A Titan born from Gaia and Uranus along with many other Titans who were all condemned to Tartarus. Having escaped Tartarus with the help of her brother Kronos, Rhea fell in love with him. They had many children but Uranus cursed Kronos stating that one of the Titan’s children will kill him. Kronos then devoured each child that was born from Rhea. Thea then secretly delivered her baby named Zeus in Crete with the help of Lyctus. Zeus then grew to an adult and became powerful enough to castrate and kill Kronos.
