List of Age of Mythology characters
||This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page.
Characters from both campaigns
Arkantos (voiced Daniel Riordan) is the protagonist in Fall of the Trident. Living on Atlantis when it was raided by pirates, he took up arms against the pirates when he was fourteen. His wife was killed by pirates at some time. Arkantos grew stronger and wiped out the pirates in the area.
The campaign begins with Krios the theocrat urging Arkantos to join the Greek army in Troy, but Arkantos initially refuses. However, when the Pirate-bandit overlord Kamos stole the trident from a statue of Poseidon, Arkantos travels to Troy to regain the god's favor. He and Ajax, on their way back home from a side trip to the Trojan War, stop at Iolcos to repair their ships and find the city taken by pirates. They free the centaur Chiron, who has been imprisoned by Kemsyt (an Egyptian assassin working for Gargarensis), and pursue the cyclops Gargarensis. Gargarensis attempted to free Kronos, imprisoned behind 4 adamantine doors in Tartarus, which could only be opened by a mortal's hand in exchange for immortality.
Gargarensis, thwarted by Arkantos, closed the gate to Tartarus and escaped with his minion, Kemsyt, to the Norselands, followed by Arkantos. Gargarensis escaped for Atlantis and the fourth, and final, gate. After arriving in Atlantis, Gargarensis proceeded to the Temple to Poseidon to pray. Poseidon, hearing his son's words, animated a statue of himself and destroyed the Temple, under which lay the last Gate. Arkantos saved the Atlantean refugees and battled Gargarensis alone. Arkantos, empowered by Zeus, stopped Gargarensis in his tracks by killing the statue. In the chaos following the statue's destruction, Gargarensis was impaled by the Trident which his minion, Kamos, stole. Athena made Arkantos immortal, setting him to guard Atlantis. Arkantos's special ability is his battle cry that that strengthens allied units around him and, after being blessed by Zeus, he transformed from Arkantos (Hero) into Arkantos (uber).
In "New Atlantis", he appears briefly as an immortal god guiding his son, Kastor, in his quest,and watching over the people of Atlantis. In the in-game dictionary, Arkantos is mentioned as the minor god of Titan-stopping. Arkantos (Hero), Arkantos(uber), Arkantos(god) and Boar Arkantos(Hero) are available in editor mode, with Arkantos god being one of the most powerful (if not the most powerful) unit in the game. It is interesting to note that Arkantos' name i
Ajax (voiced by Charlie Rocket) is a renowned Greek warrior, son of the king of Salamis, excelled only by Achilles. He accompanies Arkantos to Ioklos. He was transformed into a boar by Circe. Ajax is typically the "brawn" of the team. He has a violent personality. In The New Atlantis, Ajax is soon-to-be-King of Salamis, sent leading a company of Greek troops to confront Kastor and the Atlanteans because of their unexplained attack on Sikyos, but joins Kastor after realizing he had been tricked by Kronos' servant. Ajax wields a spear and a large shield. His special attack is a shield bash that knocks enemy foot soldiers back a short distance.
Amanra (voiced by Jean Gilpin) is a Nubian mercenary leader, the daughter of a warchief and a devotee of Isis. At an early age, Amanra went with her father into battles, establishing her reputation as a legendary fighter. Amanra's commander is a man of great incompetence who got his position through his friendship with Amanra. In Fall of the Trident, Arkantos encounters Amanra after emerging from the underworld in Egypt, where he helps her to bring Osiris back to life, knowing that Osiris has the power to stop Gargarensis and his ally Kemsyt from opening the entrance to the underworld in Egypt. Amanra afterwards follows Arkantos throughout the remainder of his journey. In The New Atlantis Amanra, now a Nubian queen, is in charge of the Egyptian forces sent to reinforce Sikyos against Kastor and the Atlantean invaders. After learning of Kastor's deception by the Servant of Kronos, she joins him in his mission to stop the Titans from escaping Tartarus.
Amanra wields a bladed staff and shield possibly wooden framed and zebra skin as the shield sheet and her special ability is to take a great leap, sometimes allowing her to jump over walls in much the same manner as an Anubite.
