The Chosen Seven

The seven teen heroes were all Ordinary High School Students until Cronus escaped from Tartarus. The gods then collected them and brought them together so they could learn to be a team to defeat him. A bit of a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits, they quickly became Fire-Forged Friends and are extremely loyal to one another.

    Jay 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jaytitans_8222.png
The Leader.
Voiced by: Kirby Morrow

Descendant of Jason of the Argonauts. He has an instinct for leadership and his preferred weapon is a xiphos with a retractable blade.


  • Badass Normal: The only one of the heroes to lack any kind of superhuman ability; yet he has no problem charging into battle, and the team would be lost without his leadership.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Shares one with Theresa in the finale.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: With Theresa on occasion, though not nearly as bad as Archie.
  • Empathic Weapon: His sword and energy shield are this, to an extent.
  • Eureka Moment: Has these on occasion; Odie notes this at one point.
    "Jay, your random flashes of brilliance never cease to amaze me."
  • Famous Ancestor: Jason, leader of the Argonauts.
  • The Hero: They're all heroes, of course, but as the leader, Jay is sort of the prime example; he's also the one whom Cronus seems to consider his personal enemy.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Again, with Theresa.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: He starts out with this sort of attitude, being the only team member who doesn't have an exceptional ability.
  • Identical Grandson: To his ancestor Jason.
  • Ill Boy: He gets poisoned by one of Cronus's chimera, and the other heroes have to go into the Underworld to recover the aconite plant that will save him.
  • It's All My Fault: How he feels, as leader, when things go awry; it's especially pronounced in "Trojan Horse."
  • The Leader: His official position, as illustrated in the opening of each episode.
  • Mr. Exposition: Serves as this occasionally. Being the team member who knows the most about the ancient Greek myths, he's able to explain a lot of things to the other kids.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: More than any of the others.
  • Refusal of the Call: He tries for about thirty seconds in "Chaos 101", but then accepts it.
  • Ship Tease: With Theresa.
  • The Southpaw: Jay often wields his sword in his left hand, but also sometimes with his right, suggesting he may be ambidextrous. This is further confirmed by the fact that he is shown dual-wielding at least once.
  • Standardized Leader
  • The Team Normal

    Theresa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/theresatitan_2861.png
The Fighter.
Voiced by: Kelly Sheridan

Descendant of Theseus. Her mentor is Persephone.


  • Action Girl: As implied by her position, though to a lesser extent than Atlanta.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Shares one with Jay in the finale.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: With Jay on occasion.
  • Conflict Ball: Picks it up in the finale.
  • Drama Queen: Archie calls her this in "Eye for an Eye," lampshading her announcement of visions. She doesn't appreciate the remarks.
  • Famous Ancestor:
    • Theseus, and through him, Poseidon. She gets to meet the god for the first time in "Get Kraken"; he's very proud of her.
    • By extension, this also makes her a direct descendant of Cronus himself. Of course, he's not exactly sentimental about his family, what with all those Offing the Offspring attempts.
  • Fiery Redhead: Now and then.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Sometimes. Especially in the finale.
  • Impractical Musical Instrument Skills: Theresa plays the lyre about as well as Apollo himself, but occasionally rocks out with it as if it were an electric guitar.
  • It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: In the finale. She moves past it eventually.
  • Missing Mom: In "Many Happy Returns," she's shown having dinner with her father, but no mother is in sight.
  • Next Tier Power-Up: She went from being a precognitive to a psychokinetic and telepath to a full-on Power Parasite that could manifest an invulnerable aura ghost to steal powers from the Gods.
  • Number Two: To some extent, she serves as this to Jay.
  • Power Parasite: In the series finale, she gains the ability to steal the powers and divinity from the Gods, taking the abilities of Athena, Persephone, Hera, Ares, Hephaestus, Heracles, Cronus, Hermes, Poseidon, and eventually Zeus. The result of this makes her the most powerful being on Earth sans Gaea herself.
  • Psychic Powers: Her primary ability; Persephone tutors her. Initially, this mainly takes the form of premonitions and precognition. As she grows in mastery, Theresa also develops telepathy and telekinesis.
  • Ship Tease: With Jay.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly-girl to Atlanta's more tomboyish nature, although she's not nearly as blatant an example of this as many others.
  • Villain Has a Point: About the only thing anyone can say against her actions in the finale is that the power is driving her insane; the other teens do admit that being playthings of fate sucks royally and they would like normal lives again.
  • Welcome Back, Traitor: At the end of the finale.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Her father is a wealthy workaholic. Pictures in his office suggest that Theresa was a Daddy's Girl in the past. Nowadays, he pays very little attention to her.

