Brontes the Thunderer was the name given to one of the Cyclopes, one-eyed hybrid beasts created by the Isu as part of their Olympos Project. The creature was held in a vault below the Isle of Thisvi, where it remained until its defeat and death at the hands of the misthios Kassandra during the 5th century BCE.

After Kassandra defeated the Cyclops and removed the Atlantis artifact from its body, Brontes' transformation was undone, leaving only the desiccated corpse of a human.[1]

Personality and traits

Brontes had an almost animal psychology. He was a too aggressive being, intent on destroying any sign of movement. His attacks of rage made him able to shoot down even the most opponent competent.

Equipment and skills

The size of Brontes was two or three times greater than that of a man, his footsteps and blows could make a place tremble, he had such a brute force that he was able to knock down a target with a single blow in a few moments. His attacks of rage made him faster and more durable being almost invincible.

Trivia

  • Barnabas claimed to have encountered Brontes, and lost his right eye to the beast.[2]
  • In Greek mythology, Brontes was the name of one of the sons of Uranus and Gaia. The name meant 'thunder'.  He and his brothers, SteropesArges and the Hecatoncheires were cast into the pits of Tartarus by their father, who was ashamed of his monstrous sons. Kronus, who deposed Uranus shortly thereafter, freed them briefly before imprisoning them again. They were later freed by Zeus during the Titanomachy, and forged his famed thunderbolts, along with Poseidon's trident and Hades' helm of darkness.
    • After the Titanomachy, Brontes and his brothers were the architects of the palace citadel atop Mount Olympus and became the assistants of Hephaistos, out of respect as master smiths.
