In the days of old, the world was at peace and all was well—until it wasn't.
Zeus, to the understanding of none, started a fight with the Primordials—known to be stronger and more powerful than even the King of the Gods. For reasons unknown, he ordered all of his people into battle with the ancient ones and the ones who didn't go willingly, he forced.
Somehow, be it luck or something else, he landed a killing blow on the youngest of Nyx's children. This enraged Erebus and Nyx and they turned all of their concentrated ire on Zeus. None of the other gods could get to his side to aid him as they had their own battles to deal with.
They battled for several weeks but in the end, Zeus was overcome. In an explosion and a flash of light that could be seen for days, Zeus was destroyed. However, in the backlash, all of the other gods also disappeared and were sent into a never ending cycle of death and rebirth.
Erebus and Nyx did their best to keep everything running, but they were not ones that were happy ruling and overseeing things. They and the rest of their family did what they could, but the arrival of other created gods caused belief in the old ones to start to fade as they got weaker, one by one they also were sent into a cycle of death and reincarnation.
It's now present day and the gods have begun waking up in Olympia, Washington...
