Ouranos (Originally),Kronos , Zeus(present ruler)
Immortals are superhuman beings with vast magical powers, such as control of the weather and the seas, shapeshifting, flight, creation, and teleportation, and other magical abilities. Immortals existed on Earth and in Heaven long before man or animal. There are two factions, or classes, of Immortals, one is the Titans, the other is the gods. Immortals are indistinguishable from humans in appearance, however, as their name implies, they are immortal and possess incredible powers of strength, speed, stamina, durability, dexterity, regeneration, fighting skill, intellect and other superhuman physical powers.
Originally, they were believed to be incapable of death. However, they discovered they had the power to kill one another through the power of the Epirus Bow.
According to Zeus, though all human souls are immortal, the souls of the righteous are divine, making them Immortals.
Reign of OuranosEdit
The original king of the Immortals was Ouranos, the personification of the sky. His rule was just and benign. However, one of his sons, Kronos, coveted his father's throne and slew Ouranos with a scythe.
Reign of KronosEdit
Taking his place as ruler of the Earth, Kronos established himself as supreme over all beings.
Before man or beast walked the Earth, Immortals waged war against each other. The victors declared themselves Gods while the vanquished were renamed Titans and imprisoned beneath Mount Tartarus. Zeus became ruler of the gods. One of the weapons from this war, the Epirus Bow was lost. Years later, around 1228 B.C. the mortal King Hyperion of Heraklion wants the bow to release the Titans to get revenge on the Gods. Zeus meets with his fellow gods. He tells them to not interfere in mortal affairs or as a god they will die as a punishment. Ares breaks this rule and Zeus angrily kills him. Hyperion eventually ends up releasing the Titans with the Epirus Bow. The Gods prove to be a match for the Titans but are overwhelmed. Zeus destroys Mount Tartarus and carries Athena and Poseidon back to the heavens. Theseus becomes an Immortal and leads the Gods against the Titans.
Immortals are as true to their name immortal beings. They are shown to be taller and to have a very muscular build. Females are shown to be a lot more beautiful and show more beauty than earthly women. Yet both can still die as they do in the film.
Zeus is shown to have said that "all men's souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine". One theory is that the group of immortals called "gods" choose these individuals to become immortals after they die. It is possible that a female and a male Immortal can reproduce sexually as shown with Athena being the daughter of Zeus.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
- Immortality - Their chief and definitive ability is their everlasting life and youth. Immortals do not age once they reach maturity. They do not need to eat, drink, sleep, or breathe. They are also immune to literally everything that is on earth such as earthly weapons for example.
- Superhuman Durability: An immortal is able to withstand high amounts of damage if injured.
- Superhuman Endurance: They are able to go without the need for sustenance and can withstand large amounts of damage.
- Superhuman Invulnerability: The Immortals are impervious to all forms of Earthly damage or injury.
- Superhuman Regeneration: All are able to regenerate cells rapidly but are unable to heal injury caused by other immortals, implying that there are certainly limits.
- Eidetic Memory: Immortals probably have the ability to recall images, sounds, or objects in memory after only a few instances of exposure, with high precision for some time after exposure, without using mnemonics or some other method to remember memories in their second life as an immortal.
- Superhuman Senses: The immortals are able to smell undetectable odors, see structures at a microscopic level, and other sensory feats. Immortals such as Athena can see with what appears to be clairvoyance which enables a being to gain information about an object, person, location, or physical event through extrasensory perception.
- Superhuman Speed: They can move react, run, so fast that everything around them moves in slow motion allowing them to kill dozens of mortals with ease.
- Superhuman Stamina: They can operate for long consecutive periods of time without tiring.
- Superhuman Strength: Immortals can use their denser and stronger muscles to manipulate extremely heavy and durable structures. Such as Zeus destroying Mount Tartarus. it also extends to their legs so they can leap and jump very high.
- Shapeshifting - Immortals can change their appearance and voice to appear either mortal or as somebody else. Athena was able to change her skin and clothing to look like a rock. Zeus transformed into an old man to aid Theseus.
- Teleportation - Immortals can appear and disappear at will, to any destination.
- Flight - Immortals can ascend to or descend from Heaven and are independent of gravity.
- Enhanced Combat - Immortals are shown to have superior combat skills than any being on planet Earth, as shown by the gods in the final battle, as when Poseidon killed a bunch of titans all at the same time with his trident.
- Epirus Bow - The Epirus Bow, being fashioned from a tree blessed with Zeus' power, can slay an Immortal.
- Scythe of Kronos - Kronos' scythe slew Ouranos.
- Whip of Zeus - Zeus' fiery whip slew Ares.
- Immortals- Both the Titans and the Gods can kill one another through a fatal injury: slashing the throat, immortal weapons etc. Seeing as the soul is immortal, it is possible they could be resurrected by higher powers such as the "deathless gods" (Chaos, Gaia, Tartarus, and Eros, etc) or by themselves through self-resurrection where they become more powerful than before they died.
