Why hello, hello, there, little godling. I have to say you're quite the specimen, and so, I've decided I shall aid you for the moment. You interested?
~ Aphrodite

Aphrodite is the Olympian Goddess of love and beauty. She offers boons to Zagreus that inflict her signature Status Curse, Weak, or make enemies more susceptible to damage.

Aphrodite boons not only increase your damage, but also your survivability, making enemy attacks less effective as you fight them. Due to Weak effects being easy to inflict, Aphrodite also enables synergy with the Mirror of Night Upgrade, Privileged Status.

Her signature Status Curse is Weak, which reduces the damage afflicted enemies do by 30%. Aphrodite also offers boons which increase the effectiveness of her Status Curse itself, such as Empty Inside (which increases the effect's duration).

Aphrodite is one of four Olympian gods (the other three being Artemis, Demeter and Zeus) who will not appear in the very first run of a save.

Affinity[edit | edit source]

If given Nectar, Aphrodite will give you the Eternal Rose.

Aphrodite's affinity gauge is maxed out at 7 hearts, requiring the gifting of 6 Nectar and 1 Ambrosia.

Favor[edit | edit source]

Aphrodite's favor requires Zagreus to illustrate his capacity for love, both platonically and passionately, by forging bonds with Dusa, Thanatos and Megaera.

Codex Entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png
'...Aphrodite wields her beauty and her charm with much the same lethality as I could wield the spear. I have seen her handiwork first-hand, and it is often not as pretty as she is. I sometimes think that she, among all the Olympians, may be the mightiest of all. A crashing wave or thundering tempest are preferable to a broken heart. Yet, while love's the force that brought me and countless others low in life, it also brought me and countless others strength, beyond the bounds of normal men. Still I fear that Aphrodite's power is the most terrible in all the world.'
