A Giant who attacked the Olympian gods. His name means ‘Brandisher’ and was born from Gaia. He was killed in battle and was flayed by the goddess Athene. She then used his skin to adorn her shield in commemoration of defeating him. According to some sources, Pallos was the son of Eurybia and Caois and was the sibling of Perses and Astraeus. He fell in love with Styx who gave birth to Cratos, Bia, Zelus and Nike.
