Looks: Well-toned female body, classy curves, long wavy hair, honey-blushed skin, a pair of white swan wings and graceful movements like a ballerina.
Like all Gods born of Gaia, Mother Earth, I have the ability to change my appearance at will. Unlike other Gods, I never utilise this power to disguise myself. However, people's view of me may alter according to their perception.
The common perception of me is that of a strongly-built young female with fanning wings, who retains the gracefulness of movement and balance that is exhibited by a ballerina.
My dresses vary according to the events, ceremonies and festivals I attend. This said, my daily wear is either a flowing dress, called a peplos, or a white tunic, called a chiton, that contrasts with my honey blushed skin. The draping lines of the dress or tunic are gathered by a green band sashed at my waist and I wear a belt below my breasts to accentuate my curves. Sometimes I wear a mantle, called a himaton, over my shoulders and loose at the hips. I wear a banded tiara of gold and green on my head and my feet are adorned with distinctive golden sandals. In motion, I am said to appear as a dazzle of gold and white light as I fly through the air with my wings spread.
I am also found with many items of ritual significance, for example: an olive branch, wreath or crown called a kotinos; a palm branch; musical instruments, such as a lyre and reeded flute; a vessel called a phial; a bowl for libations called an oinochoe; an incense burner called a thymiaterion; and other symbolic items such as Kronos' horn, Hermes' staff and Athena's Torch of Enlightenment. I do use all of these items from time to time but more often than not I carry nothing but my small, sharp, shining blade bestowed on me by my father Pallas.
All Gods have small wings protruding from their shoulder blades. I, too, had small wings but, after the events revealed in the Nike Story, I acquired a beautiful pair of swan wings. In artistic representations of the Gods, most of the Gods had lost their wings by the Classical period. However, artists continue, to this day, to portray my beloved swan wings; I thank them for it and I hope the sight of them lifts you too.
