Bathymaas was emotionless so that she could be impartial as the goddess of justice; thus she often did not understand mortal ways. Other people were disconcerted by her questions and curiosity, but Aricles patiently explained everything to her. She accompanied him while he fished and began experiencing emotions while they spent time together. They eventually fell in love and married in secret.
Apollo was in love with Bathymaas, but she spurned him before and after she found Aricles. After one failed seduction, he took revenge by shooting her fiercest fighter, Aricles, in the chest with four arrows. He nearly died, but Bathymaas summoned her aunt Menyara to heal him. Apollo tried to rape Bathymaas on another occasion, but Aricles stopped him; Apollo retaliated by beating and raping Aricles. When Apollo found out that Aricles and Bathymaas were romantically involved, he blackmailed him by threatening to reveal their relationship to all the gods, which would damage Bathymaas’ reputation both as a virgin goddess and as an impartial judge. Apollo demanded that Aricles abstain from battles, which angered the other men in the Ēperon, especially after one of them died. Bathymaas claimed Aricles publicly when she learned about all of this.
