The greatest warrior of the Trisdekatheon, Polumachos care only for the battlefield. While the rest of the gods drink ambrosia, his cups runs over with the blood spilled in war. A hulking deity with skin of red iron and a short beard, Polumachos cares little for who is victorious in battle. Instead, all that matters to him is that battle takes place and no mercy is given. With a sword taken from the hand of a dying Titan, Polumachos clothes himself in metal adorned with the faces of the agonized. He cares nothing for construction, only for destruction. Despite this, he is placated by the advances of Cytherea, despite her marriage to Purosphuros. Left to his own devices, Polumachos would inspire the cities to war with one another for his own satiation, but merely stirs arguments from his throne for the time being. Among his faithful are the legions of soldiers who make offerings of oxen, cattle, and wolves to his altars. Those rare few who can be trusted to be vessels of pure war and wrath are made the mighty Antipaladins, vessels of destruction, fear, and wrath and potent vehicles of the god of war’s ire. Though his Antipaladins are ultimately loyal to the thrones of the gods, they would not hesitate if their god commanded them to burn another deity’s temple or slaughter their priests. Clergy of the God of War adorn themselves in blood red cloth under black metal. Cups of blood are passed between them as the sacrifices burn, and though they are feared for their rage, cities feel better knowing that the unyielding warriors of Polumachos will rise to defend their city with a wrath no mortal can hold for long.
