|“||In the time before the Titans. Before the Gods of Olympus, a great battle was wagged. The Warth of the Primordials, the very beings who forged the Earth, raged out of control for an eternity.||”|
The Primordials are the first deities or beings that come into existence. They were astronomical in size and their appearances were elemental, similar to the Titans, albeit with a more human bodily shape. The battles among themselves shaped the world and universe as it is.
In Greek Mythology, the Primordial deities are the first entites or beings born in existence. They form the very fabric of the universe and as such are immortal. The Primordials included Aether (Light), Ananke (Compulsion), Chaos (Void), Chronus (Time), Erebus (Darkness), Eros (Procreation), Gaia (Earth), Hemera (Day), Hydros (Primordial Waters), Nesoi (Islands), Nyx (Night), Ophion (Serpent), Ourea (Mountains), Phanes (Appearance), Pontus (Water), Tartarus (Hell), Thalassa (Sea), Thesis (Creation), and Uranus (Heaven). These deities are a group of gods from which all the other gods descend. They preceded the Titans, the descendents of Gaia and Uranus. They are also the children of Chaos the formless void who created the universe.
In the God of War Series
It's said that before the Titans and the Gods, a war broke out between the Primordials, the beings who forged the Earth. Their war was so massive it caused many natural disasters around the world, and from the rage and madness of their war, the Furies were born. The best known primordials are Gaia, Ouranos and Tartarus. Morpheus, Thanatos and the Sisters of Fate would also be considered to be primal deities.
Since the Primordials are the first beings in extistance and are the ones who forged the Earth, they are without a doubt omnipotent.
- The water Primordial seen is most likely Thalassa, as it is quite clear she's a female.
- The fallen Primordial that forms the mountain ranges might be one of the Ourea.
- The Primordial that bled into the sea and thus created the Furies should have been Ouranos, however, the blood came from a female Primordial and so it is unknown to who she was.
