In the ruins of the once great Mt. Othrys home of the Mighty Titans until they were cast in the deepest darkest pits of Tartarus; the the base of the volcanic Mt. Etna. A lone tall imposing muscular figure sat on a fallen column. He wore no upper part of his tunic which did well to show off his in tuned body. He did wear a short like tunic that’s stylized as white with golden flames. A gold and white belt with half of one side being gold and the other half being white, and at the center was a half-moon half-sun which connected like a piece of a puzzle. His cothumus or sandals which rose to the middle of his legs were dark black. Last of his attire was unlike any other clothing. A black metallic half mask covered the left side of his face; it appeared as if it was a part of him. No mortal or beast knows why he wears it. Some say it’s because the left side if his face is so horribly disfigured that even the God’s couldn’t stand to look at it. Others say that the mask is actually part of him. No one except the bearer and the God’s known why he wears the half mask. Leaning against the side of the fallen column were his weapons. For a defense weapon he bore a long wide rectangular shield which bore his family emblem of the half-moon half-sun located on the center of the shield. The shield was made from the mineral of Mt. Etna, the very mountain Zeus struck with his master bolt to keep the Titans trapped within the darkest pit of Tartarus. Zeus threw the bolt so hard that it blew the mountain top of Mt. Etna right off, which in turned sealed the entrance to the pit of Tartarus off forever. Next was his Gladius. A short sword to him but a large sword compared to mortals. The sword was made from the uru of Olympus. Finally was his most famous and favored weapon, his giant sledge Hammer. Legend has it that his power was so great that even the God’s feared it. So when he was still a baby Zeus, the King of The Olympians locked away a very great portion of his power in a giant sledge hammer made from the very core of Mt. Othrys itself. That hammer would come to be known as The Hammer of The Titans. To make sure that power could not fall in to the hands of those who would abuse it; Zeus bound the sledge hammer to him by blood, making it so that only he or Zeus who had the Cyclops’s craft all of the figures weapons. They even crafted his half mask not knowing its true purpose.
After hours of sitting the figure finally stood but not before praying to the God’s. After his ritual prayer, He slid his arms in to the arm straps of his Shield and gently placed it back on his back where on his back for the time being. Next he sheathed his sword on the inside of his shield which held spaces for his sword and hammer. The figure kept out his sledge hammer and raised it in the air. Suddenly storm clouds swept in, thunder roared and lightning struck. Rain poured heavily. However the most violent of it all was the velocity of the wind and the speed in which kept dangerously increasing until finally a Twister formed. It lifted the figure up and inside of it. The Last of the Titans; Warathusis Helioson son of Helios Titan of the Sun and Selene Titaness of the moon was off to seek the council of Zeus, his adoptive father.