Folstag (voiced by Michael Bell) is a frost giant notorious throughout Midgard as a raider and pillager, enjoying throwing cabins and eating cattle. In Fall of the Trident, Skult tricks Arkantos into showing the flag of Folstag to the Norse clans, claiming that they will rally under it. Upon seeing the flag, however, the Norsemen become enraged and attack Arkantos and his men. In The New Atlantis, Folstag, now a king, having changed his ways and gained respect among giants and men alike, offers his aid and that of his fellow frost giants to Kastor in fighting the titan who has emerged in the Norselands after the gods's hold on Tartarus weakened. He eventually summons the dragon Nidhogg, which he has tamed, to assist the heroes.
Folstag has the ability to freeze titans with his breath (but not ordinary units).
In Fall of the Trident and in The New Atlantis the Guardian, a giant statue resembling the Egyptian jackal-headed god Anubis, helps defeat Kemsyt's army. The Guardian is nearly invincible - in the mission where the player must take the Guardian's sword to the statue in order to awaken it, the newly-revived statue is able to fight Kemsyt's army single-handed, taking only a slight amount of damage.
In The New Atlantis the guardian is revived to fight the titan in Egypt by a Son of Osiris. In this chapter, the Guardian is said to be powerful enough to overcome even a lesser Titan, and will require minimal help from the player in fighting the titan Cerberus.
Born in Atlantis, Kastor (voiced by Daniel Riordan) is the son of Arkantos and has never known his mother, who was killed by pirates many years ago. Kastor sees himself as a great warrior, but, although brave, he is not quite what he thinks he is. He would love nothing more than to fight a war by his father's side. Kastor sometimes cares for the Theocrat Krios's horses. In Fall of the Trident, he is fourteen years old and, although he wishes to accompany Arkantos to the Trojan War, must stay home in Atlantis in case of another pirate raid. Kastor makes only 3 appearances in the game.
Kastor is the protagonist ten years later in The New Atlantis and the leader of the Atlantean people. Kronos's minion disguised as Krios tells him of a land much more hospitable than the Atlanteans' colony in the Norselands; Kastor leads his people through a mysterious portal to a lush and bountiful island. Upon arriving, Kastor encounters ruined temples constructed in honor of the Titans and concludes that the Atlanteans have found favor in their eyes, and subsequently orders the temples' repair. The Greek inhabitants of the island attack the Atanteans upon discovering the Atlanteans' reconstruction of the Titan temples. Kastor pursues the Greeks to their Greek city-state of Sikyos where he defeats the army of Sikyos and kills its commander, Melagius. Before Kastor's army can take the city, however, Egyptian and Norse allies of Sikyos arrive to reinforce it. Kastor initiates attacks on both Egypt and Midgard to force the Egyptian and Norse troops at Sikyos to withdraw to defend their homelands, leaving Sikyos defenseless. Upon the return of Kastor and his forces to Sikyos, Kronos's servant reveals a portal leading to Mount Olympus. After setting foot on Mount Olympus, Kastor desires only to climb to the summit of the mountain, which returns him to Sikyos.
It is here that the servant of Kronos makes himself known, and reveals to Kastor that his intent was to weaken the hold of the gods on the gates of Tartarus enough for the Titans to escape. Kastor is attacked by a group of Atlanteans who believe he betrayed his people, but is rescued by Ajax and Amanra. Later, in Midgard, they meet the Frost Giant Folstag, now a king, and fight the Titan Ymir. Kastor returns to New Atlantis (the island to which the Atlanteans went through the portal) and confront the servant of Kronos there, who escapes through another portal. In following him, the heroes arrive on the remains of Old Atlantis, location of the gate from which Kronos nearly succeeded in escaping in the previous campaign. Kronos succeeds in escaping from Tartarus by himself with the power of the Olympians broken. With the help of the Titan Gaia, Kastor banishes Kronos to Tartarus and kills his servant. Upon his victory, Arkantos appears to Kastor and confirms him as the new ruler of Atlantis.
In Fall of the Trident, Kastor is a weak hero unit who wields a sword. In The New Atlantis, Kastor is a hero unit armed with two swords whose special ability is a powerful sword attack which sends human units flying.
Krios (voiced by Lloyd Sherr) is the elderly theocrat who rules Atlantis on behalf of Poseidon. In Fall of the Trident, it is he who proposes that Arkantos join the Greeks fighting the Trojan War. Although initially unwilling to go, Arkantos is convinced by Krios. In The New Atlantis he escaped Atlantis following its destruction and established an Atlantean colony in the Norselands. At the beginning of the campaign, Kronos's servant kills Krios and assumes his appearance, deceiving the Atlanteans into freeing the Titans.
