Laran is the god of war and bloodlust in Etruscan mythology. He was typically portrayed as a naked youth wearing a helmet and carrying a spear, and was associated with fire and the Sun. He was the lover of Turan, goddess of love, beauty and fertility; Laran himself was the Etruscan equivalent of the Greek god Ares (Mars in Roman mythology).
