Many names I've been given, both masculine and feminine. On occasion I am warlike, a protector and kingly, and at times I can be the source of all creation. I often scorch mortals; one's wings of wax I did destroy. At times I gladden their minds. Keeping my distance, I console those whom I fought before; they feel my kindness as they once felt my wrath when, after such suffering, I soothe their lives.

What am I?

I found it simple, but its mostlyu the wings of wax that made it easy for me, as I recognize the myth.
