Case File: Uranus vs. Gaia

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Uranus) accuses Defendant (Gaia) of having seriously ugly babies. When Uranus's wife (and maybe mother) started popping out the little ones, he was none too pleased—mostly because the little ones weren't so little. Both the Cyclopes and the Hekatonkheires were giant monsters who totally freaked their dad out.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Gaia is the earth itself, so if she wants to have big monsters for babies, there's not much anybody can do about it. Anyway, she had the twelve Titans too, and they all looked pretty normal.
