Hades is a Noble Titan and the brother of the Titan leader Zeus, and the Chaos God Harkkon. Hades is the master of Death and he controls the lands of the Underworld and it is here where the dead come to rest long after they fall. His mastery of this land has been unchallenged for his entire excistence and this has left him more aloof then the other Titans who are constantly facing threats from the forces of Chaos.
Hades was created by the Old Ones for the purpose of managing the souls of the massive number of mortals that would be dying on the planet. His role was to maintain the peace between the ultimate fate that awaited everyone on the planet but at the same time not make it so frightening that people didn't live their lives out. Hades was close with his brother Harkkon who during his early days controlled the Mountains. This closeness was something that he did not have with his brother Zeus of whome he shared a bitter hatred with, and this hatred escalated on several occasions and nearly boiled over after Zeus's son Hercules killed the son of Hades in battle. As it threatened to end in violence they were paused by the betrayal of their brother Harkkon who was corupted by Tzeneech and thus became their bitter enemy. Returning to the Underworld following her time at the Lodge of the Old Ones she would attempt to get Hades to intervene but when it became clear he would not she decided to go alone to rally support to get Hermes out of the Lodge, but Hades was unwilling to risk her life and instead imprisoned her within the Underworld Palace. During the Titan Civil War he led the defences of the Underworld which was attacked heavily by his brother Harkkon. The attack by his brother through off the love between the two and when Hades defeated his brother on the field of battle he paused unsure of whether he could kill him, and by the time he had decided his brother had fled the field. Following the Titan Civil War he became less and less involved in the affairs of the Titans to such an extent that Zeus was forced to on several occasions remind him of what his role was. Hades would be convinced by his brother Zeus to assist during the events of the Second Titan Civil war but the fact that his best friend Hermes would side with the rebels led to Hades doing little actual fighting but following the conflict he was made Hermes jailer.

The Old Ones had used the Lizardmen in order to administer much of what they knew was neccessary for the planet, but as time went by their scheduals determined that they needed to leave the planet. The Old Ones knew their time on Earth would have to end but they wanted to make sure their world would be watched over. In order to leave behind something that would protect, guide, and further advance the denizens of the Earth. In order to do this they decided to create extremely powerful creations that would look over different areas based on the planet. The Old Ones created different Titans for different purposes, and with every piece of the lives of the mortals below looked after the world would advance in peace. The Titans would be given amazing powers that were nearly limitless within the region of Magi they also created called the Fade. Within the Fade they gave the Titans birth, and from this the Titans would become the vessels of the future goals of the Old Ones long after they would eventually leave the planet.

Birth of the Fade
|First Generation||The First Generation of Titans were created by the Old Ones, and are by far the most powerful of the Titans. These were the Titans that controlled and dominated the most important aspects of the world, and of whom the most power and responsbility would fall.|
|Second Generation||The Second generation were still created mainly by the Old Ones, but several of the First Generation Titans begin to create Titans in a style that became a sort of parenting. These Titans were the commanders of the First Generation Titans and are by the most numerous of the Titan generations.|
|Third Generation||The Third Generation was constructed directly before the departure of the Old Ones, and was created in order to deal with specific areas that the Old Ones were conserned might become problems later. This generation is very small in number, but has the highest percentage of its generation of whom remained loyal to the Old Ones.|
|Fourth Generation||The fourth and final generation of Titans were created now solely by themselves, as the Old Ones had left the planet. These Titans are known for their recklessness and with the coruption possiblity of the first three generations discovered the Fourth Generation was tied to a control devise in Olympas meaning they cannot fall to coruption unless severing this through their own minds, or the destruction of the device.|
In order to construct most of the world the Old Ones had turned from science, and their own massive technology and had instead allowed their Slann to control the process by which the planet took its changing form. The Slann used untolled Magi to shift continents, changing enviorments and many other things all with the use of their primitive Magi over the vast technology of the Old Ones. Because the Old ones had used so much Magi on the world the traces of it were sucked into a realm called the Fade, and left to fester under the protection of the Old Ones. With the Old Ones leaving they needed one of their Titans to protect and control the Fade. In responce to this need they created Tzeneech and put him in the role of protecting the Fade and anyone who used its powers. In order to control the Fade, which was the area that the Slann had pushed all of the Magi that they had used during the earliest creations of the planet, the Old Ones decided to empower a God of the Fade. The Old ones designed Tzeneech with the knowledge that he was most likely going to be the most likely to become corupted, and in this way they spent the most time of any of the gods they built. Believing they have done the best they could they finished the creation of Tzeneech and moved on to the other gods they needed to create, in order for their plan to work. Tzeneech became the master of the Fade, and in this way he controlled the setting of the Fade, and while the other Titans were able to menipulate sections of the Fade he controlled the ultimate power in the Fade, and it was through him that all Magi in the world flowed through.