Nidhogg, is a mighty dragon of the Norse lands. It resembles a dragon with a reptilian moose-like head. The dragon was tamed and summoned by King Folstag in Age of Mythology the titans. The dragon was used to defeat the mighty Norse titan Ymir. The dragon in Norse mythology is believed to have been imprisoned under ground in niflhiem, and trapped under a cage of roots. The dragon is believed to be relentlessly gnawing at them to escape his prison, but is unsuccessful in the process at the moment(if you will excuse the expression).
Characters exclusively from Fall of the Trident
Agamemnon (voiced by Peter Renaday) is the king of Mycenae (or Argos). He initiated the Trojan War after Helen, the queen of Sparta, was abducted by Paris, the Trojan prince. Menelaus, the king of Sparta, is Agamemnon's brother. He is aided by Arkantos in the war.
Agamemnon is a hero unit who fights with his fists explained because he "lost his spear along the way". He is a weak hero who can resurrect when killed.
Brokk (voiced by Warren Burton) is a dwarf and the older brother of Eitri. He and his brother show the heroes the way into Midgard after the heroes help reclaim the dwarves' forge from giants. Later he, along with his brother, reforge Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, allowing Thor to seal the gate to Tarturus that Kronos is about to escape through.
Brokk is a hero unit who possesses the same resource-gathering abilities as the dwarf unit. He can collect any resource, but is especially efficient at mining gold. Brokk and his brother are both featured in The Golden Gift campaign, which can be downloaded from the official Age Of Mythology website.
Chiron (voiced by Bob Sampson) is a centaur renowned for his wisdom. He is freed by Arkantos and Ajax from bandits in Ioklos and afterwards joins the heroes in their quest. In Egypt, he assisted his companions by leading the force that retrieved the Head of Osiris from the Tamarisk Tree. As the heroes later attempt to escape a band of Fire Giants in league with Gargarensis in Nifelheim, he sacrifices himself by toppling a large boulder to block the path of the giants, saving his comrades but ensuring his death as the giants overwhelm him. Though he appears as a guardian of Mount Olympus in the expansion pack campaign, he is likely there simply as a random hero, as this version of Chiron is a unit trainable by the worshipers of Hades, and not the regenerating hero unit from the original campaign. Aside from Gargarensis, Kemsyt, and Kamos, Chiron is the only main character whose death was seen, known and confirmed in Age of Mythology.
Chiron is a hero unit who possesses abilities similar to those of the centaur unit, and is unique in being the only hero of the Centaur race. His special ability allows him to fire three arrows at once. In ancient Greek mythology, Chiron was the name of the only centaur who was not violent towards humans.
Circe is a sorceress who rules an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Upon the arrival of Odysseus and his men on the island, she transforms them into pigs, and transforms Arkantos and Ajax into boars after they too arrive on the island. With the help of Zeus, the men are transformed back into human beings, and attack and destroy Circe's keep before escaping the island. Circe is a half magician unit and has the ability to fire thunderbolts through her staff dealing a very large amount of damage. Unlike most heroes, she does not regenerate.
In mythology, Circe is a witch who transformed Odysseus and his men into pigs.
Eitri (voiced by Joe Nipote) is a dwarf and the younger brother of Brokk. Eitri is a hero unit who possesses the same resource-gathering abilities as the dwarf unit. He can collect any resource, but is especially efficient at mining gold.
Eitri and his brother are both featured in The Golden Gift campaign, which can be downloaded from the official Age of Mythology website.
Gargarensis (voiced by J. D. Hall) is a Cyclops and one of Poseidon's offspring. He is the main antagonist of Fall of the Trident. Gargarensis has a grudge against Poseidon due to Poseidon's seduction of Gargarensis' great-grandmother. Nevertheless, he decides to help Poseidon release Kronos from Tartarus in hopes of receiving immortality as a reward. He is, consequently, the enemy of Arkantos, who seeks to prevent him from releasing Kronos. Gargarensis very nearly succeeded in releasing Kronos from Tartarus in Niflheim, but failed because of Thor's last-minute help. Upon returning to Atlantis, Arkantos discovers Gargarensis has captured the city and is attempting to open a fourth gate to Tartarus buried beneath the city, previously unknown to the Atlanteans. In order to aid Gargarensis, Poseidon brings a large statue to life, which bears the god's own appearance. In the ensuing battle, Arkantos defeats the living Poseidon statue by ramming his spear into it, causing it to topple and its trident impale Gargarensis. He frequently quotes the poem Lepanto by Gilbert Keith Chesterton during cutscenes.
