He spoke and awful bends his sable brows,
Shakes his ambrosial curls and gives the nod,
The stamp of fate and sanction of the god.
High heaven with reverence the dread signal took,
And all Olympus to the centre shook.

— Homer

Zeus is the all powerful king of the gods. After overthrowing his father Cronus, Zeus drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades to become supreme ruler of the gods. Zeus won. He became the Lord of the Sky, the rain god, and the cloud gatherer. His weapon of choice is his mighty thunderbolt and his wife of choice is Hera (and whoever else that catches his eye, much to her disapproval). Zeus is the strongest of the gods, although not always the wisest, and when he speaks of his wife Hera one might think him more a fearful hen pecked husband than the Ruler of Olympia. He likes his followers to practice the skills of brawling, weapon use, and holy rituals and also encourages physical training.

Zeus favors training in Brawling, Weapons, and Rituals. He disfavors training in Mechanical Knowledge and Arcane Knowledge. His symbol is the lightning bolt and eagle feathers, oak leaves, and rubies are often sacrificed to him.
