Historical Background

Ares

In Greek mythology, Ares is the god of war. His parents are Zeus (god of weather, king of the gods) and Hera (goddess of marriage, queen of the gods). He is one of the Olympians (Greek gods). Ares governed bloodlust as well and his personality in Greek literature is described as savage, cruel, aggressive, and bloodthirsty, with both mortals and gods disapproving of his conduct. He wielded a spear, shield, and crested helmet. Animals he is associated with are the dog and the vulture. He had a quadriga (chariot) driven by 4 fire-breathing horses. The Romans identified Ares with their god of war, Mars.

Cuirass

A cuirass (from the Latin coriaceus, meaning made of leather, and further from the Latin word corium which was a leather breastplate), is the plate armor formed of a single piece of metal or other rigid material or composed of two or more pieces, which covers the front of the wearer's person. In a suit of armor, however, since this important piece was generally worn in connection with a corresponding defence for the back, the term cuirass commonly is understood to imply the complete body-armor, including both the breast and the back plates. Thus this complete body armor appears in the Middle Ages frequently to have been described as a pair of plates. A related item, the Corselet, is a comparatively light cuirass.