Old Ones Leave
With the sadegaurds believed to be in place the Old Ones, begin deasembling many of their cities on the Earth. This process was obviously to make sure the advanced nature of the Old Ones wasn't allowed to seep into the growth of the races of Earth. The process of taking apart their cities was one that they had done on an inumberable amount of occasions and because of this they were able to deconstruct their cities in a very short amount of time. With their cities gone, the Old Ones packed into their ships and set out into space to their next destination. With the Old Ones gone their favored race in the Lizardmen was initially shocked and in disaray as to what to do with themselves, but as the Old Ones knew they would the Slann took control of the situation and led the Lizardmen towards the path of enlightment where they would act as the stewards of the planet. Other then the Lizardmen the only real effect that their departure had was that with them gone, their was noone truly watching the Titans and their successes and failures. Without the Old Ones interferance though the Titans should have simply been able to deflect any internal coruption through their internal device that made sure they never deviated from their assigned tasks.
| Corruption of the Titans|
All it took was one of them turning his back on his creator for me to truly see the depths of their depravity. My brethren had created them and things like them a million times and each time they had smiled with an arrogance built on the foundation that these Titans were perfect creations. I would show them how much their foundation was built on nothing. I would let them see the truth of this perfection.
Corruption of Tzeneech
As with most stories the time of the Titans being fully unified would end when a single member of their number in the form of Tzeneech the God of Magic, and sorcery managed to destroy his protective shield. This meant that he existed without any shield against greed, corruption, or hate. These feelings did not come all at once but it was a slow corruption as the protection left him until eventually he became the First of the Chaos Gods. It was purely the work of Tek that the ability to destroy his protective shield was created when the fallen Old One Tek begin his experimentation on the Titans. Tek believed that the Titans created an imbalance in the world and the only way to make the world into its natural state was to make the Titans act naturally. In order to do this he used his unimaginable technology to enter the Fade which was the domain of Tzeneech and while in the Fade he spread a kind of virus into the Fade which seeped into Tzeneech and placed questions into the Titan's mind. The virus allowed Tzeneech to understand the emotions that were supposed to be inhibited by his shield, and with these emotions he was able to destroy the shield completely which then led to these emotions spreading. This would begin to take its affect on him in the form of his corruption unknowingly of his child of sorts in Sethe of whom was the closest to him and thus the one that begin to feel the most of his increasingly wild emotions. Due to the increasing corruption of Sethe Tzeneech would begin to feel a sort of nationalistic mindset towards his Arakhora but when this was resisted by the returning Anzu, and Terokk of whom had been away on the Earth expanding the homelands of the burgeoning Arakhora population on the Earth. Tzeneech would turn his back on the two resisting members of his children in the form of Anzu, and Terokk and openly question their love of him, and this caused Sethe to turn against them beginning the Arakhora Civil War.
Corruption of the Five
After Tek corupted Tzeenech he had fed into the mind of Tzeenech that there were several other Titans that it was very important for him to concentrate on removing the shields of and it was in this way that Tzeenech begin to target five Titans in the form of Malekor, Zeus, Hades, Khorne, and Eywa. At first targeting Malekor as this was the Titan that he was closest too he would travel to Luna where he met with Malekor, and his wife Luna and during this conversation he would be able to convince Malekor to allow him to begin the spell to remove the shield around him, but Luna was unwilling and stormed from the room unwilling to accept any deviation from the plans of the Old Ones. Following his corruption of Malekor he would Luna leaving behind the disaster that was a now corrupted Malekor of whom he taught how to remove the shields of Titans and despite Malekor's one time honorable way of life he was corrupted with a feeling of paranoia which would be the main cause for his eventual betrayal of the Luna Pantheon in the event known as the Luna War of Conquest. Leaving Luna Tzeenech would travel to Charon where he would come to the World Tree the home of Eywa and finding her happy to him he was momentarily reluctent to betray her but the anger and resentment he felt towards the Old Ones pushed him to attempt to tell Eywa the story. As he begin to tell Eywa the story that was secretly a spell crafted by Tek which had already successfully turned Malekor and Tzeenech to Chaos but this time the story was interuped by the arrival of Luna of whom explained to Eywa what had happened to Malekor and at this Tzeenech would escape Charon but before he did he would use his complete control of The Fade to block the Warp Gate which allowed exit from Charon to the Fade. Worried that his attempt to corupt Eywa had exposed him it was Tzeenech that would immediately following this event leave for Olympus where arriving there he was able to meet with Zeus and convinsed Zeus of whom had no reason to believe anything was amiss to listen to the story. Zeus would listen to the story but as the spell worked its way and destroyed his shielding it was Tzeneech that was shocked when nothing happened and Zeus just insulted the story and then asked Tzeenech to leave and despite Tzeneech attempting to explain what had happened he was refused and thus silently Zeus was corrupted but his corruption would be different. Zeus had been hand crafted by the Old One Sek of whom had created with a single overriding drive and this drive led to his corruption creating a flawed personality trait where in he became increasingly ridig in his view of what the Titans purpose was.
