Herakles, or Hercules, is the most famous Godborn in history. Son of Zeus, and blessed with incredible physical prowess, Herakles had a troubled and violent life, but wherever he went he accomplished feats of such incredible fame that they resonate to this day. Nevertheless, Herakles never let his divine roots go to his head, being one of the most human and humble Godborns of the Theoi. The only number greater than the enemies he accumulated was the number of friends and companions he made along the way, his charismatic, optimistic attitude shining like an aura around him.

Upon his death orchestrated by the centaur Nessus, he ascended to Godhood. Now one of the Olympians, he uses his limitless strength and influence as the greatest of Zeus' Godborns to watch over the descendants of his many former companions.

Herakles' Godborn tend to be brash, loud, violent, tortured, but ultimately good-natured. They carry the weight of their power and responsibility with pride but also with care, and tend to continually fall into deadly situations while always coming out unscathed. They rarely hold a position of actual responsibility - and if they do, they usually fail at it quite spectacularly. These Godborns have worked as soldiers of fortune, adventurous explorers, athletes, charismatic actors, or talkative bartenders. Herakles loves for his children deeply, and loves for their human mothers just as much - some say too much. Herakles' love for humanity has been criticized among the Olympians, and many older Gods see him as still a youngster, unappreciative of the honor of having become a God.
