i mean what if the goddess just wants to marry someone stronger than her?
Fan-girl detected! Well, would you willingly marry someone who beat the crap out of you and basically steals your money?I think this is a good enough analogy in real life.

And if he wasn't a real person, do the events happening in myths and legends count as "real"? I'm not really clear on whether the Gods always exist, just in another realm, or they are just imaginary figures that have the nasty habit of spontaneously erupting from the collective human imagination into reality. Or is there no real difference?

Anyway, back to the rape thing, even if was "unwilling", if the Gods aren't really "real", then can you actually say that something that happened in the stories actually happened? So if Perseus never existed, then he really couldn't have raped Andromeda, as it never actually happened.

My apologies if I'm not being clear.
I don't know if Perseus was really a person. No one can tell you that. Heretic gods can be created by pure imaginations. As for whether Perseus was a Campione? Nope. He's not, because he was Mithra, the Persian Sun God prior to him becoming known as Perseus.
