It has been said that the 12 Cylon models represent the 12 basic facets of humanity. What if those, along the lines of this post, were analogous to the 12 Olympian gods/Lords of Kobol?

We have:

Eight - Demeter, the warm mother figure, whose child is stolen from her.
Six - Aphrodite, hot as hell, but not necessarily on your side.
Leoben - Ares, warlike and rash.
Simon - Apollo, the healer.
Five - Hermes, the messenger.
Three - Athena. Not certain about this one, but journalist/schemer might fit in with the goddess of wisdom and crafts.

Remaining unknowns are:
(Depending on who you choose as your twelve. I don't know that we have that information on the Lords of Kobol yet.)

One more Cylon has been revealed to us in the season 2 finale. I forget his name, but he's the elderly priest from whom Tyrol receives counseling. My knowledge of Roman mythology is rusty, so I'm not sure who he would represent.
This is a very interesting observation, to be sure.

What about Brother Cavil?
That is, Dean Stockwell's character? Since he professes disdain for religion and the conventional wisdom that surrounds it, might his analogue be Hades? Hm