Fall of Nurgle
Spread of the Corruption
With the corruption spreading and an increasing amount of Titans becoming corrupted there would be the first casualty of the conflict when the First Generation Titan Jupiter was approached by Malekor, Khorne, and Tzeneech. Attempting to have Jupiter remove her shield would backfire dramatically when Jupiter resisted the three Chaos Titans and a fight broke out between the four of them. The group attempted to manipulate Jupiter who they knew to be a very noble and just and thus they attempted to have her join them through arguing that they would assist the world through their work and that it was Zeus that was the problem. The group of corrupted Chaos Titans had been unaware that Jupiter had lost her shield through her proximity to the Woses but her corruption was to become increasingly noble, and seeking justice which would lead to her inability to negotiate with the three more powerful Titans instead simply attacking them and nearly killing Tzeneech but eventually she was unable to fight the three of them and thus the fight led to the death of Jupiter of whom was over matched by the three more violent Titans. Following her death Khorne would become quite boisterous in his discussion of murdering Jupiter, and while this was something that angered many of the Titans it would be her two sons Ulric, and Taal that would become enraged by the death of Jupiter and under the leadership of Ulric they would begin a plan to target Khairne for revenge against Khorne.
Fall of Slanaash
Slanaash would protected from corruption by two things with the first being his devout love for his elven creation leaving him never entering the fade, and the second being constantly guarded by his sister Elune who believed that there was a dangerous element growing in the Titans and knew she needed to protect her brother. Ragoth would become so isolated from his elven family that he drifted into the sphere of influence of a titan who would eventually ruin him in the form of Malekor and through Malekor he became a different person then the one he once was. When Malekor fell to corruption it was Ragoth who was one of the titans that fell into the words of Malekor becoming just like his mentor an agent of chaos, and through this he was tasked with corrupting his father in order to truly prove how loyal he was to malekor. When Slanaash could not be gotten to due to the interference of Elune it was Zarakynel that was corrupted when she was tricked by her brother Hypnos and when she returned to Ulthuan she realized what had happened to her and left a letter for her daughter Kyriss which detailed what had happened and then unable to live for one minute longer with the corruption afflicting her she would commit suicide inside the fade thus ending her life permanently. The now corupted Ragoth would find the letter before Kyriss could and due to this she was not warned and instead the family was left with little time to grieve as Ragoth made his move against his father. All the things that stood between Slanaash and corruption were broken when his son Ragoth was corrupted and in this corruption used his position as son of Slanaash to enter Slanaash's inner sanctum and tricked Slanaash into entering the fade where once there he was ambushed by Tzeneech, and Malekor who told him the corrupting story and thus broke the shield over Slanaash. So strong was Slanaash's love for the Elves that as he felt the corruption over him spread he would attempt to break himself from the Elves giving over more and more control to the Asurian pantheon as well as Elune, and Cenarius. As time moved forward though despite his attempts at resisting the corruption that he had suffered he was pushed forward by several of his children most notably Morai-Heg, and Ragoth who both had given themselves completely to the corruption and pulled their father down with them. Having given in it was Slanaash that would working alongside his granddaughter Lirith spark the event known as the Dance of Lirith.
Many of the children of Slanaash had seen a change in their father and had gone to the side of Elune, and thus these members of the Asurian Pantheon did not listen to the invitation to the dance of Lirith but many others including the loyal son Khaine traveled to the dance of Lirith where having already corrupted his grand daughter Lirith he would have her do a dance where she told the story that allowed the shield over the titans to be broken and with this event all those who were present were corrupted including half the Asurian pantheon.
The Lodge of the Old Ones
The Lodge of the Old Ones would first be thought of by the first generation titan Godrus who following his corruption by the more powerful Slanaash would be pressured by Slanaash to convert more Titans to the fallen titans. Coming up with idea of mass rituals he would form the Lodge of the Old Ones in order to bring in Titans through the belief that they were going to be learning more about the Old Ones, when in fact there was no information to learn and all they would find was a center of corruption. Nyx would be in the Underworld when the Eternity War was raging and despite the command of her husband Hades that they needed to stay uninvolved with what was happening she was convinced by her husbands friend Hermes to travel with him to the Lodge of the Old Ones and while both remained resolute in not being corrupted it was Hermes who helped Nyx escape which led to him being imprisoned. Having fallen to the corruption of the Lodge it was Wudis who attempted to get his daughters, and mother to join the Lodge but they would be protected by Hermes who despite being imprisoned by the members of the Lodge due to not falling to chaos was able to get a message to Tydana warning her of what the Lodge had done to Wudis and this led to Wudis being barred from entering Olympus.
