Zeus is the god of sky and thunder and the ruler of the Olympians of Mount Olympus. The name Zeus is cognate with the first element of Roman Jupiter, and Zeus and Jupiter became closely identified with each other.
Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he is married to his sister Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort is Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione.

Zeus is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Persephone (by Demeter), Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen of Troy, Minos, and the Muses (by Mnemosyne); by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus, and sometimes Eris.
Many of Zeus' sexual partners were relatives including grandmother, mother, aunt, sister, daughter, and niece. Many of the rest were married. Many of Zeus' seductions or rapes were performed while the god was in animal form.
The Discordian scholar Otherlleft wrote that Zeus is the "Greatest slut the Divine has ever produced, and guardian of morality to boot."

In 1981, Zeus (possibly in the form of Paganus Grimlove) with Alien formed the Ĕk-sĕn-trĭks Cluborguild at Mt. Santa Juanita College. The club or guild's purpose as stated in its constitution was "the participatorial study of comedic attitudes and eccentric tendencies.” While the club was honored by the college during its first year as Most Active New Club on Campus, the two founders were formally charged. The group began the tongue-in-cheek Order of the Pineapple. Reverend Loveshade's mother Bonnie (known in the club as Moondancer) was a charter member of the group. Loveshade later formed the Discordian Division of the Ek-sen-triks CluborGuild.
