Default Scion Question

Hello. I've got Scion, it's an Onyx Path game were you play the child (adoptive or biological) of a God.

So, which god is your divine parent and what are you planing to become God of?

I play Scion. My character's father is Apollo, and plans on becoming the God of Justice.

I ran a few campaigns in the first edition and bought the second edition. I am not a fan of many of the changes, though expanding the types of scions offers interesting possibilities. The fact that a deity can adopt a mortal creature as a scion offer interesting possibilities, as does the ability of a deity to make a non-living object into a living scion.

If I was playing 2nd edition scion, I think that I would want to be one of the created. Perhaps an old teddy bear that was transformed into a living scion in order to defend children from supernatural predators. Their patron might be Brigid, as she also defends the young, with them becoming a specific Deity of Children under the Celtic pantheon.

Summanus because I'm an edgy hipster and I think I'm too good for all those gods you "plebes" have heard of. I'm planning to become god of night terrors.

If even Ovid didn't get your Dad, how can the rest of us be impressed? Still, fun choice.
