The character of Aphrodite repeatedly appears in the manga and anime Valkyrie Apocalypse. She is the Greek goddess of passion, procreation, pleasure, love, and beauty.

Aphrodite attended the Assembly of Valhalla, where the fate of mankind was decided about 4,000 years ago. Mankind was eventually permitted to exist, but not without suffering a penalty. She proposed demolishing Thebes, an ancient Greek city. She stated during the conference that humans are the most hazardous living disease on the earth and that the Earth has become too nasty over the past 1,000 years. Aphrodite was one of the gods that laughed at Brunhild when she declared the gods were reluctant to fight with mortals and volunteered to cast Ragnarök to give mankind a chance.

Urd is the goddess of the past in Norse mythology and a hybrid of a goddess and a demon. Due to this, her guardian angel has a white and black wing as well as her hair and clothing, and it is called World Of Elegance. Her temperament is very strong, but at the same time, she is seductive. She is very adept at handling her powers but tends to exaggerate in their use, making them always cause a disaster, for which she is banished from Asgard and must then live with Belldandy and Keiichi, then is followed by Skuld.

Her weak point is listening to enka-style music, which puts her into a deep and immediate sleep and her alternative energy source is sake. Originally she is the system administrator in the “Yggdrasil system” (system with which god controls the universe), but she escapes from heaven and becomes the matchmaker in Keiichi and Belldandy’s relationship, and for this, she uses her ability to do potions.

She is half-goddess and half-demon, her mother being none other than Hild (the Daimakaicho, “Lord of the underworld,” the demonic equivalent of God), which gives rise to multiple disasters (when the demon side of ‘Urd resurfaces too intensely). It has a half-white, half-black colored angel, World of Elegance. Assigned to the administration of the Yggdrasil system, despite her greater power than Belldandy (according to the latter), she remained only a second-class goddess with limited control, as she spends her time telling lies and can easily break the rules. His alternate energy source is ingesting alcohol. Her strange weak point automatically puts her to sleep. She is an expert in the elemental magic of lightning and fire.

During a complaint about not having wings, which represents less power, it is hinted in chapter 160 that she is also in love with Keima, the reason for her lack of wings being the conflicting feelings between her feelings for him, her desire that Tenri achieves her goal and her distrust for what she understands as a “playboy” facet of Keima.

Holo uses Lawrence’s wagon to flee the city and then embarks on a journey with him to observe how the world has evolved since she left Pasroe. Though she still has her long tail and wolf ears, Holo has chosen to take the appearance of a fifteen-year-old girl. She is actually a big wolf, which many people have both feared and revered throughout history. Yoitsu’s Sage is how she refers to herself. She is often quite haughty and self-sufficient, but because of the long period of seclusion she has experienced in Pasroe, she has developed a more vulnerable side to her personality.

She leans on Lawrence because she worries about being alone; Lawrence is acutely aware of this and makes an effort to reassure her. Holo is also aware of the difference in life expectancy between her and Lawrence, which she compares to the “blink of an eye” for our species. She speaks in an unusual manner.

Thanks to her divine powers and her very high levels in every category (except for intelligence and luck), she was able to obtain the archpriest class immediately; she is very powerful against demons and the undead, as well as being able to resurrect the dead and, as a goddess, purify water. More than teaching useful skills to the team, she focuses on improving her sleight of hand.

She is a goddess of Poverty and Misfortune and has a very lively and carefree character. Her clan is “Dai,” and her only Divine Instrument and life partner is Daikoku.

Goddess of wisdom and justice, daughter of Zeus, and protector of the Earth. She was given this post in the Myth Age by her father Zeus, and her first war was against Poseidon for control of Attica.

This body is drawn in the same way as the statue of Athena, with brown hair and eyes.

Two human incarnations are known, respectively, from 1743 and 1986: Sasha (Lost Canvas), and the main one, that is Saori Kido. The incarnation of Sasha only exists in the spin-off manga Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, since in its parallel Next Dimension (canonical sequel to the original classic manga), Saori herself will travel through time to stop Hades in 1743, and it will discover that she exists another Athena who is not Sasha. The warriors of the goddess Athena are the 88 Saints of Athena.
