About Chronos

Χρονος (kro-knows)
Greek Primordial God of Time, Eternity and Zodiac

Aionzodiac.jpg

Before the world and the gods were created, there was nothing but time itself, unlimited and indeterminate. This was a period known as the Unaging Time. Thus, Chronos is believed to be the first deity by many. Often confused for the mad King Titan of Destructive Time, Chronos is the embodiment of linear, chronological time. Similarly, due to his involvement in the period of Unaging Time, Chronos is widely considered to be eternity personified. He is thus associated with mystery religions concerned with the afterlife. He and his consort, the goddess Ananke, enveloped the primordial world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. After this act of creation the couple circled the cosmos driving the rotation of heaven and the eternal passage of time. To date, the number of his worshippers have dwindled, but he and his legacy lives on, fueled by the weight of those that still believe, and the significance of his contribution to the universe.

Cabin Description

You would likely expect the Chronos Cabin to be equally as - if not more so - exuberant than Apollo and Zeus' cabins combined. To be perfectly fair, you weren't wrong. Though at first sight it looks like a cabin made of solid gold, exposed to direct sunlight it reflects your happiest memories - the ones that remind you of what you have worth fighting for. It's a blessing by Mnemosyne after all the right favors were done at all the right times, for those who feel overwhelmed by the waves of time & fate. At the entrance are two large hourglasses, at each side of the doorway, turning once at midnight and once and noon. The front door is big, also made of solid gold, and the handles are two of the scythes typically associated with father time.

The cabin is every bit of majestic as you'd anticipate it to be, though it differs from the rest in the sense that in the middle of it all, there is no intimidating statue glaring down at you. Instead, it looks like a luxurious cabin, with a portrait of Chronos donning one of the walls and portraits of his children surrounding it. It has been endearingly referred to as the Wall of Memories, as it's enchanted to portray the moment the child reached ultimate success or felt most happiness. There are those few blokes whose happiest memories aren't exactly the happiest, but most newcomers tend to ignore those details.

There is one enchantment put upon the cabin that can't be sensed unless your a child of Chronos. Time flows a little bit differently in the cabin, not by large amounts though. It all goes by how long people think a minute is. One individual could feel that a minute is in the 40 second mark and thus, a minute in the cabin is 40 seconds outside the cabin

Though one of the biggest, shiniest, most extra cabins there is, it fits with the average persona of a child of Chronos, thus easing things over.

Powers

Offensive

  1. For five to ten minutes, or until fully drained (depending whichever occurs first), children of Chronos are able to utilize time manipulation with their physical combat, making their attacks appear extremely fast while causing the victim to be slowed down.
  2. Children of Chronos have the ability to trap anyone in a memory of their choosing. It'll replay over and over for as long as the child of Chronos desires. However, the longer the target is held in this state, the more drained they'll be, risking a collapse.
  3. Children of Chronos have the ability to conjure up a weapon up to two or three times their size. The longer they maintain the weapon, the more drained they will be.
  4. Children of Chronos have the ability to focus an intense beam of temporal energy that will burn anything it touches.


Defensive

  1. Children of Chronos can warp a person's sense of time, temporarily stunning them.
  2. Children of Chronos have the ability to revert time around them for a short duration in order to dodge an attack that was unforeseen.
  3. Children of Chronos have the ability to “skip” themselves or objects they touch forward in time, causing them to seemingly vanish and reappear in the same place later. This can be used for a variety of purposes, such as disarming a foe or evading attacks. The further forward the skip, and the larger the thing skipped, the more the user is drained.


Passive

  1. Children of Chronos can view the entire past of someone, as well as the most likely path their lives will head down; however, it doesn't guarantee its passing.
  2. Children of Chronos are able to see how long someone's life will be.
  3. Children of Chronos tend to age at a slower rate than the average human. However, if so they wish, they can choose to speed their aging process up to match that of a normal demigod. Without doing so, a year for someone aging at a normal rate would be half a year for a child of Chronos.

Supplementary

  1. Children of Chronos have the ability to slow time down around an object and/or thing to the point it makes every millisecond seem like a waking eternity, and every movement as though it were made inside syrup.
  2. Children of Chronos can stop time completely within a ten mile radius for a brief amount of time. The longer this power is held up, the more drained they will be. Other children of time & time gods are exempt from this power, within the radius or not.
  3. Children of Chronos can employ bursts of speed, where they will be innately quicker than their opponents in battle. This is also useful for other things, such as completing chores when not wanting to, or when they're late for something, etc. They will be considerably drained after every burst.
  4. Children of Chronos have the ability to travel back and forth in time, but they are unable to interact with or change past events, only see the events play out. When they go forward in time they only see “possible” futures, that does not mean those future events will come to pass. They can also bring people they’re touching with them.


3 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Chronos also are able to conjure up a creature composed of temporal time energy up to three times their size. The creature will do their bidding, no matter what it is, but during this time, the demigod will be incapacitated. The longer they maintain the creature in existence, the more drained they will be.

6 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Chronos have the ability to truly travel backward in time. They can travel back no further than a half hour, and are drained the longer they remain in the past. As this is true timetravel, their past self exists separately from the timetravelling self, letting them effectively be in two places at once. Once the effect ends, they will reappear in the present at whatever location they were at in the past. However, if the timetraveller causes a paradox by contradicting their own experiences - such as seeing themselves, or otherwise clueing their past self in to the fact that they will timetravel later, then the power will fail. They will be returned to the moment that they tried to use the power, and instead nothing will happen, leaving them immensely drained anyway and reverting anything they tried to do.