Gargarensis is a cyclops hero armed with a trident, who possesses the ability to pick up and hurl human soldiers, similar to the special attack of a cyclops but with the additional power to kill many surrounding units as well.
Greta Forkbeard is the daughter of the Norse chieftain Forkbeard and plays the role of the damsel in distress. After she is kidnapped by giants, Arkantos rescues her to gain the confidence of her father, a leader of a Norse tribe and also to unite the Norse clans. While incredibly ugly, according to the in-game dictionary, she "has a great personality."
Kamos (voiced by Peter Lurie) is a minotaur who is one of the two main mortal allies of Gargarensis, a Cyclops Hero. He is an old enemy of Arkantos; his wife was murdered by Kamos' pirates. At an early age, Kamos was kidnapped by an Egyptian fishing ship and raised by the goddess Bast.Kamos is missing one hand, which he lost when attempting to hand-feed a Leviathan, later replaced with a khopesh. Kamos' first act against Arkantos is a raid on Atlantis in which he steals the trident held by the Poseidon statue in Atlantis' harbor. Arkantos pursues him to an island base where he recovers the trident, though Kamos escapes. Arkantos and Ajax later encounter and kill Kamos during a raid on one of his pirate bases.
Kamos is a hero unit whose special ability is a gore attack similar to that of the minotaur unit, but is more powerful.
Kemsyt (voiced by Danny Mann) leads a band of Egyptian raiders and is the archenemy of Amanra. He is shrewd, cunning and cowardly. He is one of the two main mortal allies of Gargarensis and works with him to prevent the god Osiris from being resurrected. After the heroes revive the dead Osiris, Kemsyt flees with Gargarensis to the Norselands. When Gargarensis's army is defeated, Kemsyt is captured and an illusion was cast on him by Skult (Loki) to make him look like the cyclops. Ajax says, "This is for Chiron", jumps and beheads him. Upon their journey back to Atlantis, the heroes discover that they have beheaded Kemsyt when a soldier removes his head from a box, intending to lash it to the bow upon their entering Atlantis's harbor.
Kemsyt is a hero unit armed with a khopesh, but has no special abilities. However, unlike most hero characters, he benefits from infantry upgrades as well as hero upgrades, and is therefore counted as an infantry unit and a hero. This causes a few scenrio bugs; a computer Norse player with Kemsyt in play will attempt to build with him (even though he cannot build) and thus be unable to proceed further.
Niordsir leads a small group of Norse soldiers and ox carts. He is sent by Reginleif to follow Gargarensis to Egypt. He joins Chiron in his quest to retrieve the head of Osiris and later becomes a Hersir. In the Norselands, he is shown as Niordsir himself, even though he does not speak.
Odysseus (voiced by Sean Donnellan) is the king of Ithaca, husband of Penelope, father of Telemachus and hero of The Odyssey. Arkantos aids him and the other Greeks in the Trojan War, and helps him and his men escape from the isle of Circe, where they have been transformed into pigs. Upon Arkantos' final confrontation with Gargarensis in the Norselands, Odysseus arrives with troops to reinforce Arkantos. In the Titans game, he is one of many heroes protecting Mount Olympus, and is likely killed by Kastor's men.
Odysseus is a hero unit armed with a bow with no special attack.
Reginleif (voiced by Tasia Valenza) is a valkyrie who is 1028 years old. It is stated in her biography that she had been banned from Valhalla, and that she is helping the heroes on Earth in order to regain the trust of the gods.
She first appears after Skult's treason, revealing his identity to Arkantos and guiding him through Midgard, explaining the customs to him. It is later stated that she commanded Eitri and Brokk to forge a new Hammer for Thor, after the original was destroyed by Loki. After it is revealed that Thor's Mjolnir is the only weapon in Midgard which could seal the gates to Tatarus, she defends the dwarf with Arkantos, killing the dragon Nidhogg with her javelin. After Gargarensis' defeat, she remains in Midgard as Arkantos returns to Atlantis.
Reginleif is a hero unit based on the Valkyrie unit, healing her allies, and also benefits from the Valkryie's upgrade technology. She, however, is a footwoman hurling javelins.
Setna (voiced by Lloyd Sherr) is an Egyptian high priest allied with Amanra. He helps Arkantos resurrect the god Osiris. Setna is the only Egyptian character in the game who is a real historical character. The historical Setna Khaenwaset was a son of Ramesses the Great, and was indeed a priest and magician. He was the High Priest of Ptah (as opposed to High Priest of Osiris in the game), and is known for his restoration of the Apis cult and of the Pyramid of Unas, and his search for the mystical Book of Thoth. The reign of his father, Ramesses, has sometimes been portrayed as contemporaneous with the Trojan War, so Setna's appearance isn't entirely fantastical.
Unlike other priests, Setna has a slightly higher attack and can carry relics.
Skult (voiced by Warren Burton) is an elderly magician who is the god Loki in disguise. In Fall of the Trident, he assists Gargarensis upon his arrival in the Norselands. When the heroes first encounter him, he claims to be able to help them unite the Norse tribes against Gargarensis, and gives them a flag which he claims the Norse tribes will rally under. When the heroes reveal the flag to the feuding tribes, however, they become enraged and attack them. Upon Arkantos questioning Skult, he laughs at him and escapes by transforming into ravens. Arkantos is afterward informed by Reginleif that the flag is that of Folstag's band of frost giants, who are notorious pillagers, and that this was a favorite trick of Loki's. Since Loki was imprisoned after the events that followed Baldr's death in the Norse mythos, Loki's presence seems to suggest that the campaign takes place before or during these events.
Skult is a hero unit that is fast, but cannot attack; his in-game description claims that his special attack is giving up and running away, but it may be regeneration.
Theris is an Anubite whom Arkantos is said to have killed and banished to the underworld prior to the events of Fall of the Trident. Arkantos encounters him and kills him in a dream at the beginning of the campaign and again during a later dream he has while in Egypt. Theris also had a bad relationship with Kamos.
Theris has the same abilities as an ordinary Anubite unit other than the fact that he is a hero (as opposed to normal Anubites) and he appears surrounded in flames. Note that the special attacks of myth units work against him as well as Ornlu and Polaris so there are doubts as to whether he is a true hero unit.
Characters exclusively from The New Atlantis
General Melagius is a military commander of the Greek city-state of Sikyos. Noted for his ego, he is said to have set an entire company of soldiers to polishing his shield and armor and ordered the construction of numerous statues of himself throughout Sikyos's territory. Upon Kastor's arrival at Sikyos to demand an explanation for the Greeks' attack his people suffered, Melagius takes Kastor for hostile. In the ensuing battle, Melagius is killed. In this scenario, Kastor gains soldiers from destroying Melagius statues. Melagius is a hero unit who possesses a battle cry ability similar to that of Arkantos.
Servant of Kronos
The Servant of Kronos (voiced by Lloyd Sherr) is a creature that was actually created from Kronos while he is imprisoned in Tartarus. It is more an extension of Kronos' will than an individual being. After being ordered by Kronos to "make way for the Titans", it kills Krios and assumes his form, and then deceives the Atlanteans into replacing monuments to the Olympian gods with those of the Titans, shifting the balance of power so that the power of the Olympian gods can no longer hold the Titans in Tartarus. After Kronos is rebanished to Tartarus, his servant tries to escape, but is killed by Kastor.
In the campaign, Cerberus is depicted as a "lesser" Titan that has been imprisoned in Tartarus, despite his differing origin and role in the mythology. In this game, he is depicted as a Titan with three dog heads on him. Upon the Titan's escape from Tartarus, Cerberus appears in Egypt and begins to wreak havoc by destroying the pyramid of Osiris in Abydos. Kastor and the other heroes use a "god-empowered" form of a pharaoh, a Son of Osiris, to revive the Guardian, which in Fall of the Trident was used to defeat Kemsyt's army but here defeats Cerberus. If the player was fighting an Egyptian Colony, he would have to kill the titan form of Ra.
