I have presented Mars as a modern amazon (member of a tribe of women warriors) and have combined her with the figure of Eris (in Latin: Discordia), goddess of strife and dischord, who is often portrayed as a winged creature. Eris indirectly caused the Trojan war which was the longest and bloodiest armed conflict in Greek mythology, and it was as much a battle of gods as of humans. It was Ares (Greek model for Mars) who drove the Trojans into war and fought on their side. The attire of Goddess Mars is a combination of dark red, the colour of blood and passion and black, the colour of death and mourning.

So I did a little research on the web and came across the following:
"The pantheon of the Romans and the Greeks consisted largely of the same or similar gods, but there is a distinct difference between Mars and Ares. The not so well respected Ares was the god of actual combat and the destruction that followed, and he needed the guidance of the wise goddess Athena to not destroy everything. Mars on the other hand embodied both, and (as expressed in his romance with Venus) became the god of peace by means of military superiority. This explains why Mars could also be the god of husbandry, of shepherds and seers."

"According to Lewis and Short A Latin Dictionary, the name Mars is a contracted form of the older name Mavors... Mavors was The Turner Of The Battle, but it seems that Mavors or Mars rather turned the battle to peace than peace to battle."
Source:
The amazing name Mars: meaning and etymology


So, given Mars is a being that represented prudence in military might and turned battle towards peace, I have equipped my Goddess Mars with both a sword and a rose. The sword to represent the might and will to fight for what is worth protecting, and the rose to represent the wisdom that all life is sacred and to seek peace in the midst of the tumult.

I also like the feathered headdress that is a bit reminiscent of a Valkyrie helm... a nod to the female warriors of Norse Mythology. As this Mars is a Goddess and not a God, I felt it appropriate.

aahouuuu ^^
I tried to represent Mars as the roman God of the war with his sword and he wears in one hand his spear and the head of Meduse in the other hand, not easy ...
Very nice theme :)

My lady's name is Ease.

The concept behind this outfit is the allure of the Goddess. A Goddess don't have to wear heavy armor to command the loyalty of her subjects.

The flowing robe symbolizes the grace of the Goddess while the open neck signifies her allure. The web-like links along her shoulders and webbed heels are temptation for mankind. The feather headpiece and wings are symbols of fire, power and temper, and the black misty things behind the wings symbolizes darkness present in every human. The golden belt and the linings along her robe are evidences of her grandeur.

Well, I don't have sword, shield or wolves so I had to skip those
:P

Lady Name: Donnajdya

I choose green which is the color of life and nature and as the God of Mars is an agricultural guardian I wanted my lady to represent growth, fertility and the environment. The blue is for her intelligence, confidence and faith; the black shows her as defender and protector. The wolf is a sacred animal to Mars and is a sign of victory.
