In Greek mythology, Briareus was one of the Hekatonkheires, a three-member species of giants with one hundred arms and fifty heads. Like the Titans that they predated, the Hekatonkheires were children of the sky god Uranus and the earth goddes Gaia. Because of their hideous nature, Uranus threw them into the depths of Tartarus, where they remained until Zeus released them to aid him in overthrowing the Titans.
After successfully dispatching the Titans, the Hekatonkheires were given the task of guarding the entrance of Tartarus.