Ymir, an enormous frost giant, is the Norse equivalent of a Titan for the purposes of the game. He appears in Midgard upon the escape of the Titans from Tartarus. With the help of Folstag and his fellow frost giants, the heroes succeed in defeating Ymir. Though Ymir is not named in the campaign, several statements by Ensemble Studios refer to him as the Norse Titan, which raises the question of how Ymir ended up in Tartarus to be released as a lesser Titan in the campaign after being killed by Odin, as the Norse mythos states. It should be noted that the Norse Titan's model name in the animation editor is actually "TitanTroll", probably because it looks slightly like a much larger version of an ordinary troll. It should also be noted that the name Ymir should also be considered incorrect because of another reason. It is stated by Snorri Sturlson, and other famous Norse mythological poets and interpreters, that Ymir was the first living being to exist, and that the god Odin and his brothers had slew Ymir to create the cosmos. His blood became the oceans. His midsection was crafted as the land and named Midgard(the home of mortal men). And his cranium was used as Asgard(the home of the gods). Due to this fact of Ymir's demise, it would be incorrect to name the Norse titan after this mythological figure. Whatever the game player wants the beast to be named however, is their choice.
Ra, The Egyptian god Ra is not a titan. It is uncertain why he was chosen to fight as one of the lumbering beasts, but he is still just a powerful as the other lesser titans. Instead of rising up from Tartarus, he comes down from the heavens on flaming wings, and then sheds them when he lands. His special attack is the same as Chthonian.
Chthonian, A gigantic monster of molten rock and stone, this Titan is the one most closely resembling the genuine "lesser titans" of Greek mythology, which wreaked havoc and rampaged through man's settlements on Earth until imprisoned by Zeus in Tartarus.
The following Olympian Gods are featured in this series:
Zeus is the King of the Olympian Gods, the Olympian God of Thunder and Lightning and the brother of Hades and Poseidon. And one of the Big Three (Zeus, Poseidon, Hades)
Aphrodite is the Olympian Goddess of Love and Beauty.
Apollo is the Olympian God of the Sun and the twin brother of Artemis. Let's not forget he is also the god of poetry and literature.
Ares is the Olympian God of War and Destruction.
Artemis is the Olympian Goddess of Wild Animals and the twin sister of Apollo.
Athena (voiced by Carole Ruggier) is the Olympian Goddess of Wisdom. She appears to Arkantos in dreams on more than one occasion, guiding him on his way and serving as a narrator for the campaign. At the end of the campaign, she resurrects Arkantos into a god. She is also available as a nigh-invincible hero unit in the editor, but cannot attack.
Dionysus is the Olympian God of Wine and Revelry.
Hades is the Olympian God of the Underworld and the brother of Zeus and Poseidon.
Hephaestus is the Olympian God of the Forge and the Blacksmith of the Olympians.
Hera is the Queen of the Olympian Gods and the Olympian Goddess of the Home.
Hermes is the Messenger of the Olympian Gods.
Poseidon is the Olympian God of the Sea and Horses, as well as the founder of Atlantis. He is one of Zeus's brothers. Jealous of Zeus' position as chief of the Olympian gods, he is lured by Kronos into aiding Gargarensis in his mission to free Kronos from Tartarus. Upon Gargarensis' defeat, Zeus is said to severely punish Poseidon for his betrayal of the Olympians. Poseidon brings a statue of himself to life to aid Gargarensis. This happens in the final scenario of Fall of the Trident.
The following Egyptian Gods are featured in this series:
Isis is the Egyptian Goddess of Magic and consort of Osiris.
Nephthys is the Egyptian Goddess of Death.
In The Fall of the Trident, the heroes attempt to find and reunite the pieces of Osiris' body and resurrect him so that he can prevent Gargarensis from opening Tartarus, while Gargarensis and Kemsyt seek to find and destroy the pieces of Osiris' body and prevent his resurrection. Osiris' throne is seated atop the entrance to the Underworld, and his resurrection would prevent Gargarensis from entering the Underworld in Egypt. After he is resurrected, Osiris destroys Gargarensis and Kemsyt's army and forces them to flee Egypt. Osiris's resurrection marks a departure between the campaign's story and the Egyptian mythos; in the mythology Isis had already found the pieces of Osiris and buried them in Giza, Egypt.
Ptah is the Egyptian Creator God and the God of Craft.
Set is the Egyptian God of the Desert and Storms, also chaos. He was responsible for killing Osiris.

