Special Agent DePaul, an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., was eventually revealed to be an agent of Ares, the Greco-Roman god of war. Although Agent DePaul had served S.H.I.E.L.D. well, in the end it seems clear that his true loyalties were with Ares.

DePaul agreed to help Ares in the war god's plot to take possession of the Heart of Athena. Ares wanted to use this powerful artifact to build his Gabriel's Horn, so that he could eradicate all of Earth's technology, except for some key pieces of technology that he himself would control. Ares thus hoped to gain control and power, possibly ruling the Earth. Did DePaul go along with all of this purely for material gain or the possibility of acquiring personal power, or was he a sincere follower of Ares in a religious sense?
