Sailor 'Ares' Mars by WereLeopard Sailor 'Ares' Mars by WereLeopard
Ancient Gods are awakening, and they want to teach a lesson to the humans. But after a long sleep, they don't have enough stregth on their own. They have to find bodies that are similar to their powers.
:bulletred: Ares takes the lead with burning fury against the humans 'cause of their disrespect.

Sailor Moon have to fight against her friends...
Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Saturn unable to fight against the mighty opponents, so everythings up to Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask to bring their friends back, and convince the ancient Gods to give humanity another chance.


This is my first entry for :iconsilverstar-aanti:'s 'Dark Side of a Senshi' contest.

I choose Mars because she's my favourite character in Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. :heart:
So, Sailor Mars lovers in the world. This pic is all yours!! :iconlaplz:

:bulletwhite: Wiki-attack :bulletwhite:
Ares is the Greek god of war. He is one of the Twelve Olympians, and the son of Zeus and Hera. In Greek literature, he often represents the physical or violent aspect of war, in contrast to the armored Athena, whose functions as a goddess of intelligence include military strategy and generalship.
The Greeks were ambivalent toward Ares: although he embodied the physical valor necessary for success in war, he was a dangerous force, "overwhelming, insatiable in battle, destructive, and man-slaughtering." Fear (Phobos) and Terror (Deimos) were yoked to his battle chariot. In the Iliad his father Zeus tells him that he is the god most hateful to him. An association with Ares endows places and objects with a savage, dangerous, or militarized quality. His value as a war god is even placed in doubt: during the Trojan War, Ares was on the losing side, while Athena, often depicted in Greek art as holding Nike (Victory) in her hand, favored the triumphant Greeks.
Ares plays a relatively limited role in Greek mythology as represented in literary narratives, though his numerous love affairs and abundant offspring are often alluded to. When Ares does appear in myths, he typically faces humiliation. He is well known as the lover of Aphrodite, the goddess of love who was married to Hephaestus, god of craftsmanship, but the most famous story involving the couple shows them exposed to ridicule through the wronged husband's clever device.
The counterpart of Ares among the Roman gods is Mars, who as a father of the Roman people held a more important and dignified place in ancient Roman religion for his agricultural and tutelary functions. During the Hellenization of Latin literature, the myths of Ares were reinterpreted by Roman writers under the name of Mars. Greek writers under Roman rule also recorded cult practices and beliefs pertaining to Mars under the name of Ares. Thus in the classical tradition of later Western art and literature, the mythology of the two figures becomes virtually indistinguishable.

:spotlight-left: In these 'Ancient Gods' Sailor Scout ideas I use various Roman and Greek clothings, so please don't wonder when I use a Roman God name and still use a Greek outfit or vice versa. Thank you! :heart:
