History

The Gods of Olympus are one of the oldest Pantheons, having known multiple generations and incarnations over the millenia.
The first of the Olympians came with the very first generation of Gods, children of Ouranos and Gaia (though it was recently discovered the Primarchs predated even them). They grew up alongside what would later become the first of the Deva and the Nga Tama a Rangi. The oldest among them refused the tyranny of their parents, and together overthrew them in the First Titanomachy, the final blow being struck by Kronus, who would become the first King of Olympus.
Over the centuries, Kronus and his brethren turned to Titans, and it was the turn of their own children, led by Zeus, to overthrow them. Because of these continuous cycles of violence and conflict, those who stand on top of Olympus have shifted dramatically over time, and the ones known today as Olympians are but the latest roster of an ever-shifting group.

The Theoi is obsessed about personal success and ability. Legend is not about being born special, it is about rising from the mediocrity of the masses to become exceptional. It is no accident that the Olympic Games began in Greece, and the Olympians champion anyone willing to rise to greatness.

This has led them to be a Pantheon known for their rashness, with Godborns more focused on their own greatness - to sometimes a narcissistic degree - than on the mission, the greater picture, or those around them. They are like hurricanes, blasting every obstacle apart but destroying everything around them.
