You think you know the Gods and Goddesses of Olympus...and, ok, you probably do. But you don't know Eris.

Sure, take a second and Google her. Not much there, right? A minor Olympian? Nyx's daughter? Did she really start the Trojan War? 

Whatever you've heard, forget it. Eris is here to set the record straight.
  
It's modern-day and our Goddess is slummin' on a couch in Manhattan smokin' a joint and drunk on wine. She has little care for Olympus or her flighty, frivolous, frolicking siblings who have grossly fallen out of fashion. 
  
With a chip on the shoulder the size of Jupiter, she returns to Olympus at the behest of Zeus who dangles the promise of a prophecy in front of her; glory, fame, fortune, notoriety. 

But, there's a catch. There's always a catch when you're dealing with Greek gods. What happens when a mortal, on a planet far, far away, steals one of the gods' powers for his own? Sure, Eris could kill him, but that wouldn't make for a very interesting story.
