create shields and temporary corporal weaponry, or something simple like making a person’s emotional aura visible to others and not just her.
  • Florakinesis: Aphrodite has a minor dominion over flowers, as they are symbolic of emotions and especially love depending on the flower. She can create and manipulate flowers and all parts of the flower, and can even revive withered or dead flowers. She can forge an empathic bond with flowers, being they are living in nature, utilize flora in an offensive manner, influence their growth, even manipulate pollen and spore activity. If a flower or plant can produce poison, she can even manipulate its generation and secretion.
  • Beauty Manipulation: Aphrodite doesn’t just hold dominion over love but of beauty as well, giving her absolute control over it as well. She can manipulate the beauty of herself and of other beings and creatures, including flora and fauna, and can even influence the beauty of optical phenomena in nature such as sunsets and sunrises, natural scenery, even natural gemstones and other objects. She can enhance or reduce the beauty in others, and her own beauty is unparalleled.
  • Charmspeak: Aphrodite has the capability to use her voice to mesmerize, hypnotize and allure others, allowing them to affect or otherwise influence her target and their emotions much like a siren is capable of doing. She can control her hypnotic voice to essentially turn it on and off, and it is not always effective when used on everyone, particularly against others who may have strong willpower or be more resistant to the siren call.
  • Loss of Control: Mythology has told of many aspects, qualities, accomplishments and tales of Aphrodite, some of them absolutely true, some of them twisted takes on the truth, and others entirely fabricated lies. But one thing that the stories always get right is the depths of Aphrodite’s passion, and the troubles it has caused for humans. Deity Aphrodite certainly has a temper on her, one that can easily get the better of her and send her into a tailspin of pettiness and rage. She has influenced wars — practically started them herself — simply because she was slighted. And as one who is always in control of her emotions, to lose that control in such a manner as anger just further aggravates her.

    And then of course, there is her obsession. As a being of beauty who values as much in everything and seeks to surround herself with beautiful things, Deity Aphrodite can actually become overwhelmed by it if she is not careful, does not temper those very surroundings or remains within for too long. She is particularly susceptible to the beauty of paintings and being easily enamored by them, though exceptionally attractive people by far capture her attention most often, even to the point of immobilizing her as she obsesses.

History

At the making of the universe there is only a special few of you. Divine elect, gods and goddesses, eternal and perfect. And then you are each given your own piece of this universe to command, and soon your planets are even thriving with people to care for, to inspire and watch over and rule. You are one with Venus, second planet from the Sun, a jewel of gold and warmth and beauty. Everything about it is beautiful, an extension of you. The golden pearl of the Solar System. And its people are beautiful, even if their mortal lives are short. But you love all of them anyway, because they are your people and they love you.

The only problem is the disconnect. How can your people truly love you, their goddess and their queen, when their first instinct is to worship you? Some of them even fear you instead. It takes a special human, your chosen Hephaestus, to intercede between you and your Venusians. Do you really choose them, though, or does your devoted and favored Anteros who makes the selection for your Augur? It doesn’t matter, not when they are so quickly beloved by your people and so dedicated to you and to their role as your mouthpiece, your advising ear, your figurehead. It especially doesn’t matter, when it means you can turn your attention more toward the object of your attraction that is your fellow Deity Ares.

You do come to value Hephaestus though, more than you ever expect to, more than the rest of your dear Venusians. In time you even find yourself caring for your beloved Augur, as much as you do Ares…maybe even a little more. You are the goddess of love, after all. You can have them both. You can have it all.

That is the whisper that begins to thread itself in your ears, into your mind. It’s quiet at first, a small fleeting thought, but over time it grows stronger, cements itself into your psyche. It becomes louder and more insistent over time, as your belly grows with the sweet child of yours and Hephaestus’ union, an heir to Venus and all you have nurtured it to become.

You have Hephaestus. You have Ares. You have your daughter. You have your planet and its people. You have everything you need.

But is it enough?

It isn’t. It never will be. Revelation comes as you overhear conversations between your people and those from nearby planets. Inconsequential conversations, words said in passing that mean nothing but stick with you and feed the festering seed that Chaos planted some time ago. Because do you even truly have everything, when your people whisper about you and do things that get in the way of their duty and love to their queen? You have their respect, their fealty, their adoration, but do you truly have the minds and hearts of those important to you?