Madness of Gwynn
- "He forced me to clean up the skeletons of the souls that didn't want physical form anymore, and it was in this task that I found my true calling. I truly understood what Slanaash had been telling me for the first time, and in that truth I saw the world."
As time went on Hade's control over the underworld was tested when before the Titan Civil War Gwynn would begin summoning massive numbers of the dead to his side, and attempted to overthrow his master in Hades. Gwynn has completely lost faith in Hades after he had begun making Gwynn clean up the skeletons of the souls that had departed their physical form, and in this embaresment had been easy pickings for Slanaash who fed his growing hatred for Hades, and pushed him towards darkness. Gwynn would fashion himself an entirely different physical form in the shape of every skeleton of every racae, and he begin to siphon the souls in the underworld into himself in order to gain more power. Hades felt the loss of so many souls and acted quickly by marshalling his forces against Gwynn who despite his massive power had a very weak force in the form of his skeleton army. The situation spun out of control until finally Hades and Gwynn came face to face, and Gwynn was defeated by Hades and thus banished from the underworld.
Titan Civil War
Main Article : Titan Civil War
|We were meant to protect this world, not destroy it.|
Following the Luna War of Conquest, and the wider events of the Eternity War the time of hiding the existence of evil within the Titan's ranks was over, and in such a brief time the two sides met in the Fade and the Titans attempted to understand the purpose of this group. The actions of Melekor on Luna and the imprisonment of Vongrith on Luna by Melekor coupled with Khorne's outright violent outbursts during the Eternity War and the moral failings of many other Titans had made this secret known. While imprisoned it was Vongrith that was visited by Tzeneech and was tricked into believing that his siblings had forgotten about him and were not coming and with this belief it was Vongrith that allowed himself to be corrupted by Tzeenech and thus when his siblings did force his release it was Vongrith who had become a secret member of the Chaos forces. The imprisonment of Vongrith would become a major problem as his brother Ursonoc marshaled massive forced and threatened invasion of Luna if Vongrith was not returned to him immediately. Realizing the danger of the situation it was Tzeneech who forced the Chaos Titans in his ranks to agree to a meeting at the fortress of Olympus where he would speak with Zeus and outwardly attempt to find a peace between the two sides. The meeting took place between Zeus, Ursonoc, Ares, and Neperune on the noble side of things while Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech arrived for Chaos and this meeting was going to be judged by Nike of whom as the goddess of victory would decide the winning case of the two parties. As they arrived it was almost clear from the beginning that things had changed as the once High Elven form of Slanaash had changed dramatically, while Tzeenech as well barely resembled his host race in the Arakhora. Despite these obvious physical changes Zeus would attempt to discuss the matters but they came to quickly understand due to Slanaash revealing it to them that Khorne, Nurgle and many others were now barely capable of containing their personal rage, and when Slanaash openly threatened the life of Neperune it was Zues that would send Malekor, Slanaash, and Tzeenech away in horror at what they had become. Sending them away it was Vongrith who remained behind and was escorted back to his Charr on Earth by his brother Ursonoc and sister Ophiel of whom in their joy to see their brother did not recognize that he was utterly changed.
The first blow came when the violent Trolloc of Khorne attacked the Titan homeland of Olympas in a massive battle that caused the deaths of many Titans and several of the more bloodthirsty of the Chaos Gods. Khorne would amass to himself a massive force of Trolloc and without the consideration of overall goals he would recruit several other Chaos Titans including Laran, and two of Khornes sons and together they smashed through the lightly defended Emerald Gate massacring the unprepared Titans within, and nearly reaching the Palace of Olympus but they were halted by a stiff resistance put up by Neperune, and Yor. Following this resistance Khorne would be pushed out of the city by the arrival of Ares who was able to battle him to beyond the Emerald Gate but Laran and the two sons of Khorne were not as lucky both being killed alongside nearly the entire Trolloc army. Alongside this massacre was the capture of the daughter of Tzeneech in the form of Aviana of whom was captured by the arrival of Hermes and taken within the prison of Olympas where she was watched over by Hermes for much of this time. Following this initial assault by Khorne it was Zeus in the Palace that would order the closing of all portals into Olympus and while this broke off contact with all Titans outside of Olympus it also put an end any attempts to get into Olympus by bypassing the main defences. As the siege of Olympas went on the forces of the other main Chaos Gods found themselves free to do what they wanted as Khorne was basically on his own holding the Titans in place. Nurlge joined the siege and brought his large forces to bear against the fortress of Tarterus where he besieged the massive fortress and put a large amount of fear in the Titans that their rear would be vulerable due to the fall of Tarterus. Despite these short term successes the overall first assault of Khorne was a strategic failure as he had revealed the goals of the Chaos Titans before they were ready and also ended several plots the Chaos leadership had to take over Warp Portals to get inside Olympus.
