Case File: Gaia vs. Kronos

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Gaia) accuses Defendant (Kronos) of wrongful imprisonment. After Kronos took power from his father, Ouranus, he followed in his father's footsteps by chucking Brontes, Steropes, and Arges down into Tartarus.

Case Status: Case closed. Once again, Gaia brought a king of the gods down—this time by allying herself with Kronos' son (her grandson) Zeus. Together, Zeus and his fellow Olympians released the Cyclopes. Next, they beat down Kronos and his Titans and threw them all into Tartarus.
