Helios: was the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. Helios was imagined as a handsome god crowned with the shining aureole of the Sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the world-ocean returned to the East at night. Homer described Helios's chariot as drawn by solar steeds; later Pindar described it as drawn by "fire-darting steeds." Still later, the horses were given fiery names: Pyrois, Aeos, Aethon, and Phlegon. As time passed, Helios was increasingly identified with the god of light, Apollo. However, in spite of their syncretism, they were also often viewed as two distinct gods (Helios was a Titan, whereas Apollo was an Olympian). The equivalent of Helios in Roman mythology was Sol, specifically Sol Invictus.

This is my entry for the Mythological Creature Skin Contest.

I spent hours on this skin to make it just right! Please give DIAMONDS and give your opinions!

No the Titans were Titans. They were beaten by Cronus' kids the Gods. The Gods sent them to Tartarus. Helios was the TITAN of the sun.

Actually, Helios was the OLD Greek god(titan, whatever, you know what I mean) of the sun, but the Greeks thought that the sacrifices of animals and humans were to much for them to bear, so they decided to introduce a NEW god of the sun instead of Helios, this god was Apollo. Oh, and the Roman form of Apollo is still Apollo.

P.S. The link below is to a picture of "The More You Know" logo, I figured a link to a picture is better than having no picture at all.

Almost all of what you said is true, except the part about the god Apollo, who isn't the god of light but the sun itself, he did the same exact thing as Helios, but I can see why some of this is wrong. I checked to see if you got your info from Wikipedia, and it sure looks like it, all though I like how you didn't plagiarize anything, so good for you. Also, Wikipedia is not always right about all its facts. But please don't think I'm a... I don't know a good synonym for that... Maybe donkey? Yeah, donkey works. But please don't think I'm a donkey for saying this, I would have gone straight to Wikipedia too.

Hmm, I cant upload. I give you a Description what is different: No Crown at all,atleasts, Its got something on his head but I see it as hair.. the Breast thingy is not at the right but at the left, and more brown. And, most important, Everything is slightly more red. Only same is the head itself. With the White Eyes. I dont have any offence, Its a Great Skin and a good HD, which 'my' version doesnt have. Could it be an Older version or somethin?

BUT if you are talking about Roman mythology, then yes, Helios(or the sun) was indeed a "God" to them. So yes, Helios is a "God" to the Ancient Romans.

Helios was not a God. But it all depends in what you think a "God" is. If you are calling Helios a "God" as in an Olympian, then you are wrong. He was nor an Olympian or a "God". He was just the personification of the Sun. He lit and warmed the world for both man and Olympians. I simply called him a Titan because Homer would call him that in his work, so I thought it was much more fitting name. The equivalent would be Apollo who was indeed an Olympian or a so called "God". And how does a dead titan make a difference in this skin? Pokemon don't exist so I shouldn't make a skin of them either? If according to myth all titans were killed, then it doesnt give me a lesser right to make a dead titan than a living character.
