Poseidan is a First Generation Titan created by the Old Ones to be the God of the Seas of Earth. Poseidan is the Titan brother of Zeus, Hades, and Harkkon of which he was always distant from Harkkon and Hades but is counted on by Zeus as one of his best friends and most loyal members of the Noble Titans. Like his brother Zeus, Poseidon was known for having many human lovers. He once had sex with Medusa on the floor of one of Athena's temples. Angered by the blasphemy, the goddess then changed Medusa into a monster. Poseidan is married to Eris and while she is devoted to him his love for her is fleeting and he holds little honor or respect for their relationship using her more as a tool for his own power.

Poseidan would create the Water Elementals in his search for stewards to assist him in guarding the oceans and maintaining his order, and following this he would take on the form of a Water Elemental. His domination of the Water Elementals has expanded as he has turned the once single species into several races with the creation of several others including the Quarren, of whom have established several branches since their formation by Poseidan.

He was the patron god of many important sea-faring cities, and was widely prayed for safe voyages, for he could quickly send a tempest to destroy those who disrespected him.

Poseidan was created by the Titans during their creation of the First Generation of the Noble Titans and his role was the protection, and safety of the seas of the Earth. He was made to be nearly invinsible when it came ot the water but he was perhaps the weakest of the Titans when it came to fighting in a place other then the water, and this made him constantly fearefull of being outside of his massive home of Maptine located at the bottom of the sea in the Atlantic Ocean far south of Ulthuan. He would be forced to enter the Fade and take part in the Titan Civil War but he basically remained in his realm of the Fade for the conflict and was the least active of the Titans throughout the civil war which many of the other Titans point to constantly as a reason for their defeat as his massive forces were useless throughout the conflict. He would make up for this failure somewhat as during the First War with Chaos he intervened in the conflict and killed the massive Chaos God Veline and her massive army that was about to attack Ulthuan overruning it at the moments before it was to finish the spell banishing Chaos from the world. Poseidan would join with Ares and Woglinde in assisting the early Numenorians in their rise, and during this time Poseidan came to befriend Elros Amendil the first Emperor of Numeron and this led to him becoming instrumental in the creation of the Atlantian Pantheon which he believed would save the Numenorian people and make them the true power of the Earth. After the war he was one of the leading members of the Titans as they begin to construct the Pantheon, and he felt the greatest of shame when they and their people sucumbed to the coruption of Malekor and this made him become extremely bitter and vengeful towards Malekor. Led by Ares, Poseidan, and Odin many of the Noble Titans would react with great anger to the Downfall of Numeron which many of them had worked towards uplifting, and in this anger they would work together to create the First Man God in the form of Yen Fang of whom they gave great power and several Titans directly intervened in his life assisting him. Poseidan would become disalusioned with the cause of the mortals following the failure of Sigmar and would return to the side of Zeus of whom forgave him for his crimes and thus when the rebels came to Olympus he had switched sides now fighting alongside Zeus and his involvment tipped the tables against the forces of the rebels.

Posiedan's Gamble

He would make up for this failure somewhat as during the First War with Chaos he was able to escape the siege of Olympus reuniting with his forces near Ulthuan which was coming under massive Demonic and Arakhora assault. Following the Titan Civil War Set would travel onto the Earth where he fought alongside the massive invading Arakhora forces against the forces of order, and during this fighting he moved alongside Veline and was nearly killed with Veline by Posiedon only saved by the sacrifice of his Arakhora forces who died to protect Set.

The Second Titan Civil War
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.

Ares

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.

Noble Titan Involvement
Name Level of Involvement
Ares Ares would become the unquestioned leader of the rebels after the disappearance of Posiedan and led their forces into the Second Titan Civil War.
Posiedan Posiedan utterly hell bent on revenge for the destruction of the Numenorians would be the first to put the idea of intervention in the heads of Odin, and Ares making him the original creator of the idea of the Man Gods.
Odin Pushed into action by the expanding violence he saw in Northern Scandenavia among the Andals he would work alongside Posiedan and Ares forming the third member of the original planners of the Man Gods.
Hera Hera had lost hope in uplifting the mortals following the death of Yen Fang and thus when Ares asked for her asisstence with Sigmar she rejected him and then when Ares confronted Zeus during the Second Titan Civil War she supported her husband remaining on the loyalist side of the fight.
Apollo Apollo was a member of the rebels but answered the summons of Zues and was dishonored when he was placed in prison despite being under the protection of the guest right.
Astropos Hera had been very involved in the Rise of Atlantis and the Numenorians and thus after they were destroyed she was extremely bitter and Odin had little difficulty in convinsing her to join their attempt to uplift another human.
Nike Nike would join with her lover Poseidan in going to Olympus and it was at Olympus where she was betrayed by the disappearance of Poseidan and then during the fighting she was captured and placed in prison.
Artemis, and Dyterion Zeus petitioned both to join the loyalist faction but Artemis was unwilling to leave Ulthuan and thus they both remained out of the fighting.
