|God of Victory|
Description[edit | edit source]
Iroas is the god of honor and victory in war. He is thought to take the form of a centaur, though his lower half is that of a bull. He governs both personal valor and bravery in battle, and thus he also governs warfare. He is twin to Mogis, god of slaughter, who commands the dark and brutal side of war, and the two spar constantly. Iroas is worshipped mostly in Akros, and is apparently its patron. He established the Iroan Games in that city's arena.

Inspiration[edit | edit source]
The character of Iroas is inspired by Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and War, and Nike, Goddess of Victory. He is also inspired by Chiron, immortal centaur, teacher of many heroes. His name was likely taken from the Modern Greek word ήρωας (íroas), meaning hero.
