I am sorry for write less things about some Olympians (Demeter for example) but I don't know so much about all Olympians and I want this post to give just some basic things about Them.

There is an excellent website at http://www.theoi.com/ with good information on the Greek gods, Greek mythology, etc. Anyone who is interested in pursuing information on the Olympians would gain benefit from spending some time on this site.

Demeter? I know a few things about her. Here's a myth. This why winter exists. At one point the earth was always warm no winter. Demeter had a daughter named Persephone (roman name. Proserpine). Persephone was the goddess of spring. As such she was a beautiful as spring is. She caught the eye of hades. He asked Zeus to give Persephone to him as a bride. Zeus agreed, as Zeus was Persephone's father. Then hades kidnapped her. Demeter with grief made the land cold and bare while searching for her. When she found out that hades kidnapped her, she demanded that Persephone be returned. She was by Hermes, but not after she had ate the food of the underworld so she stays there half the year, thus winter and fall happen. This is the story of how the seasons come to be.