Thunderlands Civil War
Main Article : First Thunderlands Civil War
As the forces of Chaos had failed in their initial attempt to get inside Olympus due to the failures of Khorne it was Slanaash that would move against the so called Mountain Kings when he targeted Odin, and Vendriel for corruption as they both had portals within their cities which allowed for the movement into Olympas from the undefended center of the city. In Odin they saw little hope of corruption so they moved onto Vendriel who was ripe for corruption as he was in a secondary role to his brother and also silently loved his brothers wife Freyja giving Slanaash ample room to work his way into the soul of Vendriel. Vendriel would foolishly ignore the words of Odin who advised him not to meet with Slanaash as he had not and instead listened to the words of Slanaash who told him the story thus dooming his shield and allowing the emotions and anger to come to the surface for Vendriel. Now corrupted Vendriel begin changing his city of Uldum from the old version to a Chaos version where demons walked freely among the city, and despite being challenged by his children he would not listen to reason, but also would not allow the main chaos forces to use his portal. Following his corruption the once constant contact between Odin and Vendriel ended and this troubled Odin who would after many failed attempts to reach his brother would travel to Uldum with many Valkyrie and his wife Freyja in order to talk to his brother in the belief that they would go to the Fade and help their father in the war. When he arrived he was shocked to see the changes in Uldum. It had been some time since he'd been there and the once gleaming white city was now stained purple and the old guards, and people had been replaced by demons and creatures of nightmares. Odin would enter the throne room of Vendriel and demand to know what had happened and his brother told him that he had heard the call of the true word and it told him of the true meaning of life, and that the goals of the Titans were no longer his goals. Vendriel begged his brother to assist him as he was going to assail the Fade from within the mighty city of Olympas. Odin refused and a battle broke out between the two which only ended when Odin and his Valkyrie, along with Freyja escaped the city and made their way back to Ulduar.
The Siege of Ulduar
Main Article : First Siege of Ulduar
Odin successfully returned to Ulduar where he rallied his forces for the coming fight declaring his immediate support for the Noble Titans and ending all suspense whether he would fight his brother. Leading his armies himself he would prepare to march against Uldum but was surprised by the arrival of massive Ape army led not by his brother but instead by his brothers son Meomil of whom put Ulduar under siege. Aelsir would surrender during the Siege of Ulduar after she watched her husband Vendriel send their son Meomil and hundreds of other Apes to their death in a pointless attempt to show their violence and resolve, and this act made her realize that Vendriel was lost.
The Battle of Uldum
Main Article : First Battle of Uldum
Following the failure at the Siege of Ulduar it was Vendriel that would be forced due to his poor military skills to fight a two front war with his main army fighting the forces of the Dwarves and their Pantheon in the north, while his other forces were slowly pushed back inch by inch by the forces of Valhalla. Finally the forces attacking the Dwarves were defeated and as they retreated back to Uldum they were caught between the avenging Dwarves and the forces of Valhalla and the were massacred in their thousands. Following this disaster Slanaash sent one of his brightest lieutenants to the battle in the form of Helester who took control of the forces of Vendriel and begin to lead a skilled defence of the mountains of Olympus. As the Titan Civil War ended in victory for Chaos the leadership caste that had been built by Helester returned to the Fade so that they could receive reinforcements to reengage their attack on the Dwarves and Valhalla. While they left Vendriel made a play to re control Olympus through the creation of a group of Olympians called the Vanir. The Vanir would be utterly loyal to him, and when Helester returned with a massive army he once again moved north and put Vedriel in command of the defence of his rear which should have been easy with the huge forces he had at his disposal. Instead of doing this Vendriel silently engaged Valhalla in battle, and would be destroyed on the steps of Valhalla by Odin and his commanders. With Vendriel defeated the forces of Valhalla pushed south and sacked Olympus putting it under their control, and it was in this moment that Helester realized he had failed to destroy the Dwarves and turned his forces around and split the army into two with his side attacking Valhalla, and a smaller force attacking Olympus. Helester was much reduced and was defeated and killed by the forces of Valhalla while his army attacking Olympus was also destroyed meaning the end of the attackers.
