Cyclops

Greek - A one-eyed giant. Offspring of Uranus and Gaea or of Poseidon and Amphitrite. The Cyclopes rebelled against Uranus and were banished to Tartarus but were released by Cronus when he overthrew Uranus. Cronus locked them up in Tartarus once again but Zeus freed them to help him in his battle with the older gods. They provided Zeus with his favourite weapon, the thunderbolt, Hades with his helmet of invisibility and Poseidon with his trident, and they made a silver bow for Artemis. Other groups of Cyclopes built the walls of Tiryns and Mycenae. Working for their living they were called encheirogastes. The first three Cyclopes, Arges, Brontes and Steropes, were killed by Apollo to avenge the killing of Asclepius and their spirits inhabit Etna.
