(Mortal) TITYUS

Also known as TITYOS

Son of Zeus and Elara. Tityus was such a big strapping lad that he out-grew his mum's womb and Gaia had to carry him through to birth.

He was hidden away at Pytho by the philandering Zeus incase Hera realised he had been cheating (again!) and when Leto wandered by Tityus thought it would be okay to help himself. But it was anything but okay.

Leto was with-child courtesy of Zeus, in fact she was with children, and when Apollo and Artemis were eventually born they set out to whupp everyone who had hard-lucked their mother during her extra long and laborous pregnancy.

Shooting him to death with arrows just wasn't enough and Tityus was thrown into Tartarus to face one of those world famous and globally feared eternal tortures. There's nothing quite like tireless pecking vultures with a real taste for human liver to put things into perspective.
