Aphrodite is the 5th and last born of the high archangels spawned by Yulia. Aphrodite was created so as to embody the love aspect of Yulia.
Aphrodite has semi-curly blonde hair that reaches down to her feet, as the hair of Yulia does. Aphrodite's breasts are large and long, and have large pink areolas. As is common in archangels, Aphrodite has 2 large wings attached to her back. Her wings have white feathers, and her feathers are particularly soft and fluffy. Aphrodite wears no clothes, and carries no weapon or other equipment.
Aphrodite is not much of a fighter at all. She prefers to avoid fights, only fighting when it is unavoidable. Aphrodite nonetheless has a powerful attack due to her godly power. Aphrodite can cause anything that her skin touches to loose strength in it's chemical bonds, and cause individual biological cells to detach from each other, causing whatever she touches to turn into a semi-liquid mush.
Aphrodite's lair is in Amoria, in Elysium. Aphrodite's lair is in a roughly circular clearing in a forest. The clearing has green grass on the ground. At the center of the clearing is Aphrodite's lair. Aphrodite's lair is an unassuming cottage, made of stones & mortar, logs & tar, and a chimney. However, when one enters the clearing in the forest, one can feel the love emanating from the cottage. The cottage, and the green grassy clearing that surrounds it, is protected by very powerful magic, which reduces the power of any magical attacks to a minuscule fraction of their original power, and reduces the size of weapons and intended attackers to the size of mice. With the exception of attackers, being within the clearing causes any wounds or other ailments to slowly heal. Being within the cottage itself causes any wounds or other ailments to rapidly heal.
Aphrodite teaches that physical affection is a form of giving.
