Macaria by Arbetta Macaria by Arbetta
From my tumblr :P [link]

Macaria, known as the Goddess of Blessed Death, is a daughter of Hades mentioned in the Suda.

She guarantees you a peaceful trip to the afterlife, which it is not bad at all! :meow: Her mother is not mentioned in the ancient texts, though I like to think she’s a legitimate daughter of Hades and Persephone, and a sister to dark Melinoe. She’s not very well known but some people asked for a drawing of her. In my imagination, she inherited the manners and light atmosphere of her mother and is a friendly ghost maiden :dummy:

Macaria is also the name of one of Heracles’s daughters. Maybe I’ll draw her in the future, as her story is very interesting and is related to Persephone in some way... (everything makes sense! :nod:)

Happy New Year! It's good to be back! :aww: Now I have to finish two commissions and get back to work hehe :D By the way, I hope you like this. It's kinda a companion piece to this: [link]

Psssst: Only three Muses left and I'll post them! ;)

What does the Goddess of Blessed death DO? I imagine, JUST LIKE THE AUTHOR SAYS ABOVE, that "She guarantees you a peaceful trip to the afterlife.." Macaria is The Goddess of BLESSED Death, not just the Goddess of Death, so I am thinking she is a friendly, feminine  (or total opposite)version of a "Grim" Reaper.

You mean, what does a "blessed death" is? I really don't know... I suppose it's a really honourable and dignified death, or maybe a quiet and peaceful one, maybe? :aww: Macaria takes the soul quietly and happily, I picture her that way ;)

Did you think Macaria and Thanatos ever hang out or ending up together?
