A god of agriculture may seem a minor god against the likes of Apollo and Ares but Demeter has done more to shape the lives of mortals than any other Olympian. After fighting hard in the Titanomachy she sought to remake the mortal world which had been devastated by the warring gods. It was Demeter who brought the skill of agriculture and knowledge of the seasons to the mortals. For this, mortals all over Greece celebrate the goddess and her temples are large and wealthy.
Despite her care for the mortal world she is still an Olympian god and not to be crossed. Demeter can be as cruel and vicious as any of her Olympian companions.