9 Months After Character is Made

  1. Children of Chronos can trap anyone or anything into a reiterating time stream where where everything inside the loop is restarted precisely every so often, possibly even backwards. You may be able to force someone to relive the same few seconds, upwards to an hour, for as long as you keep them there. While the time loop is maintained the user is incapacitated and the longer the time loop is maintained the more energy it drains. On some occasions people have been know to retain a small amount of memories or eventually escape weaker temporal loops.


Traits

  1. Children of Chronos always know what time it is, even without a watch or clock.
  2. Because their father is the god of zodiac, children of Chronos will typically fit the stereotypes of their zodiac sign (i.e. libras are all about justice and equality, aries are impatient and impulsive, etc.)
  3. Children of Chronos never forget birthdays; they know the zodiac sign and birthday of those they meet.
  4. Children of Chronos tend to heal quickly, as they can use bursts of speed to move the process along.
  5. Children of Chronos are very punctual, and detest tardiness.
  6. Children of Chronos tend to get along well with Children of Ananke
  7. Children of Chronos have a sense for when time is being effected in some way or form

History

Yeah, before you start going on about how can I be alive because my father is tiny chopped up pieces in Tartarus, Chronos was first, then came my father's upstart half brother, Kronos. So anyway, yeah, I'm a son of Chronos and an Indigenous Australian and was raised by a Japanese man instead of my mother. Gedala Alinta was a women out of time. A women how lived ways just like her ancestors did hundreds of years ago. A women that seemed to live in another time. My parents met and well, to put it simply, my dad was in the form of a Caucasian male. It was a pretty odd meeting and pairing, especially in the late 1970’s. Yeah, I know that makes no sense, my parents meeting in the late 70’s but I was born in 1980. I will get to that later. Anyway, my parents met on the land of the Dharawal people, in the Yuin nation, which is now a part of the Wollongong area. Mum and Dad only met because Dad was an 'Ranger' and he was trying to gather information on the rock wallaby population of the area. Dad put himself into a position that he would get hurt and Mum would find him. That's what happened and Mum instantly fell in love with him. Things happened and my mum became pregant but didn't know it.
That was when Dad had a little glance at the future and saw what would happen with me in the future if I was born soon. He told Mum everything about him, that he was a god and that he needed her to stay safe for a while. He made her ageless so I would be born later on after that. Dad stopped Mum being ageless at the start of the 80's and her pregancy went on like normal.The first thing I ever saw was bush but that wasn't the first thing I rememeber. What I've been told happened after my birth was a snake slithered into our camp and threw up a bone, a bone that looked like a spear, near where my mother and I was sleeping. In a second,
that bone grew until it was the size of a normal hunting spear and fully made out of a metal,
a metal that I would find out later on is called Celestial Bronze. My mother let me touch the spear and it turned back into a bone. My mother knew that was a gift from my father so she kept it for me. The first thing I rememeber though was running, when I think I was 3. Back in the early 80's children like me, 'white enough' to pass as English and ABoriginal were taken from their families so I was one of them and Mum didn't want me to be taken away so we were always on the move. The bone/spear was giving to me just before the little time I had with my mother eneded. We met another family like us, on the run from the government because their children could pass for English, but it was a father with his two children, an Aboriginal man. He showed me something I would contuine to learn, how to throw a spear and that was when Mum brought out the bone that turned into a spear, near my 10th year of life. I threw the spear just like the man showed me but it didn't go where I wanted so I went to go get it, but what I found was it had found its way onto a farm owned by a police man. He asked me some questions about who I was and where I came from. Then he told me to go get my mother, to which I did and told her about that man. My mother instabtly became worried that I would be taken from her so she told me about my father, that he was a god from far off country. But she was cut short. The man had followed me and took me from my mother, and with a few friends of his, took the man's children away from him too. After that, I can't remember much. I just rememebr the one morning I woke up in the mission and cried for my mother. In the mission, they tried to get me to stop believing in my people, to turn me into their opinion of AUstralia. I knew what they wanted to I just acted like that, like I wasn't who I was anymore. That was when they put me back into 'sopceity,' and gave me to a man that would help me out for the rest of my life. He was a child of Hecate from Japan, named Sato Nakomara, and had actually been sent by my father to get me. He even found my spear too, or my father gave it to Sato. Sato taught me how to fight and when the monsters came, first at 12, he helped me fight that hellhound and kill it. Everything was going smoothly until Sato got another vision from my father, to bring me to a place called the Lotus Casion in Las Vegas when I was 19. Sato saved up all his money for the next 7 years, while helping me fight monsters and teaching me how to fight. Then I took my first trip over seas, to Las Vegas. I didn't know what was happening when Sato gave me a metal stick and pushed me into a Casino. Yeah, what a great adoptive father. I didn't know I was frozen in time, just like my mother was when she was having me for a long time. Years passed and it soon hit 2018 and something unusual happened. A boy that looked a bit like me ran into me, one that said he was a son of a sea god, that I was his uncle or something. That boy was the one that got me out, that told me he was sent by my father to get me out and was being helped by what he called my step-mother, Anake. We travelled the country until we reached a weird place called Camp Half-Blood and that's when this boy spilled the beans on what had happened. Anake had been watching me since I was born and my mother had more children and her last name was now Spall. Now, things are kinda normal in the Chornos Cabin./div>
