Eros Cupid Cherub

Eros (Ἔρως in Ancient Greek) is the god of sexual love and beauty. In Ancient Greece he was worshipped as a fertility deity. His Roman counterpart is Cupid. He is the son of Aphrodite and Ares. He is also husband to Psyche

History

Eros is the god of love, seduction, and pleasure. He is the son of Aphrodite with Ares, though many suspect that Cupid was fathered by Zeus or Hermes (though Hermes and Aphrodite already had a son, Hermaphroditus).

Eros and Psyche

When Eros' mother Aphrodite became jealous of Psyche, a woman that was admired so much for her looks that Aphrodite's subjects forget to pray for her name. She ordered Eros to make Psyche fall in love with the vilest monster in the world, in order to reclaim her people. However, while Eros was making an attempt to shoot her, it is told that he either scratches himself with his arrow or he falls in love with Psyche, dazzled by her godlike beauty. Eros, unable to resist the charm of Psyche, reports back to her mother, telling her that he has failed the task. Aphrodite is angered by this news and she lays a curse of Psyche, wishing that she would never be able to find a suitable husband. This decision of his mother upsets Eros greatly, and he refuses to shoot any more arrows as long as the curse is on Psyche, causing the Temple of Aphrodite to fall. To prevent the Earth from dying and her name to be completely forgotten, Aphrodite finally accepts to release the curse and let her son marry Psyche. She is given immortality by Zeus, and is made the goddess of pleasure and soul.