It happens by accident at first. You don’t mean to take hold of the servant’s mind and heart, to turn off their inhibitions and enthrall them to you. But it happens. But you do it. You rationalize it because as your devoted servant, they should have always been completely committed to you without question, and yet they weren’t. But they are now.

But it doesn’t stop there. Because with every new subject you encounter with doubt, with any sort of hesitation that you can trace back to you no matter how small of a feeling, you charm and entrance and pull them back into your thrall. And you continue to rationalize it when Anteros asks. That guardsman was having doubts about his duty, and if you hadn’t brought him under your influence he could have endangered you or your unborn baby. An advisor was sneaking around and fraternizing with a member of the Jovian delegation that visits every few months — had you not reminded them of their loyalty and love for you, they could have compromised the entire Venusian court. You are reminding everyone of their responsibility to love and worship you. And in doing so, you are keeping Venus safe.

It all comes to a head though when someone asks that damning question. Who is more beautiful? You don’t even know who first utters it, but it’s out there now. A mere mortal, more beautiful than you? It’s not possible, it's inconceivable. And even worse, it means there are still those within your people who do not love you in the way they should.

You don’t even care if the words were spoken in earnest, or if you even know the mortal they are trying to compare you to. You strike them down, turn the mortal girl into a monstrosity and twist the very minds and hearts of the traitors until they are little better than husks, slaves for your fodder.

It’s the match that sets the dry kindle aflame.

It’s a civil war of those devoted to you (either by choice or by your control) and those who are not. The reality is they have seen what you become, as your beloved Hephaestus and Ares try to reason with you, but you will not be fooled. They are pleas that fall on deaf ears, covered by Chaos’ deeply-ingrained influence. Even as you are in labor, the moment you have finally brought your baby girl into the world, you are waging a war of spite and rage and control. One that you will win, or tear Venus apart if it comes to that. And then if anyone else tries to make the same mistake, you will tear them asunder too.

And you are about to win. You are so close to finally crushing the uprising of those who no longer love and worship you. You are one step away from having it all again, for remaking a safe Venus for you and your daughter to rule. You are so, so close to having everything.

But then Chronos steps in.

He steps in and robs you of your victory. And then he cuts you off entirely and robs you of everything you have fought so hard to keep and protect. He robs you of your precious baby daughter, of your throne, of your lovers and your very connection to the universe.

And then he traps you in the very core of the planet that you came from.

At first you rage. And then you panic. And then he even puts a stop to that, sealing you into a deep slumber that not even the death of your daughter and the destruction of all that you worked so hard to preserve can wake you from.

But you can still feel it. Even sealed away, your connection to your planet and your people is not entirely broken. And so it all comes rushing into you in a violent onslaught of emotion and pain when you are finally unsealed and woken up, millennia later to a new era and everything new along with it. While you remained the same, asleep and frozen in nothingness the universe has marched forward without you. A universe without its goddess of love and beauty.

If you were angry with Chronos when he sealed you away, it is little compared to the grief and the fury you feel now.

But while you have your beef with the god of time and space, you also have a desperate need to get back something of what you once knew. Silver Millennium was brought to ruin you are told, but its people were reborn. Which means that maybe, the three beings you love more than yourself are alive.

And you must find them.

Maybe with them, at least, you can make things right.

Writing Sample

The darkness and the silence were all she had known for an eternity. Or maybe it hadn’t been an eternity…she did not know. For her, time had stopped the moment she had been sealed away, a prisoner within the deepest depths of her own planet, disconnected from everything. All that she loved, all that she required…lost to her. But she’d still been connected to the planet. Aphrodite was Venus, as much as Venus was her. She had felt when her people had fallen, and then…. Nothing.

Darkness and silence, crushing and suffocating and depriving.

Until now.

Until a wave of power rushed out from the Earth in a wave, one that even she had felt from the depths of her black hell.

And even after it passed and subsided, the silence didn’t return. No, instead everything hummed around her. She hummed, the wave of power stirring something within and making her restless, desperate all over again to get out, get out, get OUT.

It could have been minutes or years — maybe even longer than that, time meant nothing here and to her anymore — that passed before Aphrodite sensed something else coming closer. Another power, long since unwitnessed and nearly forgotten, but still just familiar… And then she was being pulled, out and away and free of the abyss of her prison. She didn’t quite expect the first face, the first being, that she saw after an eternity of being so alone.
