In all Western cultures that I am familiar with the god of war was/is a common player. Historical anthropologists might tell you that this type of god is probably one of the very oldest present in any antique civilization. This makes sense since Mars, Ares, Hoor (Horus) has always been a cipher for Energy in its rawest and most immediate manifestation. The color red, blood, and life are other traditional associations of this god.
