Thousands of years ago, after the First Olympian War, Gaea was enraged at the defeat of the Titans (her children), and of how they were locked away in Tartarus. She attempted revenge by sending her last and most powerful child, the great monster Typhon to destroy the gods. Typhon alone is the greatest foe the gods ever faced, even mightier than the Titans themselves.
Having never anticipated such a rival, the gods were quickly forced on the defensive and they eventually went into hiding. Athena however stood her ground and convinced Zeus to fight by calling him a coward. This convinced Zeus and he went into battle with his lightning. Zeus struck Typhon square in the chest with the Master Bolt at point blank range, greatly weakening him. The gods were then able to trap him under Mount Etna, where his raw power itself causes lava to ignite from the mountain top in the form of a volcano. After the defeat of her most powerful child, Gaea admitted defeat and fell back to sleep and allowed the gods to rule Olympus without interference.
From the waist up, Typhon takes on the appearance of a large man with long hair and a beard. He has big, burly hands and muscular arms that could reach down and pick you up as if you were a mere feather. From the waist down, two long tentacles like stilts go down and snake back up behind his back. With these tentacles, he has exceptional speed and they also increase his size even more. Many tentacles stick out from his body and there are some snakes in his hair, as well as a pair of demonic wings. He truly is a horrific sight.
Don't attempt to fight this monster without having at least a group of 8+ demigods, any fewer, is purely suicidal.
Typhon is one of the most powerful beings in all of Greek mythology. He rivals the combined powers of most, if not all the major Olympian gods. The full extent of his power is unknown. He can create storms of tremendous power including tornadoes, storms and possibly hurricanes. He has unbelievable physical strength and durability surpassing that of any individual god. He was able to fight most of the major gods to a near standstill, withstanding all of their attacks throughout including multiple attacks from the Master Bolt, numerous lesser thunderbolts, the arrows of Apollo and Artemis, and numerous other attacks. He was strong enough to hit Hephaestus with enough force to create a new lake and smash Dionysus deep into a mountain. He presumably has the standard powers of a god, but surpassing that of any other
Typhon has no known weaknesses
Using his powers, Typhon can do anything he wants to you. He can sweep you up in a thunderstorm, drown you in a tidal wave, haunt you with a wave of ghosts, or smash you into tiny pieces. His strength is rivaled by no other, and he can crush you with the tap of one of his mighty fingers. He can move as swiftly as the wind and attack from behind, bending the element of surprise in his favor. Basically, he can do anything that he wants to defeat his challengers.