    Herry 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/herrytitan_4239.jpg
The Brawn.
Voiced by: Ty Olsson

Descendant of Hercules, who is also his mentor.


  • Accidental Hero: As revealed in "Labour Day."
  • Big Brother Instinct: Do not hurt his teammates if you want to remain in one piece, especially the girls.
  • Big Eater: Lampshaded frequently. In one episode, the team is a bit late arriving at something because Herry was taking full advantage of an all-you-can-eat special.
  • The Big Guy: He's dubbed "the Brawn" and is the strongest member on the team.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Famous Ancestor: Hercules and, by extension, Zeus himself. However, while Theresa is directly informed that she's descended from Poseidon, Zeus being the father of Hercules is never mentioned in the series. This is probably because the creators didn't want to get into Zeus's infidelity issues from the old myths.
  • Farm Boy
  • Fatal Attractor: Every single female in whom Herry expresses an interest during the course of the series turns out to be either evil or controlled by Cronus.
  • Friendless Background: Growing up on an isolated farm didn't give Herry a lot of opportunities for making friends.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his size and strength, he has a very kind nature.
  • Hunk: Not conventionally handsome, but Herry has many of this trope's descriptive qualities, including the build and the square-ish face with prominent jaw.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Displays this dynamic with Atlanta frequently.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Both because Herry is fiercely protective of her and because she's a badass in her own right.
  • Old-School Chivalry: He has some tendencies in this direction; in particular, he gets very angry when anyone injures either of the girls, as seen in the episode with Sisyphus.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Herry's grandmother taught him to fight and is implied to have raised him.
  • Super Strength: Inherited from his ancestor Hercules.

    Odie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/odietitan_8595.png
The Brain.
Voiced by: Doron Bell Jr.

Descendant of Odysseus.


    Atlanta 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/atlantatitan_974.png
The Hunter.
Voiced by: Meghan Black (Season 1), Sarah Edmondson (Season 2)

One of the youngest of the heroes. She is super-fast, has exceptional reflexes and tracking abilities. Her mentor and Greek ancestor was originally stated to be Artemis, but it was later clarified that she is the descendant of Atalanta.


  • Action Girl: She wants to be seen as every bit as good as the guys - which she is. Furthermore, it runs in the family; she's the only one whose Famous Ancestor was female, and she was an Action Girl too.
  • Archer Archetype: In "Chaos 101", she's seen hunting with a traditional bow and arrows; on the team, she wields a small bow mounted on her right hand which fires energy arrows.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Archie.
  • Famous Ancestor: Atalanta, a lesser-known figure in Greek mythology; she was a beautiful woman who pledged to only marry the man who could defeat her in a footrace. note 
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Friend to All Living Things: She's shown more than once to be a passionate environmentalist. Furthermore, the hunter is a committed vegetarian.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: She hooks up with Pan in "The Nature of Things." He has red hair even darker than her own.
  • The Lancer: Arguably the sassiest member of the team.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Displays this dynamic with Herry frequently.
  • Oblivious to Love: She's apparently the only one who is unaware that Archie has it bad for her. She seems to cotton on eventually, though, and in one episode she finally admits to herself that she feels the same way. As the series progresses she becomes more physically affectionate with him, ultimately holding hands in the finale.
  • Official Couple: With Pan, for roughly half of one episode. However, he's a player, so the coupledom isn't as official as she thinks.
  • Ship Tease: With Archie.
  • Super Speed: Her special ability.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Theresa's girly-girl, although Atlanta has her girly qualities too.
  • Weapon of Choice: She started out using Bolas, but switched to her wrist-mounted energy crossbow after a fashion, citing the Bolas' fragility as the reason.

