Burgerclops: God of Food & Drink

click to enlarge burgerclops.jpg

Fear not the gruesome Burgerclops; though his deformed visage suggests a hideous monster, in truth he is a kindly giant seeking only to bring sustenance to the masses. He befriended the mighty dinosaur, assisted Sinbad and Aladdin on their journeys, and helped to merge the two vines. Legend says that should you get too deep in your cups in the early hours of the morn, he can be spied eating a garbage plate at Nick Tahou’s.

Guitartemis: God of Arts & Entertainment

click to enlarge Guitartemis.jpg

Seeking to liven up his fair city, raucous Guitartemis placed the mile stones that lead to a place of great noise and harmony. He harvested the uncle plums, shredded his axe on the papercut ninjas, and made way for the Lion King. In one of his more contemplative moods he strung the great clothesline and gathered together both writers and books. Verily, we owe him much applause. Party on, Guitartemis! Party on…

Persperia: Goddess of Sports & Recreation

click to enlarge Persperia.jpg

Glorious Persperia sprang fully formed from the head of Rochestecles, blasting her lats even as she first touched down upon this earthly plane at the very athletic center of Rochester. She set about on her divine mission to bring health and fitness to the Flower City, and in her many travels flew with the red wings, swam with the razor sharks, and ran with the raging rhinos.

Rochestecles: God of Rochester

click to enlarge Broadcasticus.jpg

Heed these words: The great Rochestecles built the Flower City by gathering powerful allies: the multiplying Xerox, the all-seeing twins Bausch and Lomb, and Kodak the Developer. And it was good, indeed. Seeing his city prosper, Rochestecles turned his attention to other matters. But now as the city faces many trials --- cinching by the fearsome Rust Belt, the deleterious effects of the Brain Drain, and even the tenacious many-headed Ferry Monster --- Rochestecles has returned. He needs only his people’s faith to restore his city to its rightful glory.
