Titan god of destruction
"A horrible creature emerged into the light, liberated from his rock prison by years of mining, drilling and digging. Perses, the Titan of destruction!"
The Titans were members of a mythological race of giants who ruled the Earth until overthrown by Zeus and the Olympian Gods during a great battle known as the Titanomachy. Perses was the son of Crius and Eurybia from the very first dynasty of Titan gods and the husband of Asteria , the Titan goddess of Necromantia.
Perses belongs to the second generation of Titan gods and was worshipped as the God of Destruction. The Titans were the descendents of the first gods or divinities, called the primeval gods, who were born out of Chaos. The children of the Titans included the famous Olympian gods who included Zeus, Hera, Hestia, Hades and Poseidon.
The legend and myth about Perses, the god of destruction and the Titans has been passed down through the ages and plays an important role in the history of the Ancient World of Greece and the study of the Greek classics.
Perses features in the Creation myth of the ancient Greeks which are based on the idea that these supernatural beings resembled mortals but possessed great mystic powers.
The children of Perses and Asteria
The wife of Perses was Asteria the dark Goddess of Necromancy, the practice of witchcraft by communicating with the dead, especially in order to predict the future. It is therefore not surprising that their union produced Hecate, the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night and the moon and the 'Queen of Ghosts'.
The domains of Hecate extended over earth, the sky and hell and for this she is represented in works of art as a triple divinity.
