The Protogenoi, or the Primordials, in Greek mythology, were the first beings that came into existence before the world was created. A great deal of them were not actually envisioned by the Greeks as having solid forms; instead, they were mainly personifications of their roles in the universe. The first of the Protogenoi was Chaos, who represented the endless void of nothingness that existed before the universe was created. The most well-known of the Protogenoi was Gaea, who represented the earth. Her son and husband Ouranos represented the sky. Ouranos was defeated by his son, Kronos, and the others, such as Gaea, were merely put to 'sleep' for eons.

Nyx, Protogenos of the Night

The Heroes of Olympus

Gaea, the Protogenos of the Earth, is the main antagonist of the series. Much like Kronos in the first series, she and her children, the Gigantes, are working to destroy the gods; however, they plan on destroying the original Mount Olympus in Greece, the gods' roots, since that is where the gods' power is truly held.
