Aphrodite, also known as Venus and the Goddess of Love, was once a mortal, but was transformed by the Elders into a goddess. She was made the Goddess of Love, and possessed the powers of Empathy, Whirling and Luring. With the other mortals-made-gods, Aphrodite helped entrap the Titans, but her own power went to her head and she, with the other gods, forced the world to worship them.
