GARborg Briareos Hecatonchires

Briareos Hecatonchires

Briareos is a trained SWAT officer, as well as the lover of Deunan (her point man). He works with Deunan in Olympus during the Appleseed crisis. He is a cyborg as his body was severely damaged in battle.

Hecatonchires

The Hecatonchires, or Hekatonkheires , were three gargantuan figures of an archaic stage of Greek mythology. According to Hesiod they were children of Gaia and Uranus, simply the issue of Earth and Sky, or of Earth and Sea thus part of the very beginning of things in the submerged prehistory of Greek myth, though they played no part in cult. They were known as Briares the Vigorous, also called Aigaion (Latinized as Aegaeon) the “sea goat”, Cottus the Striker or the Furious, and Gyges (or Gyes) the Big-Limbed. Their name derives from the Greek ἑκατόν (hekaton; “hundred”) and χείρ (kheir; “hand”), “each of them having a hundred hands and fifty heads” (Bibliotheca). They were giants of incredible strength and ferocity, even superior to that of the Titans, whom they helped overthrow, and the Cyclopes. In Latin poetry, the Hecatonchires were known as the Centimani, which simply translates “Hundred-Handed Ones.”

Hundred Hands ? Lucky Deunan.
