In Greek Mythology, Perses was the Titan of Destruction. Perses means "Volcanic Destruction." Perses was the son of Titan siblings, Kreios and Eurybia. He was wed to Asteria, his cousin, daughter of Titans Phoibe and Koios.
They had one child noted in mythology, Hekate, honored by Zeus above all others as the goddess of wilderness, childbirth, witchcraft and magic. She was given shares of the sky, the sea and the underworld.
God of War SeriesEdit
God of War IIEdit
Perses shortly appears at the end of God of War II, after Kratos had rewound his own Thread of Fate to beyond his birth, to visit the first Titanomachy. Meeting Gaia, who was already expecting him, Kratos convinces her and the other Titans to journey back with him to his own time, where Zeus, weakened and wounded after battling Kratos, had fled back to Mount Olympus. Perses, along with his other comrades in battle, is then seen climbing Mount Olympus, starting the Second Titanomachy. If you look closely to the left, you can see Perses climbing beside and behind Gaia.
