You cannot kill me! I am the pit itself. You might as well try to kill the Earth. Gaea and I - we are eternal. We own you, flesh and spirit!
~ Tartarus to Iapetus


Tartarus is the primordial manifestation of the abyss from the Underworld and the "prison guard" of the Underworld pit that bears his name. He also sired Typhon and the Giants with Gaea. As one of the Protogenoi, he is an aspect of existence itself, and thus cannot ever be truly killed.