First Holy Charr Invasion
Main Article : First Holy Charr Invasion
Vongrith returned to his people and secluded himself and with the siege of Olympus having been launched he was allowed to be alone and in this situation he would become overcome with a sense that his entertainment was nothing more then an illusion and begin to hate it leading to him changing his people and forcing home every Charr from across the world where they returned to find the Charr being changed into a military engine.
Fall of Ursonoc
As the forces of Chaos had expanded, and their control of the area around Olympus grew they had attempted to corrupt Ursonoc one of the more powerful of the Noble Titans, and one of the more notable Noble Titans not within Olympus. Tzeneech went to Timbermaw Hold alongside Slanaash and the two attempted to convince him to remove his shield through the use of every manner of Magi, persuasion that they could possibly think of, but found that Ursonoc was discusted by the betrayal that Tzeneech spoke of. Tzeneech realizing that he couldn't convinse Ursonoc attempted to destroy him, and thus would battle him within the palace of Timbermaw. The three would fight for hours, and as it went on Tzeneech summoned to him Triton who also attempted to defeat Ursonoc, but Ursonoc was soon joined by his children including his most celebrated child in Vogun. Vogun would manage to turn the tide against Tzeneech who was forced to flee the fortress of Timbermaw. As Tzeneech fled the city alongside Triton and Slanaash he would poison the mind of Vogun.
With his poison running in Vogun, the son of Ursonoc found himself filled with jealously over the fact that he felt his father didn't respect his power. As this built up in the days of the actual Titan Civil War the father and son of Ursonoc, and Vogun fought side by side but as they returned to Kalimdor to rearm their forces Vogun's madness would finally bring everything crashing down. Vogun would ambush Ursonoc while he was supposed to be guarding him in his meditation and would destroy the powerful Titan. Vogun would blame the death on Zeus, and through this took control of a large part of the Fubolg army and brought it through into the Fade. Once into the Fade they would destroy a large section of the western palace region of Olympas where they believed Ursonoc was in complete control of. This attack would only be stopped when Poseidon himself entered the fray and battled Vogun nearly killing him. Defeated Vogun would not retreat and instead sent the remainder of his forces towards the main Chaos force so they would survive and then charged the walls of Olympas where it is said he died pierced by thousands of arrows as he screamed out for Zeus to face him.
First Siege of Tarterus
For Malekor the time to do some real damage to the Titans was now and he found the perfect oppurtunity when the Titan Neperune snuck out of Olympas on a mission to stop Nurgle from destroying the powerful fortress Tarterus which held in place the weaker section of Olympas from being able to be attacked. Malekor watched and hunted the young Titan as he led his powerful Murloc forces towards the Army of Nurgle. Neperune caught Nurgle unaware and was nearing the Chaos God himself when his army was blindsided by Melekor's massive Draenei forces. There was no escape for Neperune and he and his entire army were destroyed on the field which left one of the most important commanders in the Titan army dead and a sizeable portion of the army in tatters. The Twin Titans Morkha, and Ghorka had rallied there forces when Neperune had left Tarterus and by this point they were outside the walls of Tarterus and witnessing the defeat of Neperune they would move their forces within augmenting the defences.
Ghorka, and Morkha would fight during the Battle of Olympus where they defended the walls alongside their personal Greenskin forces and their children and it was during this fighting that Ghorka would be killed by their fellow First Generation Titan brothers in the form of the fallen Hyperion, and Hynos of whom infiltrated the fortress of the Crystal Spire and killed Ghorka, and Morka alongside several of their children.
With Neperune, and the twin Titans in Ghorka and Morkha dead the defenders of Tarterus lost their most important defenders and a sizeable force so the thought by them was very much that they were in serious trouble. With a weak spot appearing Slanaash brought his mighty Elven forces to bear against the fortress alongside Nurgle, and Malekor's forces and as the walls of the fortress appeared ready to collapse the defenders were saved by the arrival of Imperius who brought his gleaming knights and was able to defeat Nurgle in combat causing the retreat of his forces and the momentary ending of the seige. By the time the Chaos forces had regrouped the defenses had been trippled and the fortress of Tarterus appeared unshakable.
Duel with TzeneechAs the siege of Tarterus and Olympas wore on the first Chaos God in Tzeneech wandered the battlefield attempting to find an outlet for his aggression following his failure against Ursonoc, and as he wiped town after town off the map of the Fade he was finally confronted by Ares the God of War for the Titans. Ares was beyond skilled, and he led his army of mysterious creatures against the forces of Tzeneech. The two fought battle after battle but each time Ares came out victorious despite the massive numbers advantage that Tzeneech had. This begin to irritate Tzeneech to no end, and thus he brought all of his forces to bear against Ares forces in what would be a massive battle over the town of Elis. As the two sides met the forces of Tzeneech outnumbered the strange army of Ares by nearly 15-1 but when the dust settled after the initial assault the forces of Tzeneech had been badly damaged, and the defenders were barely injured. As his forces begin to waver the Chaos God Tzeneech himself entered the battle and taunted the mighty Ares to fight him on the field. The two gods battled their way through the opposing armies until they were face to face, and when they met they immediatly begin fighting. The two were equally matched but as Tzeneech watched his army desinigrated around him as the forces of Ares massacred his army. After days of fighting Ares stepped back and laughed at Tzeneech, and when Tzeneech looked around he realized that his army was destroyed and he was now completely surrounded. Ares prepared to deliver the death blow but the massively powerful Tzeneech teleported himself to his personal lair leaving Ares without his complete victory but he had destroyed one of the largest forces that the forces of Chaos had.
