One of the Gigantes of Greco-Roman belief. The Gigantes were Giants that were created from the blood of Uranus when he was castrated. They were already fully mature and were covered in full battle armour. The Gigantes attacked the Olympian gods but they were defeated in the end. Phoetus died in the final assault on the gods. Their bodies were buried under rocks which became mountains.
