Gaea or Gaia (Ancient Greek: Γαῖα)  was the earth itself, mother to all gods, titans, and monsters, and wife to her son, Uranus

Mythology Edit

Reign Edit

With Uranus, Gaea had many children. But she had them in batches, usually a different species each time. The first were the Titans, the second was the Cyclopes, and the third were the Hekatonkheires. Once the Cyclopes and Hekatonkheires were born, Uranus threw them into Tartarus due to their ugliness. Gaea was angry at this, so she fashioned a sickle out of the hardest flint. She went to her children, the Titans, and gave it to them. Kronos, the youngest of them all, took the sickle and convinced four of his brothers to help kill their father.