Second Siege of Tarterus
Coruption of Hypnos
Hypnos would fight for the forces of the Noble Titans during the Titan Civil War, and fought bravely alongside his daughter Hypnia during the initial assault on Olympus, but during the Second Siege of Tarterus he was captured by the forces of Chaos and corupted.

Neru brought his forces to fortress capital of Olympas where all the Titans had been born, and by this point the fortress of Tarterus had fallen and all that was left was Olympas and a few other fortresses, and Khorne had been fighting over and over in attempts to break the siege but each time the defenders were saved by the intervention of Poseidan, Ares, and Zeus of whom stood resolute on the walls of Olympas, and its magical Diamond Gate. At this point with stalemate setting in Slanaash went to Neru one more time and decided to have Neru move against the Diamond Gate with his massive forces, and use the Magi of his people to break the Diamond Gates. It's unknown if Slanaash believed this was possible but Kargoth now believes that he did this as a means of killing another of the Chaos Gods for his enjoyment, and hates him because of it. Neru would listen and alongside several other Demi-Titans would move against the Diamond Gate. Kargoth, Neru, and the Djinn would wipe out the defenders outside the gate and begin summoning spells to destroy the Gate all the while taking huge losses from the defenders all across the Gate, and the wall. As the spell though reached its zenith the Titan Ares and the Angiris Hosts most elite forces summoned out front of the Diamond Gate and battled the Djinn. Seeing his force dying around him Neru would challenge Ares to battle, but in an act of great insult Ares would reject the offer and continue massacring the Djinn summoning the spell.
"I believed him to be invisible for my entire excistence so seeing him fall was a moment of incredible horror. He turned around as the blade sliced through his chest, and his eyes looked full of regret, and horror, and I made a full bee line towards in the hopes I could save him. As I moved forward as if it was happening in slow motion his body begin to move away like sand blowing in the wind. By the time I reached him grabbed for him but nothing remained of him except the dust from him."
As neru chased him around the battlefield the Archangel Imperius would step forward and duel him. Neru must have believed him a joke, but after only a few minutes of fighting Imperius layed him low, and destroyed Neru forever. With the death of Neru the force of Djinn became overcome with fear, and Ares, and the Angiris Host made their retreat through the Diamond Gate leaving the rest of the force to be slowly destroyed by the defenders on the walls. In a moment of leadership Kargoth would gather the leadership across the battlefield of the Djinn and lead them off the field of battle towards their old home in the Fade. As they fled the battlefield they were harassed by the forces of Chaos of whom did not want them to retreat as they were close to breaking the Diamond Gate and basically wanted them to die for a little more damage on the gate. Either way Kargoth managed to get the rest of the Djinn out, and they would make their way to their home in the Fade. When they reached it Kargoth knew they couldn't remain so they made their way to the Earth where he planned to hide his people in the same way his father had hid inside the Fade. Kargoth and the Djinn would decide quickly that they would take no part in the First War on Earth because they were rebuilding their strength in the lands now known as the Kizlev.
With the siege dragging on but not fully capable of being won due to the overwhelming defences the other Chaos Gods attempted to make the Titans leave the safety of their fortress by overwhelming entire corners of the Fade and in this way taunting the Titans to stop them from unleashing hell on the planet. With the threat completely real the Titans mobilized all their strength and attempted to break the siege, but discovered that the Chaos Gods completely outnumbered them and they were swiftly beaten back into Olympas with heavy losses.
With the Titans beaten thourghally but still holding the inpenatrable Olympas the Chaos Gods moved their plans to unleashing their massive armies on the planet Earth.
Battle of the Underworld
During the Titan Civil War Hades led the defences of the Underworld which was attacked heavily by his brother Harkkon. The attack by his brother cut off the love between the two, and led to an emotional argument as Harkkon attempted to enter the Underworld. Harkkon believed that so profound was their relationship that Hades would allow Harkkon to simply enter the Underworld unaposed, and thus enter Olympas from beneath the fortress itself. When he did come to the gates though he saw the massive army of Hades was arrayed against him, and Harkkon became emotionally unhinged that he believed Hades had betrayed him. Instead of waiting for the rest of his forces he simply attempted to charge through Hades forces but he and his elite gaurd became lost behind the lines, and by the time they were able to join together again they were trapped by the massive army of Hades against a large cave entrance with no escape.
