–Aithra to Kronos.
Aithra became known as the Titan of the Sky and the Heavens, Nature, Youth, Warmth, Unity, Destiny, Evolution and Sexuality. Aithra becomes Kronos' consort, effectively becoming the proxy "Warrior Queen" of the Titans, in all but title.
Additionally, Aithra allows Rhea to retain her purpose as the Titan of Fertility and Motherhood, stating that she is to accept Virginhood henceforth as the Goddess of Blessings which she would bestow to her new children: the new Humanity that the Titans planned to create.
Aithra was born as the son of the Heavenly Protogenos God of Light: Aether, and the Earthly Protogenos Goddess of the planet Earth: Gaia, unlike his other Titan siblings Aithra was the son of two first Generation Protogenoi parents. Because of this and the predicted flow of time, the Fates decreed that since he was born of incredible power after the Death of Ouranos then it would be Aithra that would redeem the Titans, when the early Olympian Gods overthrew Kronos's sovereignty of the Universe.
Hearing this and learning that a Godly son of Kronos born from the womb of the Titaness Rhea would lead a war to overthrow him from her brother Chronus - the Protogenos of Time - caused Gaia to train Aithra rapidly, desiring to make her son the secret Ace of the Titans, and then planning Aithra instead to enact her first attempt of revenge on the Olympians shortly after the climax of the First Titanomachy.
Due to his Godly nature as a Titan it was apparent that Aithra wouldn't age in his original form beyond that of adulthood which came at a surprise to Gaia when her youngest Titan child seemed to stop aging in his late teens and encouraged such youthful energy in and around him, Aithra had a natural warmth and deemed to be the master of Heavenly and Aerial dominions rebelling against the Olympians, additionally Aithra seemed to have an affinity for nature and the abilities to copy and evolve based on what he observed.
In a gathering of rebellious elements and the Gaian/Titan loyalists allowed Gaia to introduce her son at last, introducing him as: "Aithra, the Titan of Sky and Heavens, Titan of Warmth and Youth, Titan Lord of Nature - both natural and supernatural - and Evolution".
Sadly, news of this extra Titan son reached Zeus through his spies and the King of the Olympians feared this opportunity for the Titan Army and Powerbase to reform, Zeus attacked the next meeting of these Rebels however his individual Forces were defeated and Zeus fled in fear of Aithra's collective power, Zeus was forced to request the aid of Poseidon and Hades in shame for his defeat at (what he called) the Legacy of their tyrant father.
The Three Brothers joined Forces and began to work with their collective Forces to battle against the Rebels, it was a close battle with Aithra having learnt to deal with Zeus but in the end Aithra was subdued despite the fact he watched on - observing his enemies as he had done throughout the entire battle - and refused to give up his defiance.
With the Seal of the Lightning Chains ineffective and Kronos' Scythe unable to cut through Aithra's flesh except in the hands of its true master it became obvious that the Olympians needed to find another way to confine him, throwing him into Tartarus would have been counterproductive as Aithra wouldn't have been weakened which would allow him an easier escape and he would be around the other Titans, eventually a room-like dimension was crafted through magic to be used to contain Aithra and the Big Three began working on a project to fully suppress the Titan's power.
Using water borrowed from the River Styx Poseidon took an iceberg and with the Styx waters crafted an indestructible opaque crystal coffin, Hades crafted Stygian Iron locks for the Coffin and woven chains of spiritual energy to contain Aithra within the Coffin, finally Zeus created a Seal of the Lightning Chains to bind the coffin and drain power from Aithra whom infinitely replenished that taken. As a final barrier between Aithra and the world outside the Coffin, the Big Three forced Hypnos and the Oneiroi to create a field of sleeping magic, that would force Aithra and anyone attempting to approach the area around the Coffin to fall into an unbreakable sleep.
After the the raising of the Titans home of Mount Othrys and the escape of the Four Titan Lords from Tartarus after the power boost their home gave them, Coeus returns to Kronos and reveals the rumours he had gained of their mother having a secret son and that an entrance to his prison had been located in the Labyrinth, where the Olympians had recently moved it to.
Personality and traits
In the company of the Titans and his allies, Aithra was considered to be a very kind and caring individual who gained allies through the bonds he crafted with them, making those closest to him always more loyal than many of those that followed Kronos into battle.
Aithra was arguable also cruel, as the Titan of Destiny he was eventually drafted to design challenges and events that forced enemies into their fates, sometimes at a far earlier time than their fate expected of them.
Aithra was never arrogant and looked to combat or challenges with a smile or smirk on his face, Aithra also liked to observe his enemies and see what they would do or how they fight or react in certain situations, allowing him to learn from them and evolve in an attempt to surpass them.
He is the kindest of the Titans and as the Titan of Bonds he is fated to bond together the rest of the Titans, making an unbreakable group of Gods and making it unlikely that he would follow Rhea in betraying Kronos, Aithra is also the one whom loves his mother the most out of all the Titans and almost all the Gigantes.
Aithra had dirty blond hair and blue eyes, that became slitted like a cat whenever he was in his god form or when he was using his divine powers to observe an, enemy to evolve past the threat they were posing to him.
Aithra had a well endowed body and stood just four inches under Kronos's six foot height, at five feet and nine inches, Aithra was often seen in his Symbol of Power: the armour called Anabainó Kurios.
Aithra never carried a weapon and rarely ever resorted to acts of magic, preferring to use his godly powers and his tactics, using his body as a living weapon against his enemies with blinding movements of his body, arms and legs.
- Main article: Anabainó Leondas (TTs)
Aithra's symbol of power that literally means a number of things, Anabainó - "to go up" or "ascend", Leondas - "Lion", literally intending to mean "Ascendant Lion". It was made of Adamant by Gaia, the same material as the Scythe wielded by Kronos, and customized specifically by Aether for his son to rule over the battlefield. It is said that the Armour allows for speed of light movement and attacks, which enhances Aithra's already tremendous speed and close range combat, the armour is also near indestructible and repairs itself over time.
Powers and Abilities
As the son of two First Generation Protogenoi, Aithra is an extremely powerful Titan and therefore a powerful divine being capable of matching his might against anything that he faces against,
- Aethra is commonly a female name and is commonly mentioned in Greek mythology, in two of those cases she is an Oceanid; one of those Oceanid myths has her as the Wife of Hyperion instead of Theia. In the other two myths, Aethra was the wife of the Spartan Phalanthus and a daughter of King Pittheus of Troezen as well as being the mother of Theseus, respectively.
- Aithra was chosen, over its alternate spelt counterpart: Aethra, because it seems more masculine while Aethra is definitely feminine.
- Both Greek words Aithra and Aethra literally means the "bright sky".
