Than, the Last Titan of Urgrund
Last Titan of Urgrund, Mad Titan, Godslayer Than of Urgrund
Than is a genocidal warlord from Urgrund, the Second World which stood in place of the Universe and the Multiverse at the foundation of the prime material plane. After The Source breathed life into the universe, Titans became gods on GodWorld and migrated to the Second World, ushering in a golden age. It was in this golden age that Than was born. Reaching adulthood gently, Than had known only peace and harmony. Than married, had a daughter, and lived a life of pure euphoria in a utopia unknown to the Modern Era of man but all good things must end. Zenric, the Ancient God, forced life into the Second World by using his Source again all around Urgrund. The massive explosion became known as The Big Bang and Second World became more then just that of Urgrund. As life and power spread throughout the Universe and echoed into the Multiverse, war came to GodWorld and the subsequent destruction and rebirth brought about the GodWave and the New Gods, thus beginning the Third World. As the New Gods rose in power, the Old Gods died and the golden age of Urgrund came to an end. The turmoil that followed literally tore Than's world apart ending the life he knew, killing his family, and eventually all whom he'd called friends. With nothing, he swore that he would avenge those that he'd loved and slay the pretenders contesting the Universe. To complete his goal, Than set about creating the Godslayer Gauntlet with the purest mithril and gathering the Godfather Gems to empower it. He swore he would replace the Gods of the Outlands, pretenders who were dictating the free flow of the universe but he set his sights on any god he could manage. Founding the Dark Order, Than invaded multiple planets and slaughtered thousands to gain any artifact that could kill a god. He searched mercilessly for the Godfather Gems and killed anyone who'd dare oppose him. Than forged alliances, created the Blade of Eternity inside The Cosmic Coil and built an army of cloned demons for himself. His quest and his allies failures did eventually force him to sacrifice his alliance with the Freedom Society and in so doing he accidentally caused the creation of a god . Since then Than has chosen an easier target, or so he thought, the New Gods of Apokalips specifically Uxas. With Uxas, Darkseid, Than would do battle and fail, losing his Dark Order and forcing him to truly align himself with the Champions of Destiny. In a desperate attempt to save his new allies from a potential future enemy, Than struck a deal with Destiny of the Endless and manipulated his own past, there by manipulating history and a portion of the future.
