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 channelling bloodline and raised 7 children. Two boys and five girls.
He was launched into the annals of immortal history at the dawn of the 6th Age, when the Titan-Olympian War broke out. The Pallas family, foremost among them Titanus, gained a reputation for his military prowess, winning many key battles in the initial stages of the rebellion which hit the unsuspecting Titans hard and fast.
It was not until two centuries into the war that had spread across the globe that Pallas became the legend that is remembered. One by one his children turned to fight with the Olympians until only Zelos, Selene and Eos remained. It was then Titanus Pallas unleashed his harboured rage against the Olympians for seducing his children to their cause – in particular, his favourite daughter, Athene. For half a century Titanus Pallas wreaked havoc amongst the Olympians becoming infamous for his cool rage and merciless vengeance against his enemies so much so that they said he was wedded only to hate.
His life came to an end at the age of 553 when Athene, his own daughter ambushed and killed him. Little is known about the actual events that took place that day, but echoes of the battle that took place still ring throughout the halls of history.