    Archie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/archietitan_4356.png
The Warrior.
Voiced by: Sam Vincent

Descendant of Achilles. He is super agile, almost as fast as Atlanta, and wields a "Hephaestus whip," a seeming cross between a chain whip and a rope dart, which cuts through anything. Hephaestus eventually upgraded it to an "Adamantine Whip," with the ability to hold Gods. Archie wears a distinctive gold brace covering his right shin and part of the foot, as he has a wonky heel.


  • Aborted Declaration of Love: He comes very close to dropping the L-word to Atlanta in one episode. He gets as far as "luh" and then quickly backtracks.
  • Adorkable: Arguably.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Atlanta.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Has this bad for Atlanta.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Everyone Can See It: Except, ironically, Atlanta herself. She catches on gradually, but it takes quite a while.
  • Famous Ancestor: Achilles.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Turns into one of these under the influence of Eris's anger-inducing cell phone ringtone. Jay attempts to help Atlanta understand a particular move during fighting class, and Archie flips out, accusing Jay of moving in on "[his] territory." Atlanta is not pleased.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Toward Atlanta.
  • Hidden Depths: In "Chaos 101", he admits to having read many of the old Greek poems.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: He cultivates a bit of an aloof facade, but Archie's a sweetheart underneath.
  • The Immune: As a descendant of Achilles, Archie has a natural resistance to any and all diseases.
  • It's All My Fault: Archie opens Pandora's Box, accidentally releasing an ancient disease called the Seeper into the world. Atlanta, Odie, and Herry all become infected, and he blames himself. Then he realizes that being The Immune means he can defeat the Seeper.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: He's strong, but not as much as Herry; fast and agile, but not as much as Atlanta; and smart, but not as smart as Odie. In a way, Archie has the perfect balance. If he has a specialty, it's probably being the best armed combatant; his Weapon of Choice seems trickiest to master.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: His power is literally invincibility.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: In "Eye for an Eye," Archie is repeatedly nasty to Theresa about her Psychic Powers, calling them "guessing games." She's visibly hurt by his behavior, which is wholly inconsistent with Archie's snarky-but-friendly nature throughout the rest of the series.
  • The Power of Love: In "Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself", Archie becomes afraid of everything after looking into the Mask of Phobos. It's implied that this is what snaps him out of it, when Atlanta is cornered by King Lykon and he's her only hope.
  • Ship Tease: With Atlanta.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Odie at times.
  • Whip It Good: His weapon of choice, a special unbreakable whip forged by Hephaestus.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: As noted on the main page, Archie is terrified of water.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple hair, in his case; Word of God is that he's actually got black hair (corroborated by his black eyebrows), so presumably he dyes it.

    Neil 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/neiltitan_1034.png
The Good Looking.
Voiced by: Ted Cole

Descendant of Narcissus. He works as a freelance model.


