Hyperion (Ὑπερίων in Ancient Greek) (also known as "Lord of Light", "Father of Helios", and "Titan of the East") is one of the twelve Titans of Ancient Greece, who were later supplanted by the Olympians. He was the son of Gaia and Ouranos, and was referred to in early mythological writings as Helios Hyperion, 'Sun High-one'. His symbols are an open eye and a blazing sun. His name means " watcher from above". He is best known for helping Kronos overthrow their father Ouranos and fighting against the gods in the first Titan war. Eventually his son Helios succeeded him as Sun God, and Helios was in turn replaced by Apollo. Theia is his wife.


Hyperion was the Lord of light, the father of the three shining gods of heaven - Eos the Light of Dawn and Day, Helios the Sun, and Selene the Moon all by his wife Theia.

Second Titan WarEdit

Hyperion was the only other Titan besides Kronos who fought in the battle of Manhattan (Prometheus didn't fight). He led an army consisting of draceane, demigods, and laistrigonian giants into Central Park, where he was intercepted by Percy, the Athena Cabin, Artemis' hunters and the nature spirits led by Grover and Leneus. He dueled Percy and was able to blind him for a moment until Percy was able to move the fight to the water. Percy with his powers created a hurricane long enough for Hyperion to be trapped in a maple tree by the satyrs and nymphs. It is unknown if Hyperion would be able to escape from the tree when reaching his full form, or even if he could reform at a later time in Tartarus.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Hyperion is decribed to be tall and strong with golden armor and eyes like miniature suns but with a harsh light not a warm one. Compared to Apollo, god of the sun, but said that Hyperion appears to be much harsher. He is also stated to be the strongest of the East, West, North, and South. Although he is immortal and capable of changing to any size.


It is showen that Hyperion can manipulate light(and possibly fire) and control it. He can also surround himself with light, light himself on fire, and move at extremely fast speeds. He can walk on water, and he can suck a Greek firebomb into his palm(destroying it). His weapon is a magical long golden blade. Like Kronos, he could also blast anybody backwards just by emitting "titanic" energy.
