In Greek Mythology, the Titans were a race of powerful deities that ruled during the legendary and ancient Golden Age. There were originally twelve Titans: six male Titans and six females, known as the Titanesses, with more coming afterwards. The Titans were associated with various primal concepts, some of which are simply extrapolated from their names: ocean and fruitful earth, sun and moon, memory and natural law.
Among the first generation of twelve Titans, the females were Mnemosyne, Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Rhea, and Themis and the males were Oceanus, Hyperion, Coeus, Cronus, Crius, and Iapetus. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion's children Helios, Selene, and Eos; Coeus' children Lelantos, Leto, and Asteria; Iapetus' sons Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius; Oceanus' daughter Metis; and Crius' sons Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses. These twelve Titans were ruled by the youngest, Cronus who overthrew their father, Ouranos, at the urging of their mother, Gaia.
The Titans preceded the Twelve Olympians, who, led by Zeus, the son of the Titan leader, Cronus, eventually rebel against them in the Titanomachy. The Titanomachy was said to have lasted for ten years. Their role as elder gods being overthrown by a race of younger gods, and imprisoned them within Tartarus, the deepest reaches of Hades, the Greek Underworld, with the few exceptions such as Oceanus, most being those who did not fight against Cronus.
"One of the three groups of children born from Gaia and Uranus in Greek lore. The Titans, unlike the other two groups, were born into human form. It is said they all wore bronze armor."

Titan is a demon working for the Divine Powers. He is leading the assault on the Fairy Forest in order to prevent Nanashi and the hunters from obtaining the Ame-no-habakiri, a sword that can be used in order to defeat Shesha. When asked, he acknowledges that he could have taken the sword without destroying the forest, but did so anyway because the forest was "in his way." During the battle, he will attempt to trick Nanashi into lowering his guard, with the outcome varying depending on Nanashi's response:
"Gah! Wait. Wait! I admit defeat. Lower your weapons. Please--if you let me go, I'll order my forces to withdraw."
Take his word and let him go

The armor worn by Titan in Kaneko's portrayal is the lorica segmentata. It is attested that the conventional use of such armor started from about 9 B.C., making it too modern for any mythic Titan to have.
