Zeus (God of War)
My Brothers. We were forged in victory. A victory that ended the Great War and brought forth the reign of Mt. Olympus. Born from the Depths of the Underworld. Rooted in the River of Souls, our Mountain emerged out of the Chaos. As it grew, so too did the might of the Olympians. We created a world of peace, a world of prosperity, a world that lives in the shadow and safety of My Mountain. A Mountain that has come to be the absolute measure of Strength and Power. Now, on this Day, that power is to be tested. The Mortal, Kratos, seeks to destroy all that I have wrought. Brothers, put aside the petty grievances that have splintered us for so long. We will unite. We will stand together. And I will wipe this plague! Olympus will prevail!

History Edit

According to Gaia, Zeus was the youngest son of Cronos, but before he was born, Cronos was forewarned by an Oracle that his own children were going to turn against both him and the other Titans. So Cronos tried to prevent this by imprisoning all of his children in his stomach. When it was time for Zeus to be imprisoned, Zeus' mother; Rhea couldn't bear to lose another child. So to protect her child, she decided to trick her husband Cronos. She did this by summoning an eagle. The eagle was tasked to carry baby Zeus to a place that Cronos couldn't see. She then used a stone, and wrapped it in a cloth to replace baby Zeus. Cronos didn't suspect a thing and ate the stone. The Eagle sent baby Zeus to an island where he would be raised. Zeus was raised and cared for by his grandmother; the She-Titan; Gaia. She cared for him, and nurtured him. But as the years went by, Zeus found out that his father imprisoned his older brothers and sister in his stomach, (it's unclear how he found out, but it's likely that Gaia told Zeus that his brothers and sisters were inside Cronos stomach).

Because of this, Zeus became enraged and filled with hatred of the Titans, after he learned the truth. It was also revealed that Zeus had been planning to release his brothers and sisters when he was a child, as there are carvings of his rescuing his siblings from Cronos near Gaia's heart. So when he was all grown up, Zeus seeked to rescue his six Brothers and Sisters. Zeus eventually found Cronos and rescued his older siblings from their imprisonment in Cronos' stomach. After which the six, along with a few other Gods join forces and fought all the titans, which started the Great War.

According to Atlas, bloodlust consumed Zeus, which made him determined to rule all, and end the Titan's rule. He, along with his brothers, Hades and Poseidon, and the other Gods of Olympus, were fighting all the Titans with little to no effort. Determined to end the Great War once and for all, Zeus created a weapon made from the Heavens and the Earth: the Blade of Olympus. He then processed to use the Blade to wipe out a huge portion of the Titans. The ones that survived, were all banished and chained into the deepest, and darkest pits of Tartarus and were left to rot. However, Zeus decided to give Cronos a much worst fate than the other Titans. He decided torture his father for devouring his brothers and sisters. Zeus punished Cronos by forcing him to wander the Desert of Lost Souls forever. The harsh sands would forever rip the flesh from his bones until the day he dies.

After which, the Gods came to power, and Mt. Olympus emerged from the chaos, Zeus became known as both the God of Lightning, and King of the Gods. It was also suggested that Mt. Olympus grew to power, Zeus assigned Poseidon to be the God of the Seas, and Hades to be the God of the Underworld. Zeus also married his sister Hera, and the two had two sons; Ares, who became the God of War, and Hephaestus who became the Blacksmith God. Zeus also had other children, who ended up becoming either Gods of Olympus or Demigods. These included; Athena, Apollo, Artemis (who took part in the First Great War), Pollux, Persephone, Hermes, Hercules, Aphrodite, Perseus, King Minos, King Rhadamanthus, King Aecus, Peirithous, and two other Demigods.
