Danava Titan

Danava titans once regulated the foundational forces that shaped reality. Rebuked by the gods for being harsh and inflexible overseers, these spurned titans joined their siblings in their failed war against their creators. Defeated, the danavas were cast into the paralyzing depths of the cosmos's seas. The few danava titans who have escaped now wield the cold, darkness, and crushing pressure of their prisons in pursuit of their ancient visions of reality. Danavas split mountains, wake primordial beasts, or level whole civilizations in accordance with grand designs they forged at the dawn of time. Others hunt and harvest the balance-enforcing aeons, who they see as usurpers of their divine responsibility.

Hadalic Presence (divine, illusion, mental, water) Creatures that fail their Will save against the titan's Impossible Stature aura also experience the crushing depths and darkness of the ocean floor. Such creatures see as if in an area of darkness (10th level), and the titan can use their wavesense to detect such creatures as a precise sense, even if neither are in water. On a critical failure, the creature is also immobilized.
Impossible Stature (aura, divine, illusion, mental) 100 feet. Titans warp perception and distance around them to seem even larger and more imposing. A creature that enters or begins its turn within the emanation must succeed at a DC 46 Will save or its movement toward the titan is movement over difficult terrain (greater difficult terrain on a critical failure) for 1 round.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Danava Pillars

Some danavas, known as danava pillars, are custodians of a fundamental concept like life or knowledge—a crux of the universe. Destroying a danava pillar forcibly shreds their bonds and risks unraveling a portion of reality, with potentially disastrous effects.

Source Bestiary 3 pg. 268
Created by ancient deities long before the rise of mortal ancestries, titans united and attempted to overthrow their deific progenitors. The resulting war still figures prominently throughout mortal myths, in which most titans were cast down and imprisoned for eons.

Sidebar - Related Creatures Other Titans

Titans vary widely, depending on what function the deities intended them to serve or their methods of waging war. They include inflexible davana titan, warmongering hekatonkheires, armored fomorian titans, shapeshifting sashenji titans, and cunning citevi titans.

Sidebar - Treasure and Rewards Titan Weapons

Some titans carry a fabled mattock of the titans. Good titans use it to build, while evil titans use it to destroy. Similar weapons include the felling axe of the titans, a greataxe that can be whirled to create a punishing winds effect.
