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.

Later when Kronos became king she foretold to him a prophecy of his son dethroning him, this led to him not trusting his children, the gods. she then later convinced Rhea to hide baby Zeus.

When Zeus became king and imprisoned her children, the titans she grew mad and together with her new husband Tartarus had the Typhon and sent him to dethrone zeus. the gods won this. her final attempt to dethrone zeus was telling him that his next son by Metis would dethrone him, leading him to convince Metis, who was pregnant, to turn into a fly, he then ate her, and so Athena was born from Zeus's head
