The above is more like the early days, a few decades pass, people from our Earth establish settlements on this Venus. Earth settlers are quite outnumbered by natives, as travel between planets through space is expensive, Earth humans are still learning to deal with magic. Aphrodite has ensconced herself amount the settler population, she can change her appearance as required for what she wants to accomplish. The settlers don't know she is there. Aphrodite's palace has been turned into a spaceport, as the settlers still don't know who built it, there is a city of around ten thousand people built at the base of that mountain, this is where most of the off-worlders live.
