Hyperion is the Titan God of Heavenly Light, wisdom and watchfulness and Lord of the East. He controls what happens with the sun, because of its light. His three children, by his sister Theia, are all associated with light.


Hyperion was the son of Gaia and Uranus. Along with his brothers and sisters he was one of the elder Titans. He held the East while Kronos castrated Uranus. After the Olympians defeated the Titans, he was cast into Tartarus (Location).
