The Cyclops originated from Greek Mythology. According to the poet Hesiod
they are giants with a single eye in the middle of their foreheads, and are strong, stubborn, and "abrupt of emotion." They are originally defeated by the old Titans and placed in prison
, but are later released by the Gods. In return the Cyclopes forge the weapons of the Gods - Zeus' thunderbolts, Poseidon's trident, Artemis' bow, etc. After Cronus
is overthrown they become assistants to the smith god Hephaestus.