In the Age of Mythology: The Titans, the Titans are shown to be worshipped by the Atlanteans.
Oranos is the Titan God who embodies the Sky; he is the husband of Gaia, and the father of Kronos and the other eleven original Titans. He appeared in "Age of Mythology: The Titans." If the player allies with him, Oranos will provide sky passages.
Gaia is the Titan Goddess and embodiment of the Earth. She was born of Chaos. She is the wife of Oranos, and the mother of Kronos and the other eleven original Titans. Unlike many of the other Titans, Gaia is non-destructive. By spreading her lush over the ruins of Sikyos, she weakens the Titan Prometheus enough for the heroes to defeat him. Upon Kronos' escape from Tartarus, Gaia is summoned by the heroes to confront him and succeeds in banishing him back to Tartarus. It is implied that Gaia becomes the patron goddess of New Atlantis after the events of the campaign.
In Greek mythology, she wanted Kronos free and was angry at Zeus for imprisoning the Titans.
Kronos (voiced by Lloyd Sherr) is the King of the Titans and the final 'boss' of the Titans game. He was a son of Gaia. He has the ability to control time. The Servant tells Kastor in the last two missions of the game that Zeus is so weak that he can no longer maintain control over the gate in old Atlantis and this is where Kronos will take 'his first steps outside of Tartarus'. When Kastor plants the Seeds of Gaia to summon her, he must defend them. When one minute of the allotted time to summon her elapses, The Gate breaks and 'Kronny' praises the return of Kronos at whom Kastor stares in awe. Kronos' appearance in the game is that of a demon with smoke and fire oozing out of his sores. He is almost impossible to destroy due to his high regeneration and can kill several units in one hit with his close combat attacks. Interestingly, he does not speak during the last mission. Gaia is the only unit able to defeat him and when she is summoned throws him back into Tartarus and turns the broken gate into lush greenlands before departing. Kronos has 50000 hitpoints (the same as Prometheus) and regenerates very quickly, possibly over 1000 hp per second, and has 70 attack (the same as a normal Titan), yet when harmed, he automatically regenerates. Not even Arkantos can hurt him. The only units in the game that can beat Kronos are Gaia (she has a special attack against her son) and Osiris, though only over time. Kronos as a unit appears to be more of a rampaging gigantic demon than a god (as such is with the other Titans in the game). He has black rays of darkness enhancing his power (when moving and idle) around his arms and legs.
Rheia is the Queen of the Titans and the Titan Goddess of Fertility.
Atlas is the Titan God who holds the world on his shoulders.
Hecate is the Titan Goddess of Witchcraft.
Helios is the Titan God of the Sun.
Hyperion is the Titan God of Burning Light and Observation.
Leto is a Titan Goddess of the Unseen who is the mother of Apollo and Artemis.
Oceanus is a Titan God of the Sea.
Prometheus is the Titan God of Forethought who formed man out of clay. Unlike the Titans that sided with Kronos, he was not banished to Tartarus after the Olympian Gods came into power as he had sided with the Olympian Gods. After stealing fire from the gods and giving it to man, however, Zeus had him chained to the side of a mountain and let a vulture devour his liver every day (the liver regenerated every night), but eventually Heracles released him. Some time after that, Chiron was doomed to an eternity of agony. He gave Prometheus his immortallity (Prometheus was mortal at the time). After that, Prometheus had became a full fledged Titan.
After the conclusion of Fall of the Trident, Zeus imprisoned Prometheus in Tartarus, believing him to have been in league with Poseidon. In The New Atlantis, Prometheus is among the first of the Titans to escape from Tartarus, after which he destroyed the Greek city-state of Sikyos. The heroes are initially forced to flee, but later, after defeating the Titans that emerged in Egypt and Midgard, return to Sikyos (which by then is nothing but rubble). Using Gaia's lush to envelop the traces of Prometheus' destruction (from which he draws his power), the heroes succeed in weakening Prometheus enough for them to defeat him. Prometheus has 50,000 hitpoints and whenever hurt, auto-regenerates. He was defeated because of intervention by Gaia but in the campaign he is destroyed by Arkantos and Gaia's help.
In-game, he appears to have a clay-like, ragged, bumpy skin, and can roll clumps of his skin into balls, hurtling them at his opponents as his special attack before they themselves turn into Prometheans.
Theia is the Titan Goddess of Sight.
