Alala is the Goddess of the Battle Cry. Her father is Polemos, a Greek war spirit. Father and daughter travel in Ares’ entourage. The name Alala is the sound of the battle cry (screaming her name manifests her), but it may also be literally interpreted as “speechless.” The battle cry emerges when someone is pushed past the point of being verbally articulate.

Alala is a protective guardian (at least for those whom she favors). Alala likes to haunt old battlegrounds and may be found there. Alternatively call her when you need her. Be aware that she may arrive with an entire host of battle spirits.

You can hear Alala on the television series Xena: Warrior Princess, where her name is Xena’s battle cry.
