Titan

It is technically accurate to say that the Titans exemplify talent, dedication, and power. Such an assertion, however, is akin to saying that Bhyss is occasionally a little ungregarious.

A few impudent mortal leaders have sent armies into battle with Gods. The Titans have led those armies, and they can claim victory over the most mighty beings in the Realm.

Once, in the days long past that provided all the substance of today's gossip and speculation, a Titan wished to cross a river. Dissatisfied with the craftsmanship of the bridge, he crafted a new one from a nearby forest. Still inimical to the crossing, he finally simply diverted the river's flow into the ocean, in the process flooding ten villages and ending a centuries-old tribal feud by drowning all the participants. He then decided not to cross the river after all and continued on his journey.

Such an immense achievement characterizes but a fraction of the Titans' true ability. The indiscriminate use of that mastery of magic and nature may explain why there are no Titans today.
