Moira stands with authority, being an average size, her perfect hourglass figure is noticeable. Her skin is soft, but her muscle is toned, she didn't just party up there on Olympus, she trained her body into a golden ratio. She has a light olive complexion, withe a small dusting of freckles on her shoulder. While not actively searching, she keeps her eyes at ease, not closed but a softer look. Her hair is straight and short enough to cover her neck and full enough to run hands through. Sometimes Aphrodite likes to hide golden strands among them. She always smiles wide with full lips and white teeth. Her face is round and soft, again, hiding light freckles.

She has a tattoo of the sun on the back of her neck, courtesy of the sun god, Apollo, himself, which read 'Omorfia Mou' (my beauty). She has a golden chain given to her by Sean for her tenth birthday that she only takes off to clean.  She disdains shoes, prefering to go barefoot if she can, but a pair of brown sandals when she needs to. Her favorite casual clothes are tight jeans that show off her hips and a tshirt with either a local band or hero's logo (gotta rep the smaller guys!). The golden bracer given to her by the gods is simple and undorned, it wraps around her right lower arm

Her costume is an ankle length sleeveless layered dress, a pair of golden strap sandal and a golden laurel in her hair. The dress has many colors - white, black, red, purple - but only one at a time. There's not a pattern she's divined.

Power Descriptions
When using the golden bracer given to her by the Olympians, her outline is a soft yellow and her eye color turns yellow. Depending on which god she's channeling, her attitude might change. Aphrodite might make her a little lovesick with the people she interacts with. Ares might make her super confrontational. Apollo will put her mind on a myriad of projects and other things she hasn't finished. Dionysus will spam her mind with junk ads.

The Olympian Fighting style was taught to her by Ares. It focuses on getting her opponent to the ground and pounding them in vital and or soft places.

Olympian Immortality and Strength don't have descriptions other than what they do. She can run faster, jump higher, lift more. She's not susceptable to mortal diseases, poison or the ravages of heat and cold. She hasn't aged a day in almost 10 years. If she were to die, she's pop back up in the Elysian Fields 24 hours later, able to walk out and back to the mortal realm.

Moira was born on Mount Olympus as Edone, goddess of hedonistic pursuits. Ares and Aphrodite had a fling, like they always do, but a child was conceived of the tryst. Hephaestus had had enough of his unfaithful wife and wanted something to show for it. Eris, unloved of all Olympus, seized the opportunity to whisper a truly wicked plot in Hephaestus's mind. It involved giving Aphrodite an apple. The apple was dipped in the River Styx. When Aphrodite ate the apple, it would not affect her, but the unborn child, stripping away it's godly essence. It was delivered by an underworld nymph, who was to lie and say it was a gift from Persephone for the new babe. Aphrodite accepted the gift and gobbled it up, unknowing of the fruit's real power.

When Edone was born she was healthy and happy, but the most noticeable thing was that she had no god soul. Like she was a normal Olympian, but nothing about her was deific. Aphrodite called upon Hera to make heads or tails of this treachery. She saw the child was cursed. That someone had stolen the essence before she was born. Eris, unloved of all Olympus, revealed herself as the underworld nymph who gave the apple to Aphrodite and was only able to act through Hephaestus. Ares was displeased with all of this and went to pay Hephaestus a visit. Eris disappeared. That left Hera and Aphrodite. Hera cared not for this scheme, but Aphrodite received scorn for having the child in the first place. Hera looked after marriages.

Instead of having the babe live among minor gods away from Olympus, she sent word to the mortal realm. To some of her most faithful followers. A priest of the faith, Sean Morley, jumped at the chance to raise the child of the goddess. Aphrodite saw into his heart and he knew he was true. With some work throughs, Sean took custody of the baby, naming her Moira, as it seemed it was fate. Sean raised Moira with special care, giving her the utmost attention and love, as a true parent would. He also taught her the ways of the faith, so when her parents revealed them selves to her, it wouldn't seem too weird.

Moira took after her mother and father in personality. She loved almost everything, but she knew when there were times that love had to be tough. Those situations were few and far between. She was quick to make friends and even quicker to lose enemies. Growing up within arms reach of her mortal father, she made aunts, uncles, and cousins at the temple. She even got her first job at Morley's pub - Sean's familial business - as a waitress and eventually a bartender. Her jovial and light demeanor kept business coming.

On her 21st birthday, Aphrodite began giving Moira visions. Moira knew of the goddess through readings and such, but had never had a divine intervention. Aphrodite told her that she was her child and of the sordid complications of her birth. Also, there was a gift for her. A golden liquid made of divinity. It wouldn't do it right away, but it would restore her to full power. Though when she was done, she would have to come back to Olympus as Edone and shedding Moira. At the time Moira thought this was a great idea.

Another upside of the liquid was that it gave her part of her deific powers back. She could be a superhero if she wanted! And that she did, for a time. It wasn't four color and she wasn't quite proactive, but she mingled within the hero and villain community. Taking the name Divine, she put herself on the side of angels, but definitely wasn't a four color hero. Though she made friends on both sides of the coin. Heroes led to the Knights of Freedom (which, while good, was short lived). She even had a short fling with Captain Knievel (before she found out what he really was). She found the truest form of love in a woman went by the name Angel (Angel Marks). True friendship in Stesha/Fleur de Joie.

But those two years passed by like nothing. By the time she was back to full power she remembered nothing. and was back on Olympus. What happened on Olympus stayed on Olympus. She made friends with Dionysus. She and Apollo fell in emphatic love. She, Ares and Aphrodite shared familial love. And she genuinely enjoyed herself. Six years passed with epic times had by all. But by the end of it, she was tired. Unfulfilled. And nostalgic of her true home.

After thinking about it for a while and a long talk with her her closest friends and family on Olympus, she chose to forgo her godhood and leave Olympus. Zeus zapped her and she was on her way out the door when she was met by her friends and family. They had a gift It wasn't godhood, but something she could use on Earth. A golden bracer that could channel their power from Aphrodite, Ares, Apollo and Dionysus. Also the ability to talk with the group back and forth. She thanked them and started her new journey.

Personality and Motivation
Moira has a light-hearted spirit that seems like she's always having fun, even when in danger! Though she can be serious, no one really likes her serious side. It's more of her deific father showing through. It's short and mean and no nonsense. It wants to get things done. Luckily, she rarely indulges her serious side.

Moira's back for her friends and family, because while having fun is fine, its nothing without anyone with you! She also sees this as a chance to show she can be a hero and not just a powerful person.

Easily Distracted: Things of beauty are likely to pull her off course, be it a painting or a person.
Enemy: Eris plays the long game. She's not done with Edone/Moira yet. She may play on Hephaestus's feelings too to get him to lash out. Also Hades but he can't do anything directly (can he?)
Identity: While she does have a stylish costume and a code name, her 'normal' life and her heroic life are not separate.
Relationship: Sean, her mortal father.
Responsibility: She has a job at Morley's pub.
Responsibility: There are followers of the faith who may defer to her for advice.
