    Kronos is the main antagonist of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians franchise. While in terms of backstory and personality, he is the lord of the Titans, Cronos, he has the powers of the personification of time, Khronos. Kronos was the youngest child of the sky, Ouranos, but he used a scythe given to him by his mother, Mother Earth, to destroy him and control the universe. He ruled for a long. Pausanias is more specific that a cult of Kronos was practised on top of the Hill of Kronos, and this more specific claim finds corroboration in an earlier source, Dionysios of Halikarnassos
