Case File: Commendation: Hestia to Dionysus

Police Reports

Case Description: Way back in the day, Hestia was one of the original Twelve Olympians, a place of real honor. But when Dionysus came along and got super popular, she graciously decided to let him take her place.

Addendum: We're guessing the homebody, Hestia, didn't really approve of the god of wine's wild ways. But she was really easygoing so she probably just did this to avoid trouble.
