(Greek Deity) GAIA

Also known as GAEA, GE
Greek Goddess of : The Earth
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Terra

Born of Chaos, Gaia was the earth Goddess who mothered Pontus (the sea) and Uranus (the sky).

In a bizzarre twist she also took Uranus as her husband and they popped out kids at an alarming rate. He liked the Jiggy-Jig but wasn't too keen on the daddy responsibility side of things so stuffed them back in the bowels of the earth, that's Gaia's bowels, especially the bigger more ugly ones, who looked like they may grow up to over-throw him.

You've gotta wonder how big grandma Gaia's butt was because at one point she had Brontes, Steropes and Arges the three Cyclopes, Briareus, Cottus and Gyges the Hecatonchires and a dragon called Campe all in there. But there was still enough room for Zeus to wander in, slay the dragon and release the giants to help him battle the Titans. It has to be some sort of record!

Anyway, she had serious belly pains, which is understandable given the circumstances, so she hatched a cunning plan involving her youngest son, a razor sharp adamantine sickle and her husbands manhood.

See Cronus and Uranus.