Defeat of Harkkon

With the forces of Harkkon badly damaged in the continues fighting Hades realized that his brother was trapped and thus he had been defeated. Hades defeated his brother on the field of battle but he paused unsure of whether he could kill him, and by the time he had decided his brother had fled the field. With his brother gone Hades could have marshalled his now free forces and attempted to assist the main battle in Olympas but instead he sat unmoving in the Underworld for the remainder of the conflict and allowed his forces to sit idle.

We stood by and listened to you Zeus. We stood by and our fallen brothers and sisters took over the world. Refusing to assist those we were put on this earth to protect is its own brand of evil. I refuse to follow your evil for one second longer.
Apollo would be summoned to Olympus alongside all the other Noble Titans that had joined Ares in creating Sigmar but unlike the other Titans it was Ares that actually responded to this request by travelling to Olympus where he hoped he could convince Zeus that what they had done was in the right. Apollo entered Olympus just as requested despite the rebels telling him not too, and arriving in the city he would be met by Zeus and to his shock Poseidon of whom had been a leading member of the rebels and taken by the two to the Tower of Sotek where he was given a chance to plead his case but despite laying out his point of view with great skill his efforts were for naught when Zeus ignored his words and imprisoned him. Following the discovery that his close friend Apollo had been imprisoned in Olympus by Zeus it was Ares who finally accepted that he had to return to Olympus to confront Zeus, and thus he would gather to him the elements of the rebel noble titans and prepare to reenter the Fade. Following the imprisonment of Apollo Woglinde would break away from the rebels and return to Olympus on the request of her father of whom she thought would punish her in the same manner he had the previous time they had uplifted Jesus, but instead in front of the Noble Titan Council Zeus would execute Woglinde for her part in the uplifting of Sigmar. The execution of Woglinde would spark a violence within Ares of whom trusted Woglinde above almost anyone else and her death he put completely at the fault of Zeus and thus following the killing of Woglinde it was Ares that for a moment planned to take over control of Olympus from Zeus himself. As a conflict looked to be on the horizon it was Odin, and his brother Vendriel that would respond immediatly to the call from Ares and gathered to them dozens of Titan supporters and travelled to the Fade where they attempted to enter Olympus. Odin and his forces would be stopped by Malekor, and Slanaash of whom had gathered to them dozens of Titan followers and thousands of troops and would resist the entry of Odin and his forces long enough that they were unable to join with the rebels at Olympus. A member of the rebel titans during the Second Titan Civil War Aphrodite would meet with Ares her lover during the lead up to the rebels arriving in Olympus and she was to prepare several back ways in for the rebels to allow their numbers to get inside the fortress that was Olympus but after she discovered the relationship of Ares with Woglinde during her execution it was Aphrodite that betrayed the rebels blocking their entry and bringing several titans to the loyalist side of things.
Like all gods, Hades was immortal and invincible to certain forms of attacks. Hades could also shapeshift, which he demonstrated during his battle with Kratos, as he increased his size throughout the battle. As a god, Hades has super strength. His power is rivalled only by his brothers Zeus and Poseidon.
As the ruler of the Underworld, Hades had a good deal of control over the souls of the dead, to the degree where he was able to gift them to worthy mortals. While Kratos traversed the dangers of Pandora’s Temple, Hades gifted him with the souls of the Underworld to aid him in his journey. These souls are much stronger if they are summoned from the deepest depths of Tartarus. These souls literally mauled Kratos’ enemies to death, or weakened them enough for him to finish them off.
Hades also carried the Claws of Hades, duel hook-ended chain-blades with the power of tearing the souls from any living being, including a Titan. They are depicted as being a set of spiked chains with two hooks glowing purple at the end of each. Hades is "draped" in them, and they are embodied with his magic powers. Using the magic stored within the chains, Hades can pull out the soul of his enemies. By absorbing souls, they allow Hades to become stronger, something he even references whilst battling Kratos, as he taunts him by stating his soul will only make him stronger. These chains are extremely lethal weapons as they allow Hades to attack at short and long distances. They glow with a dark purplish aura indicating the number of souls that it has absorbed. By absorbing countless souls, the chains' attack power increases as well as the speed . Hades has the ablity to summon legions of the undead as well as a wide array of undead beasts using the Claws' power. The chains were a very powerful part of Hades' arsenal, and with them he defeated many Titans in the War. . Free from certain limitations from his helmet, Hades could also use a powerful breath attack.
