The new Greek paradigm is the modern pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses, carefully selected for their suitability in keeping the worship and adoration of those who worship them without needless chaos and drama.

Canon Keeper's Note: If you are interested in dealing with the Greek/Roman pantheon, please speak to both the Sailor Moon and New Greek Paradigm canon keepers so that we can determine what's possible.

How it Came About

Long before the downfall of the Greek civilization, the goddess Athena foresaw it, and came up with a plan to keep Olympus going in new ages. When the time came, she announced it to the others of the Olympian Court, and gained their support as the only way to survive into the future. However, she did not tell them that she only planned to revive those parties which lent stability.

When Kore began to pray for an escape from her underground home, Athena saw this as a great opportunity to aid in her plan, and thus turned the girl to stone via Medusa's head, which was affixed to her shield. When the girl was awakened--albeit far more forward in time than Athena anticipated--and began writing stories as directed, Athena was able to orchestrate the awakening of herself and several others of her choosing to begin with, setting herself up as the new head of the pantheon.
