What is a divine counterpart
The Giants are the children of Gaia and Tartarus. They were banished to Tartarus by the gods.
Roles in the books Edit source]
They only appear in the Heroes of Olympus series. When the titans were defeated by Percy Jackson and his friends and thrown into Tartarus, Gaia was very angry with them and unleashed their other children, the giants. These were supposed to extinguish the gods and demigodities. Every giant is made to defeat an Olympic deity and take his place, its negative counterpart, so to speak.
Appearance [edit | Edit source]
According to Hesiod, the giants "were brightly flashed with weapons, long-spear in their hands." Apollodorus describes them as unsurpassed in their size and strength, of fearsome appearance and with snake scales on their sides
Lower legs. According to Claudian, they were armed with clubs, tree trunks and boulders, and according to Ovid they could even use their forces to tower mountains, Diodorus and Gaius Valerius Flaccus only mention their enormous size. As king and leader of the giants, Homer names the Eurymedon.
A motif that was often depicted in the visual arts was giants with legs that end in snake bodies, as Ovid describes them. The best-known representation is the giant frieze of the Pergamon Altar, which shows the battle of the giants against the Olympic gods during the Gigantomachy. Pausanias, on the other hand, considers the idea of snakes instead of feet to be absurd. Nonnos, in turn, describes them with snake hair and two hundred hands.
