Enyo, goddess of War by DragonArcher Enyo, goddess of War by DragonArcher
This is a pin-up of an original character, a villain I created for Wonder Woman. She is based on the Greek war goddess Enyo, who was pictured in myths as a consort of Ares. She was said to appear as fearsome woman, armed for battle, and covered with the blood and gore of the battlefield. She was christened "the destroyer of cities."
:iconpyromania101:
Enyo was Ares' twin sister...though admittedly, incest is very common amongst the Olympians. She's often considered to be even worse than him, as she kills indiscriminately whereas Ares will choose a side in battle, despite switching sides every now and then to increase the carnage. She also skins her victims and blankets her bed with their hides as trophies, a practice often inaccurately attributed to her twin brother. Ares lives for war, while Enyo lives and breathes violence in any possible form, going into fits of manic, shrieking laughter as the blood of her victims sprays all over her.