  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Almost literally. One of the fastest ways to distract Neil is to give him a mirror.
  • Blessed with Suck: By Nemesis in "Golden Boy", when she curses him with the Midas Touch.
  • Born Lucky: Pretty much the only thing that makes him useful.
  • Catching Some Z's: In "Prisoner Kampe", Neil is shown snoring loudly when he sleeps.
  • Chick Magnet: In a number of episodes, though generally they either turn out to be evil or else they're turned off by his enormous ego.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-universe example. In "Breathtaking Beauty", Neil pulls a prank on Odie that causes him to leave the movie theater in embarrassment. This leads to Herry being angry at Neil for what he did. This also leads to his date pouring her soda on him. Neil eventually apologizes to Odie at the end of the episode.
  • The Face: Subverted. In one episode, the team assumes he'll be good at this because of his attractiveness and charm, but he actually proves rather bad at it due to his lack of tact.
  • Famous Ancestor: Narcissus.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He loathes Adonis, resenting how good-looking and talented the legendary figure is. He also resents how much Adonis is adored by Aphrodite and many of the other mythic characters at the school.
  • The Heart: Albeit an incredibly self-absorbed and narcissistic one.
  • Insult Backfire: See Sarcasm-Blind below.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: He deeply wants to be prove to the team that he's a hero, due to their doubts about him being one.
  • It's All About Me: His Fatal Flaw; Neil can be incredibly self-absorbed.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yeah, he's selfish, but it's shown that he does genuinely care about his friends. Especially when he gets the poppies to help regain their memories.
  • The Load: Sort of. His self-absorbed nature and tendency to admire himself rather than helping the team has led him to be viewed as the most useless member.
    • Cronus expected him to be this and so targeted him in the pilot, figuring that he could get rid of the team's weakest link and thwart the prophecy.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Any time he does something useful, he makes sure to talk about it in the most glowing possible terms. He accidentally took out Medusa one time; he will probably talk about it forever, and the details become increasingly more exaggerated with every telling.
  • Narcissist: This is sort of a given considering his ancestor is where the word originates from to begin with.
  • Not a Morning Person: The only time he's seen with messy hair.
  • Pretty Boy: He's a model.
  • Proud Beauty: He says stuff like So Beautiful, It's a Curse occasionally, but he's just kidding. He loves it.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: When Cronus discovers that Neil has the Midas Touch, he sarcastically refers to him as Golden Boy. When Neil confronts Cronus again, he fully embraces the name, which leads to this response by Cronus:
    Yes, I know, I gave you that name. You know, if you weren't so idiotic, you might realize that I was mocking you.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: It's lampshaded by various characters, including Cronus.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Occasionally shows signs of this.

Antagonists

    Cronus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cronustitan_396.jpg
The Big Bad.
Voiced by: David Kaye

The primary antagonist of the series. Cronus was imprisoned since the Titanomachy in Tartarus by his sons Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. With the aligning of the planets on New Year's Eve, he is able to escape and exact revenge on Zeus and the Olympians as well as take over the world.


  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Apart from his first appearance.
  • Benevolent Boss: He's actually quite genial with his giant cohorts most of the time, noting that Agnon is his favorite and promising that they will each have a country to rule once he conquers humanity.
  • Big Bad
  • Composite Character: Cronus is predominantly based on Kronos, the father of the gods and the leader of the Titans. However, he also has time powers associated with Chronos, a entirely different deity.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Almost constantly.
  • Evil Laugh: He has a maniacal one that sometimes borders on Laughing Mad.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Cronus has his friendly moments, but it's unlikely to be anything more than this.
  • Large Ham
  • Motive Decay: His actions stay the same, but later episodes change his goal from ruling the world, to destroying it.
  • Offing the Offspring: What he tried to do in the ancient world, resulting in his confinement in Tartarus; given the chance, he'll do it again.
  • Parental Favoritism: When the kids go back in time to the Titan war, Odie and Herry have to recruit the cyclopses, Cronus's half-brothers, to make weapons for the gods. One of them notes that Cronus was their father's favorite until Cronus killed him.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He can be this on occasion, as exemplified on the main page.
  • Self-Duplication: One of his many powers.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Halfway. Before doing his best to off the offspring, he also killed his father Uranus; his mother Gaea, however, appears on the show.
  • Sinister Scythe: Kronos had one in Greek mythology, and Cronus has one in the show. Sometimes he turns it into a pair of them.
