Venus can take any appearance she chooses. She has a playful sense of humour which will often see her take the most awkward face possible. Her appearance is always accompanied by the scent of apples and roses and a faint rosy hue. Her prime talent is the ability to wield glamour: her illusions of appearance, when applied to either herself or other people, are pretty perfect, and only distinguished by their consistently unlikely degree of attractiveness. According to myth, if the glamour she uses to conceal her 'real' appearance should slip, no human would survive the sight.
For a goddess, she's pretty indolent. It's not often she can be bothered interfering in the lives of her acolytes. If the mood takes her, she will offer to avenge romantic wrongs or step in to protect them from the consequences of actions taken out of love.
