Hyperion was the fourth son of Uranus and Gaea, and helped Cronos overthrow their father. He was considered to be the god of heavenly lights because his children were Helios (sun), Eos (dawn), and Selene (moon). He used to drive the chariot of the sun across the sky each day until Helios took over. He married Theia, goddess of the blue sky.

Because of Uranus’ curse on Cronos, Cronos became fearful of both his children and his brothers and imprisoned them in Tartarus. Zeus set them free briefly before imprisoning them again. Eventually, it was believed that they were set free and asked to help in the creation of mankind. Hyperion’s contribution to mankind was to give them the ability to see.
