Dike (/ˈdiːkeɪ/ IPA, Δηκε in Olympian) is the Greek Goddes of Mortal Law, presiding over the legal matters of mortals under divine rule. Despite her position she's completely ineffectual in her job, allowing gods to do as they pleased and mortals to rebel against them.
Dike is one of the oldest children of Zeus, born before his marriage to Hera. She seems to be very close to her mother Themis and to have an intense dislike of Vesta.
Immortality: Dike does not age; she has kept her current apparent age for thousands of years.
Flight: Dike can lift her own body telekinetically. It's unknown if she can travel faster than light.
Invulnerability: By placing a mental lock on her molecular structure, Dike can prevent her body from being harmed.
Godlike strength: Dike is as strong as she thinks she is.
Godlike stamina: Dike doesn’t need to eat, drink or sleep.
Universal translator: Dike can understand any language instantly. People around her will have the same ability, but it will fade over time without prolonged contact.
