The Primal Beings

Author: Gwydion

Compiled from Obsidian'sDictionary of Pantheons

Not arranged as a distinct class in and of itself, here is, even so, the catalogue of the first entities to manifest in the Hellenic
cosmology, and the sources for all the rest: Aether, Chaos, Erebus, Gaea, Hemera, Nyx, Phanes, Pontos, Uranus.

These beings have the following representations:

Upper Air
Primal being out of which all else emerged
The utter Shadow surrounding Hades
The Earth-Mother herself
The force and Presence of Day and Light
The force and Presence of Night and Darkness
The first light to emerge from Chaos

Lord of the Titans
