Little is known about this being who claimed to be a god. He was somehow involved with time, and when he died – that is, killed by his daughter, Dis – his blood evaporated into the air and formed the invisible threads that created the tapestry of time.
So goes legend, anyway.
For some insane reason, Cronus decided to eat his son, Hades, who controls death. They say it was because Hades’ power scared him. They say that’s also why Dis took him out.
Dis defeated him through cleverness, wagers, and poison, freeing her brother – but not before Hades was changed.
