Oceanus refers to the ocean  which the Greeks and Roman thought of as life circling the world. Strictly speaking, it was the ocean-stream at the middle of earth in which floated the habitable hemisphere. In Greek mythology this world-ocean was personified as a Titan, a son of Uranus and Gaia. In ancient Greek beliefs this Titan is often described as having the upper body of a muscular man with a long beard and the lower body of a serpent.

He invented wine and spread the art of growing and harvesting grapes. He has a two faced nature. On the one hand bringing joy and devine ecstasy. On the other brutal, unthinking, rage. Thus, reflecting both sides of wines nature. If he choses Dionysus can drive a man insane. No normal fetters can hold him or his followers. His followers are the stayers they are hhalf men half goat people. They are completly of a diffrent nature the the centuars or the minituar.


Hyperion was one of the four Titan brothers who sided with Kronos in the dethronement of their father Ouranos, the former ruler of the universe. As the father of the sun and dawn, Hyperion was no doubt thought of as the Titan of the east. His brothers Koios, Krios and Iapetos presided respectively over the north, south and west. Hyperion's body was made of flames his eyes were like tiny, miniature suns. He wore armor made from the finest ancient Greek gold. He could have easily passed for a king.


Atlas was the son of Iapetus. Unlike his brothers Prometheus and Epimetheus, Atlas fought with the other Titans supporting Cronus against Zeus. Epimetheus could look in to the future and could tell that the young gods would overcome Cronus and his lame army. Due to Cronus's advance Atlas lead the unimportant titans in to battle the fought valiantly but lost in the end. He was singled out by Zeus for a special punishment and made to hold up the world or as some say the skies for all of eternity.

He argumentative to let any of his subjects leave the realm of the dead. He is also the god of wealth, due to the precious metals mined from the earth.

He is the King of the dead but, death himself is another god, Thanatos god of the dead. Thanatos was the Greek god of death. He plays little role in the myths. He became overshadowed by the lord of the dead Hades.

Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. She has a magical girdle that compels anyone she wishes to desire her. There are two accounts of her birth. One says she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. The other goes back to when Cronus castrated Uranus and tossed him into the sea. Aphrodite then arose from the sea on a silkily bed of sea foam then she walked to shore in Cyprus. She is the wife of Hephaestus. The only reason she is married to Hephaestus is because Zeus did not want a war to erupt over whose bride she wants to be. The myrtle is her tree. The dove, the swan, and the sparrow her birds.

Artiemis goddess of the hunt wild things and the moon. Artiemis is a goddess who asked her father Zeus when she was a little girl to never make her marry. Zeus tried to make her listen to reason but she was too stubborn. He couldn’t resist her radiant moon lit face so he swore on river Styx. That is the most solemn oath an immortal or god can make. A very interesting story of Artiemis is known threw any Greek mythology fan. A young hunter was hunting in the Amazon forests when he came upon the goddess Artiemis. He should have run or as some say he should have booked it. He was hunting with three dogs. Very hungry dogs Artiemis Turned him into an injured deer and spoke through her soft lips no mortal man shale ever see the goddess Artiemis bathe.


Hephaestus is the son of Zeus and Hera. It is said that he has no father. He is the only god to be physically ugly. He is cool in my opinion. The story about how he is the ugliest god is as how im about to tell you. Once upon a time....... there was a god that was born his name was Hephaestus. He was a very handsome god. One day Zeus and Hera were having one of their usual arguments. This was normal for a wife and husband on Olympus or as some say Olympia witch was acutely a city in Greece. Ok let’s get back to the story. Hephaestus thought his parents were serious. He stepped in between then Zeus flung him off Olympus and made him a crippled god. He is the god of fire and forges.

Apollo is the god of light music and poetry. His father gave him a chariot that was drawn by white swans. He set off to find and slay the python that guarded the oracle of Delphi. The oracle had told the python that a child of Zeus would come and slay him. He did not believe this because he killed every warrior who tried to rescue her. The oracle was mysterious. She sat on a tri legged stool. She barley spoke to anyone. She only spoke her predictions or shall I call it prophecies. The gods could have easily killed the python with a simple flick of the hand. But Zeus wanted his son to fulfill this task. So as Apollo grew up he was given a silver bow and a quiver of arrows that were as hard and piercing like the suns harmful rays. Then he decided it was time to slay the python and claim the oracle for his own. So he went to the lair of thee python and slayed it. But it was a challenge because he was a young god. Gods grew rapidly the would mature and become adults in a matter of days.

Zeus Vs Thor

Zeus is the god of thunder. Thor is the god of thunder. Ok they are both gods of thunder but who is stronger? They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Thor is the son of Odin god of everything. Zeus is the son of Kronos titan of the universe. So far its a pretty equal match up. Thor shots thunder out of his hammer. Also he has been defeated many times he has been saved by the Odin force some of his father’s energy. Zeus has never died and has never had to rely on his father because he hates his. To prove this match up has occurred I the marvel comic books before. Thor challenged Zeus, Zeus accepted the challenge then beat Thor senseless with his master lightning bolt. There you have it folks Zeus is the better god.

The Wild Centaurs

The centaurs were a race of wild half men, half horse. They had no ruler the had no laws or any sort of government. Sound's like a cool life to me. They kidnapped a lot of women and made them drunk just so they could party with them. The father of this race was Ixion a king who tried to carry off Hera and marry her. Zeus went into one of his every day rampages. Zeus had made the could to test the ungodliness of the king he married the could thinking it was the goddess Hera. What a foolish man he then mated with the could witch is kind of weird. Then out came of the could came the centaurs. They weren’t the first centaurs

The Titan Prometheus

Prometheus was the titan who created humans as a gift for the gods and goddesses of Olympus. The gods were selfish. The first humans were freezing for they had no fire. The god did not want to give their precious fire to the humans. It was the one thing the gods could have that the humans couldn’t besides power and imortality. So Prometheus could not bear to see his creations die off so quickly so he did the humans a favor by stealing a piece of the legendary and sacred fire. He gave it to the humans and told them to never let it go out. When Zeus herd this news he was furious. He tied the titan to a rock and sent an eagle every night to pick his liver out and eat it. This was very painful he grew his liver back at night and at day the eagle would come down again. this continued for hundreds of years until Hercules released him out of pity. Zeus was so proud of his son he forgot to chain up the titan again.

Zeus is the son of Kronos and Rhea. He was the one who was not eaten by his father. Zeus was forged a lightning bolt by the Cyclopes that could shake the earth and destroy any enemy. Poseidon was forged a trident that could split the seas. Also Hades was forged a helmet of invisibility. Together the beat the other titans with the help of the Cyclopes and their brothers the hundred arm ones. Zeus had chopped Kronos in pieces with his own scythe.


Ares god of war is the ultimate fighter. He is a son of Zeus and Hera he is a merciless god he shows no mercy. His mother strongly dislikes him because every time he is wounded in battle ha runs up to Olympus howling and screaming until he is healed. Gods can be wounded but not killed that is a fact because of the immortal ichor that flows through their veins. This god can control people at anytime. He can even force them to commit suicide he is the most evil god aside from Hades as far as I can tell.

Poseidon god of the seas earthquakes and horses.He created the first horse in the shape of a crashing wave. He did some weired stuff during his life it turns out he dated one of the horrible looking gorgans named medusa.
