Uranus is famous for his spectacular downfall. His career started out pretty promising—this god of the sky was actually the first king of the gods. He and his queen Gaia, the earth, were in charge of everything way back at the beginning of time. Everything was cool until Gaia got pregnant and had the giant one-eyed Cyclopes and the monstrous many-handed Hekatonkheires. Uranus was totally freaked out by his hideous monster-babies, so he buried them deep under Gaia. This seriously ticked off the lady, so she got their other kids, the Titans, to help her get revenge on her husband. Next thing Uranus knows, the Titans are holding him down, and the youngest one, Kronos, is castrating him with a giant sickle. Yes, that means that Kronos cut off his father's man parts. (Sometimes Greek mythology really just takes it over the edge.)

Me for king
Depending on who you ask...
I did a lot of procreating while I still could...
Aether (The bright upper atmosphere who is always up for a chat.)
Gaia (My awful ex-wife who had me castrated.)
Single (Haven't had a lot of takers since Kronos castrated me...)
I've kind of lost the motivation.
