For your first teaser, it's actually very good. Better than my first.

But, Hephaestus was not associated with fire. He was associated with tools, automatons-- pretty much blacksmiths.

Blacksmiths are however commonly associated with fire, so it's nothing major. Just thought I'd let you know.

Why would you associate Zeus with the elements? Isn't Zeus the Creator of All other Gods, lower gods. Persidon is the God of the Oceans, but given that element by Zeus. I don't understand how Zeus is leveled with lessor gods. good teaser.

To precious, Zeus is also the god of the sky, and air is one of the four elements.

@precious1026
Zeus is not the creator of all the other gods. They were all born to Kronos, the titan lord of time, all except Athena and Dionysus who were born to Zeus. Zeus is the lord of the sky, and that of lightning.

Thank you! That was food, except Zeus had many more godly children than that.

Oops, I meant good.

I actually had chosen Poseidon before I read the hint because of the order in which you listed them. Zeus is parent to Hephaestus, so I assumed Gaea would be the parent of the next listed. Poseidon is the only god of that generation in the list. . .

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Gaia (or however you choose to spell her name) A titan, not a god? (Just as Atlas isn't a god)

@ShadowOfSin
To the best of my knowledge, that is half-correct. Gaia is not considered a "god", but I don't think she can be called a titan either. I have no idea where she falls, though, so I honestly don't care where anyone puts her.

geas a titan not a Greek god but good teaser

Croc, good teaser..made me think, and that's the fun! Thanks

@muffin
Good assumption, but Aphrodite is --I think-- another child of Gaea. When Ouranos was chopped up, he was thrown into the sea, which created sea foam, and then she rose from that.
Or at least, that's what I learned.

Do not remember much of Greek mythology any more so it was a bust for me!

O GOD, I got it.

I don't know about the associations with Earth, Fire, and Water, etc. but these four are the only ones having diphthongs (double vowels) in their names.
