This thread is for fictional characters in literature - mythology - history
Who was Aphrodite's son. (This can be a trick question, don't confuse your Greek and Roman)
Steve, looks like we're the only ones "into" the trivia thing here, LOL
I loved the mythology part of my senior year English class and while my memory seems to fail me right now, I do remember Aphrodite is a Greek goddess and her Roman counterpart is Venus, and she is the Goddess of Love.
And since you listed the Greek name, I'm gonna say the answer you're looking for is EROS
Besides, it's the only name I can remember right now, LOL, other than the main gods
Thanks to "Clash of the Titans", I do remember another name..................
What gorgon did Perseus slay and why?

Sorry this answer is a little complicated and I hesitated to answer because i only had about half the Correct answer.
You mentioned "clash or the titans" so based on that, I'll give the "clash of the titans" answer, which I did know.
According to the movie, he killed Medusa in order to kill the Kraken; the only problem with that is that, the Kraken was not part of Greek mythology; it was Norse mythology, and was only part of the story, in the movie.
That much I knew but wasn't sure what the actual reason was for his killing Medusa; so I looked it up and found that it was to fulfill his obligation for a wedding present to his step father.
I'm not sure which answer you were going for, but since you mentioned 'Clash of the titians" I figure, the part I did know, answers the question - BTW I own that movie lol.
So, my question:
Since we are nearing Halloween...
Who was the central character that was persecuted by the headless horseman in the story "the Legend of Sleepy hallow"
Ok, who is the author of the 1897 novel "Dracula" (not fair lookin any of these up..)
Bram Stoker - which btw is one of my fave books - I read it recently and I was wow-ed by it!
What book was the movie "Apocalypse Now" based on? (another fave of mine!)
"Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad! GREAT book, btw
