The Titans were a race of gods who ruled the world before the Olympian Gods. Their leader was Cronus, but when Hades released them from prison Tartarus, he became their new leader. Titans fell from power after they lost the war against the Olympian Gods. Titans represent the chaos rule the world, as the Olympian Gods represent the rule of order in the world.
In the beginning, when the world was new, there was Gaia ("Mother Earth") Ancient Goddess of the Earth. She was the first generation of Gods. Then, she gave birth to a new generation of Gods, the Titans. They all included the following: Cronus, Stratos, Hydros, Pyros, Lythos, Cyclops, Atlas, Prometheus, Typhon, Echidna, Antaeus, Briareos, Helios, and Hecate. They were gigantic brutes, who ran amok. The world was a disgusting place at the time. Where chaos regined, and where earthquakes and volcanoes never slept. But then, Zeus, son of Cronus, hurled his thunderbolt, and defeated the Titans. Lythos, Hydros, Pyros, Stratos, and Cyclops were imprisoned in the seas of the Underworld. Cronus, their king, was trap in an unknown region of the Underworld. Typhon was sealed away under Mount Etna. Atlas was cursed by the Olympian Gods to forever hold up the Sky at the Edge of the World. Prometheus was chained to a mountain in the Underworld, where the Caucasian Eagle would feast on his liver, every day. However, Antaeus, Briareos, Echidna, Helios, and Hecate were spared from eternal punishment. But some Titans, including: Antaeus and Echidna, still hold hard feelings towards the Olympian Gods.
