    replied to The Overthrow of Zeus: Specifics?
    A belief in the existence of a prophecy that one of Zeus' sons would kill him must have been at least reasonably widespread, since 11 years ago, fanfic author Thrythlind started an incomplete Oh, My Goddess/Ranma/Full Metal Panic/other x-over titled 'Divine Blood' which involved that prophecy.

One single dot in any Vitakenisis Mode unlocks Knit, which ensures you fully recover from any physical condition which doesn't kill you faster than Knit heals you, while your lifespan likely increases to an unknown degree.
