In Greek mythology, Tethys (/ˈtiːθᵻs, ˈtɛθᵻs/; Greek: Τηθύς), was a Titan daughter of Uranus and Gaia, and the wife of her brother the Titan-god Oceanus, and the mother by him of the river gods and the Oceanids. Tethys had no active role in Greek mythology, and no established cults.
Lee Lawrie's colossal bronze Atlas, Rockefeller Center, New York. Atlas and his brother Menoetius sided with the Titans in their war against the Olympians. His brothers Prometheus and Epimetheus weighed the odds and betrayed the other Titans by forming an alliance with the Olympians. When the Titans were defeated, many of them were confined to Tartarus, but Zeus condemned Atlas to stand at the western edge of Gaia (the Earth) and hold up Uranus (the Sky) on his shoulders .
Tethys, daughter of Uranus and Gaia was an archaic Titaness and aquatic sea goddess. Tethys was both sister and wife of Oceanus. During the war against the Titans, Tethys raised and educated Hera as her step-child, who was brought to her by Rhea but there are no records of active cults for Tethys in historic times. Tethys has sometimes been confused with another sea goddess who became the sea-nymph Thetis, the wife of Peleus and mother of Achilles during Classical times.

Hekatonkheires( "Hundred-Handed Ones") were three giants of incredible strength and ferocity that surpassed that of all Titans whom they helped overthrow. Hesiod's Theogony (624, 639, 714, 734–35) reports that the three Hekatonkheires became the guards of the gates of Tartarus. Sons of Gaia and Uranus.

In classic mythology, below Uranus (sky), Gaia (earth), and Pontus (sea) is Tartarus, or Tartaros (Greek: from τάρταρον "tartar encrusting the sides of casks"). It is a deep, gloomy place, a pit, or an abyss used as a dungeon of torment and suffering that resides beneath the underworld. Plato wrote that souls were judged after death and those who received punishment were sent to Tartarus. Like other primal entities (such as the earth and time), Tartarus is also a primordial force or deity.
While the Greeks considered Cronus a cruel and tempestuous force of chaos and disorder, believing the Olympian gods had brought an era of peace and order by seizing power from the crude and malicious Titans, the Romans took a more positive and innocuous view of the deity, by conflating their indigenous deity Saturn with Cronus.

Sammi's still unconscious, so I'm just laying here and going down a Wikipedia rabbit hole and I've learned that in certain mythology, "Caelus" is used as a substitute for Uranus in the myth where he gets castrated, so I guess that's one thing we did accurately.
