I am dissecting my dictionary to no avail for a word which would fit the context of how in Roman and Greek Mythology the mighty gods when challenged in one of their many magnificent talents, even at the subtlest level would become furious with jalousie and thus ruin the mortal who barely even compared for being good at whatever it was they were (when compared to a god) meekly exceptional in, (but when compared to mortals) like gods in.
In fewer words, what is a word which would bring to the thought that jealousy or that feeling of threat to your own greatness by another's trivially opposing attributes?
the destruction of beauty because of one's arrogant blindness which breeds feelings of being threatened.
For example: "why would so majestic a faculty in a mortal's rays be slaughtered by a god's _____"
(A word that would express what I regarded above)
p.s. I apologize for my example being rather poetic but I thought a poetic example would be more fit since I am indeed asking of this for a poem.
