Mythological Origins

Greek/Roman God of Warfare.
A Titan who fought against Zeus’s rebellion. Father of Zelos (Emulation) Nike (Victory) Kratos (Strength) Bia (Force) Selene (Moon) Eos (Dawn) by Styx (Hate).
Some tradition also holds that he was the father of Athene, by whom he was slain.

”Pausanias, Description of Greece 7. 26. 12 (trans. Jones) (Greek travelogue C2nd A.D.) :
“The city Akhaia got its name, according the the Pellenians, from Pallas, who was, they say, one of the Titanes.””

”Hesiod, Theogony 383 ff :
“And Styx the daughter of Okeanos was joined to Pallas and bare Zelos (Emulation) and trim-ankled Nike (Victory) in the house. Also she brought forth Kratos (Strength) and Bia (Force), wonderful children.””

Pallas the Channeler

Titanus Pallas was born at the end of the 5th Age, the Age of Gods as the son of the ruling Channelers.
Not much is known about Titanus Pallas’s childhood or upbringing. All that is known is that he married into an ancient channeling bloodline and raised 7 children. Two boys and five girls.

His childhood was unremarkable. Until the Power manifested itself, the children of the Gods learned the history of their ancestors and of the duty of governance they would one day assume. Pallas was particularly enthralled with the annals of history which recorded the feats of the Age of Heroes, and aspired to become a strong and just ruler. He was also keenly interested in the fragments of history that mentioned a time when a great darkness lay across the world. However, little history was preserved from that era and the true nature of the darkness had been forgotten.

Pallas did not spark naturally. At the age of 22, the Power echoed and was brought out by his parents. Under the tutelage of Megamedes, his father, Pallas spent half a century learning the mysteries of the One Power. He was a competent student but excelled at nothing in particular. In this period, he married the Lady Atharen at the age of 30. His studies suffered for it as he payed more attention to his family who he adored. Together the couple had seven children. Kratos, the eldest, Selene, Nike, Bia, Eos, Zelos and the youngest, Athene.

Two hundred and twenty years after their union, Atharen died giving birth to Athene.

The child was the last gift his wife gave to him, and Athene looked exactly like her mother. Thus, Pallas doted on his youngest daughter.

As he had no Talents or great affinity for any area in particular, he served as a minor official in Olympias for a century.

At the age of 172, his parents died in a dispute between a rival family, and Pallas was left to govern the estate. As the head of an influential family, Pallas was thrust into the middle of Olympias’ political spectrum. He held one of the highest offices of the realm, serving as a Governor of Auriga, a province in the heartlands of the Pantheon, partly because of the power he now held as the head of his family and partly because of his tenure as an official in the capital.

The city of Capella, a city renown for the fierce storms that brewed in it’s mountainous peaks, served as Pallas’ home for the next 200 years. In this time, tensions began rising amongst the channelling rulers. A group of young men and women rose to prominence in the capital who began stirring the currents of political stability.

Pallas in his capacity avoided the early stages of the conflict, taking no interest in upstarts. It was in these years he started to change. Early in his 200 year reign of Auriga, he spent a great deal of time investigating the mysteries that intrigued him in his youth. He poured over the histories and learned much of the Fourth Age, and even pieces of the fabled Third Age, however, it was never enough.

However, it was enough to give him avenues to explore. Not a natural Dreamwalker himself, Pallas entered Tel’Aran’Rhoid physically and under the guidance of his daughter, Selene, attempted to seek further answers to the question of what the dark past that had been insinuated in the histories actually was.

The more time he spent in the World of Dreams, the more his demeanor changed. This change took centuries to manifest. It was not until his 193rd year of governing Auriga that these changes became noticeable to his family and friends. He had become harder and more cynical. Most notably, he was increasingly sure that a dark haze hung upon his heart.

At the age of 372, now in his prime, Pallas returned to the capital Olympias. With his questions answered – however vaguely – his direction in life changed. He became increasingly convinced that war was imminent, and that he would be forced to participate in no small way.

For the next 128 years, Pallas spent his time honing his martial skills. Unlike the benign training he had received in his youth, he excelled in matters of destruction and military warfare. He was among a team of scientists and other, similarly talented colleagues who refined the Gigantes – the colossal constructs that served as guardians and bodyguards – to be used in war.

He was launched into the annals of immortal history at the dawn of the 6th Age, when the Titan-Olympian War broke out. He led many Titan forces against the Three Brothers with great success. However, his children did not share the views of their father, and as one by one his children turned to his enemies, his outrage and anger grew. By the time Operation Kronos was considered, he was known as a great danger, so bent on destroying those who seduced his children with lies. It was at this time that Athene, Nike and Bia concocted a plan to lure their father into a trap with the intent to capture and contain him until Operation Kronos had succeeded and the Olympians had won. It is not known exactly what went wrong during the ambush on Pallas, only that it resulted in his demise at the hands of his daughter, Athene. When their other siblings demanded to know what had occurred, they were met with solemn silence and tears. Thus Pallas was brought down by his own kin, betrayed and destroyed. It seemed as if the dark haze he had felt in life had come to a grizzly close.


Kratos: The eldest of the Pallas family. He was famed for his extreme strength in the One Power. He was not a military man like his father, but his power was deemed invaluable and he took part in many operations for the ‘Gods’ early on. He was the last of the children to turn against the ‘Gods’.

Selene: The second born and eldest girl of the family. Selene was a master of Tel’aran’rhoid surpassed by few. Her role in the wars is unknown, but it is likely she played only a minor role in events, preferring to steer clear of fighting.

Nike: Nike was a charismatic, influential woman, not unskilled in the arts of war. Her passionate defence of all she valued was famous. She was a figurehead for the ‘Gods’ and later the rebels, inspiring masses so that her name was synonymous with victory. She was the second to turn to the rebels after her sister, Athene.

Bia: The dark horse of the family. Unlike Nike or Kratos, she was neither charismatic nor particularly powerful in the One Power. However, she was no less vigorous in his efforts in the war. They say Bia was the backbone of the three siblings (Kratos, Nike and her)

Eos: Eos was a great advocate for negotiation and peace. She did not approve of her father’s ire in the latter years, but she held the rebels primarily at fault for initiating the war. It is said she was the hope of all who wished for peace. It was also said that nobody could stop the destructive war that had spanned centuries unless it was Eos. In the end, however, she failed.

Zelos: Zelos did little to distinguish himself in a time of warfare, although his aptitude for illusion gained him some measure of renown. He took neither side in the war, choosing to distance himself from what he saw as a foolish struggle that would only end in anguish.

Athene: The youngest of the family and Titanus’s treasured child. She was also the first to betray her father after being seduced by one of the rebels. Athene is not to be confused with the Goddess of Greek mythology. The similarities in name caused confusion and distortion of their identities. Beyond her fame for killing her own father, little else is known about the treasured Athene.
