    Ares/Mars is the Greco-Roman god of war. The only god to never have a male love affair, Ares was considered fairly barbaric by the Greeks. The Romans liked him better, naming many of their sons Marcus after him. Mars also gave his name to our month of March and the planet Mars. He was followed by the gods Deimos (terror) and Phobos (fear), and was the lover of Aphrodite/Venus, goddess of love, whom he impregnated with the Erotes, the winged gods of lust.
