Ares was the Greek god of war. He wore armour, carried weapons, and looked vigorous and buff. He thought and fought with his body and his heart, not his mind, and did not see war as a game. The Greeks feared him for the irrational battle frenzies (berserker rages) he could go into, while the Romans appreciated him for his skill as their protector. Ares didn't start wars (though he was a brawler), but repeatedly came to the aid of armies he believed in, joining the fighting and encouraging flagging soldiers. It was his courageous strength soldiers in the field turned to during combat. Being very physical, Ares was also known as a dancer and a lover, particularly as the long term lover of Aphrodite, who was quite happy with him. Ares had many children, not only with Aphrodite, but also in other longterm relationships with women (he didn't just seduce women once then leave them like other gods did), and was protective of his kids.
Modern Ares are equally physical. They think with their bodies and are drawn to action and intensity. They are intense, impulsive and explosive, often with great physical power and strength. Their feelings tend to boil over easily into action. Rough diamonds, they tend to be private, laid back and casual, preferring hanging out with other men in blue collar or sporting environments, bonding in shared activities, to dressing up and being seen. They often play sports as well as watch them, especially agressive sports like football or hockey (they need the exercise). They work well on teams of equals, motivating each other while thriving on the competition. Ares also think with their hearts. They can be loyal and generous, and naturally protective of people they care about. They look after their own. Ares like women as women, though they are not typically marriage minded. (They tend not to think that far ahead.) Ares are also great with kids, very physical with them, and very protective.
