As his voice rumbled, the skies bled into darkness, and rain poured forth with furious strength. It wasn’t the first time – nor would it be the last – that the mortals paid a price for his rage. As ships faltered in the tempestuous sea, people on land rushed for shelter. Only the Titans had faced harsher punishment in the face of Zeus’ wrath. Thankfully, it wasn’t long before a word or deed pleased the mighty Olympion, and Helios was granted favor to drive his chariot across the sky, bringing light and warmth to the Hellenes once again.
