Appearance
Above many others Iakovos towers, tall and mighty at a massive 25 hands, a fearsome attribute in itself. Carved from the shadowy rocks of Tartarus, the beast bares resemblance to the mortal Warlander breed, dark in colour and muscular in stature. His legs are thick and strong, not overly long but not stocky either. His ankles however bear no feathering despite his size and breed.

There are many striking features about this steed, most notably his numerous wings, however we will begin with his coat. A steely grey in colour his fur darkens to near black at the legs, head and rump, likened to a roan pattern. When made mortal it was difficult for his equine form to withstand his Titan powers and so his skin appears to be cracked as though the magic is attempting to seep out of him or break him apart. Not only does Iakovos’ fur have subtle crack markings but his form is also littered with scars from his war with the Gods as well as his time in the fighting pits. The most obvious is a deep laceration over his right eye, one that has cost him his perfect site and leaves him seeing a discoloured version of everything from that eye. Whilst the other eye is a brilliant, fiery orange the left one is icy white giving him an odd but piercing gaze. On the left side of his neck is carved the symbols 'θάνατος' meaning death or death bringer as he was to bring to Olympia. These scars are far darker than his other ones and seem more like indentations than raised scars. From his rump erupts not just one but three lucious unicorn tails, the spinal cord extending to the tip of each tail with dark hair cascading from it. Kovos’ mane is a similarly dark colour however the thick locks are cropped, not too close to the neck, but nevertheless short. His fringe on the other hand is long and voluminous, slightly curly, and hangs down to the base of his cheek. Iakovos’ hooves look as though they were formed from obsidian, strong and sturdy- suitable to carry his muscular form, although the left hind hoof has a small crack about an inch long from the tip. From either side of his skull grow two large cow horns, jet black in colour and menacingly sharp. The edges are ragged, marked and chipped in places from his many battles. Although this makes for an intimidating and eye catching appearance but it is to his wings that most eyes are drawn. From his broad and strong shoulders sprout 3 pairs of wings, 6 in total. All three sets are usable and vary slightly in size; the top pair being the largest and the bottom being smaller. You might wonder how he possibly closes his wings and it is in fact easy; since the lower two pairs ares smaller than the upper pair the larger wings enclose around the smaller ones wrapping them all to his sides.

When Iakovos uses his magic (once he's achieved it) the cracks within his skin will glow orange making his pelt look like a lava field.

His current items are a steel face plait (shaped like THIS) and steel horn caps like THESE however he also will have an outfit to be added at a later date.

Created to be cruel, destructive, unyielding and dangerous like the very lava he was built from, Iakovos certainly satisfied his creators with sheer blood lust and desire for battle. They instilled in him all the bitterness and anger that had simmered and bubbled for eons in the dark, fiery depths of Tartarus. Kovos is the summation of that evil disgust and hate, often losing himself to fury despite otherwise being cold and calculating.

Being created and bred simply for supplanting the Olympians, Iakovos’ grasp of right and wrong is very limited, often leading him to dance a fine line between being immoral and amoral. Death to him is inevitable, killing simply a normal thing to do. He does not question himself nor does he doubt what he has done. One thing he does question is his purpose, after experiencing being used and betrayed by both the Titans and the Olympians as well as being a fighting slave he does not allow himself to submit to others and is angered by slavery. However Kovos does not know what to do with himself or his life, making him incredibly volatile and unpredictable. Let’s just say, the most dangerous beings are the ones with nothing to lose.

He never acted like a God, was never treated as a God, he was merely a weapon in the form of an immortal creature. But in those 5 years spent among equine kind he immersed himself in their ways and now he could not be recognised as the Titan meant to supplant the Olympians. He remains of course bitter, his hatred for Titans and Olympians alike burning like the fire within him but he cares not for their war, for their life nor for any of them. Unlike many of the other Gods, Iakovos does not put himself on a pedestal above equine kind, he in fact does not distinguish himself from them at all. Whilst slow to embrace his mortality he has grown used to having no powers and no immortality to the point that he is still a force to be reckoned with even with magic.

History
The war between the Old Gods; the Titans, and the New Gods; the Olympians, was never-ceasing. Even when one side thought they had gained the upper hand, thought they had secured their Kingdom, the other would tear it down. Until, after eons of Godly bloodshed, the Olympians believed they had vanquished the Titans forever.

