Happiness and Cookies. XD I don't quite think that's what he was aiming for.

But Kronos (Chronos, Chronus: there's so many different spellings OTL) and Rhea were children of Gaia and Uranus also known as the earth and sky. Kronos overthrew his father because he wanted power and married Rhea (who's his sister). Kronos was super paranoid when Rhea had her babies because there was a prophecy that his children would overthrow him in the same way or something (It's been a while. I'm rusty xD) and so he swallowed all of his children. Rhea wasn't too happy about this so when she had Zeus, she tricked Kronos and gave him a rock to swallow instead. So long story short, Zeus defeated his father, freed his siblings (all the Greek Gods) and threw both his father and the titans into Tartarus (deepest part of hell).

But hey I also just found something really interesting that I didn't know: "Many human generations later, Zeus released Kronos and his brothers from this prison, and made the old Titan king of the Elysian Islands, home of the blessed dead. "

So. . . Chronos is the place for the people who are the elites. . .and if Elyurias was named after Elysium. . .maybe these were the people who were going to help No.6 reach that goal.
