Adventure / Action

chapter one: The beginning

Prologue/ Chapter 1

Third person POV

A woman sat in a forest looking at her twelve new children, a confused expression on her face, these are not primordials she thought but then again, Chaos said that everything has already been created so there is no need for more personifications she could feel their essences, they were immortal but they didn’t quite have the power of a primordial

Another figure entered the forest and walked towards the woman

“So these are our children”

“ Yes but they are… different”

The male figure raised his eyebrows questionably “ different? How so?”

“ Well… they are not personifications, it is strange but I can feel their powers” she said, then she pointed at one of them “ for example this one has the same type of energy as our brother, Chronos but to a lesser extent”

The male figure looked at his children for a while before speaking “well what should we call them”

“ What do you mean?” the woman said confused

“ Well as you said, they are not personifications of anything so what should we call this new race of immortals?”

The woman sat there for a bit thinking, what should she call this new breed? She came up with several names but none quite fit these new beings, suddenly a voice spoke in her head that was not quite her own Titans, I want this new breed of immortals to be called Titans, now go my daughter you must show them to the rest of your siblings the woman’s eyes widened mother? We haven’t heard from you for six millennia! Where have you been? She waited for Chaos to respond I have had to take care of threats approaching you and your siblings, you will most likely not see me again for a very long time, now go my daughter do as I have asked then her mothers presence left, leaving a dumbfounded woman to think of what she had said

“Titans they will be called Titans” the man raised an eyebrow wordlessly asking the woman why she had chosen the name “ Chaos” she said simply

The mans expression changed to one of surprise “ what else did she say?”

“She said that we should show them to our siblings” the man nodded

“Yes we should, I will summon our brothers and sisters you get the children to the council room”

The woman nodded and they both flashed away leaving no trace that they were there.

Unknown to the a figure had been observing from the shadows seconds after the two figures had left the man conjured a hole in the ground and jumped in


Tartarus sat in his throne pondering what he should do, he was not a stupid deity, he knew that the creation of these new immortals could change everything.

Tartarus just like Iapetus and Hades would be after him was an outcast amongst his brethren, he was hated and scorned even though he was one of the oldest of them all, he knew that with these new immortals his siblings might try to take away his kingdom, needless to say he was in a bad situation

The old primordial sat and thought of ways to solve his problem, he couldn’t destroy them as they were immortal and if he trapped them most of his sibling would fight against him.

 suddenly amongst all of his dark and desperate thoughts a solution came to him.

He quickly jumped of his throne and went to gather the waters of the five different rivers that ran through his kingdom, after that he mixed them and waited, nothing happened he sat their for hours until he got desperete and did something that he had been told never to do, he prayed to his father

“ Order please help me do my purpose and I shall be indebted to you, I swear in Chaos’s name that I will do you one favor if you help me here and now”

He then waited for something to happen but the mixed waters of his lands stayed exactly the same, he had lost all hope when suddenly a blinding white light began to glow out of the mixture of the waters, it was so bright that even he, Tartarus had to close his eyes, after the light's intensity diminished Tartarus opened his eyes and grinned at what he saw, two children lay asleep in front of him, they radiated the same kind of power that the children of Gaea had but stronger, much stronger

“Rise Perseus and Typhoon children of the pit” Tartarus said soon those fools will pay for shunning me


A few thousand light years away floating in space there was a body, it was the body of a being dressed in pure white, he seemed to be dead with a black sword gruesomely embedded   into his stomach, slowly the mans left had reached out and viciously ripped out the sword from his body, instantly the wound closed, the man smiled and opened his eyes, they were pure white and shown with cold intelligence and had a sadistic gleam in them

“Interesting” the man, said his voice echoing in the endless space  slowly but surely drifting back to where he heard the prayer of his son “very interesting