Defeated, wounded and bitter the Titans were cast into the deepest depths of Tartarus where for centuries they smouldered in their acrimonious rage, plotting and planning a final revenge. Iakovos was this final revenge, the last Titan and a true monster of destruction. Born fully formed, over decades the Titan’s taught him all he needed to know; moulded his biased view of the world and manipulated him. They thought he could be controlled, that the world view they had given him would allow them to use him. Alas they were wrong. Powered by the fiery ammunition of Tartarus and fuelled by the cruelty, hatred and fury instilled within him by the remaining Titans Iakovos was a force to be reckoned with. Strong enough to overpower even Zeus himself, Kovos was bred to be Olympus’ undoing however the Titans did not realise he would also be theirs.

Unleashed upon Olympus exactly 50 years after his creation, the plan seemed to go perfectly. God after God fell to Iakovos’ wrath until at last he reached the House of Olympus where Zeus and all the higher Gods resided. Working together they were able to stave off his attack long enough to beat back the other Titans until it was just him battling the New Gods. Zeus formed a plan but rather than enacting his own will as he was famous for, the King of the Gods consulted the oldest Goddess in creation- Nyx. For her part the evil-turned good Goddess of the Night had kept away from the more recent Titan plans, preferring to keep more to herself in her home in Tartarus rather than take part in the God’s wars. Nevertheless the femme knew exactly what was going on. Zeus wanted to bargain with Iakovos, give him something the Titans never gave him. Like Athena, Nyx advised the God that if things went wrong it would be catastrophic for the Olympians, however she refused to give any other opinion than that. She had her own battles to deal with and planned to leave for Earth, she would not get involved in this.

Seeing no alternative but to offer the God destroyer an alliance, Zeus ignored the better judgment of his fellows and sought a meeting with Iakovos. Fully intending to kill the King whilst he was alone, Kovos attended the little meet. However when Zeus explained to the last Titan that he was a mere tool to the others and Zeus could give him freedom if he aided Olympians in defeating the Titans once and for all. Although naïve and misguided, Iakovos was not stupid and knew neither side cared at all for him. If the Titans won the war Kovos still presented a threat to them, a threat that they didn’t want for whilst he was the Olympians’ undoing he was also theirs. The Olympians simply wanted the same thing but in reverse, to use him to destroy the Titans. At least by siding with the Olympians he leave when he wanted to. However this was not to be.

It took 12 days and 11 nights to finally eradicate the Titans, to seal them in Tartarus forever and by the end Iakovos was greatly injured. Weak and too trusting he was fooled by the Olympians for they were not so much different from their forbearers. Seeing his chance Zeus tried to kill the beast, seeing Kovos as a threat even when promised the freedom his creators did not give him. With great effort he escaped and fled to Earth, one breath away from dying. Weeks were spent hidden in a large cave, recuperating his strength until at least he emerged, scarred physically and emotionally. In a last ditch effort to stop the Supplanter, Zeus has locked his immortality and power within him so the brute could feel his power but could not access it. Iakovos was, in all essence, mortal.

During the God wars Iakovos had paid no mind to equine-kind, the mortals Zeus had fashioned after himself. Why would he? His war, the Titan’s war was not with them. Of course the brute had inherited the disdain most Titan’s held for their mortal counterparts but unlike the Gods who sought to rule them, Iakovos saw them as slaves just like he had been. Coming to terms with his mortality was infuriating and took several years, five in fact. During this time he wandered the world the Gods had created, bitter and hateful. With no purpose and little to do the steed found himself traversing among the scum of the earth, hired muscle and what not. There was one time the former God found himself ensnared by bounty hunters who sold him to a general looking for gladiators. It was during this time that Kovos regained his fighting prowess, staying among the fighter slaves for 2 years simply to hone his skills on those weaker than him before making his daring escape. His escape was easy, there were few strong enough to take him on, mortal as he was. His planning had been orchestrated perfectly and in the dead of night when his dark coat blended into the shadows perfectly he was able to evade most simply by hiding. The rest he left in a bloody trail behind him. They would know he escaped but they would not shed tears for a lost weapon.

Iakovos continues on, wandering and travelling with no purpose other than to wreak havoc as he was created for and there is little else he knows.
