Personality: Thaumas enjoys nothing more than arousing awe, astonishment, surprise and marvel in the people he encounters. In the past, he used to accomplish this through the small and large secrets that could be found the sea. These days, he is putting his talent for creating and finding fleeting moments of wonder in everything - inanimate objects, animals, plants, people - to good use by capturing them on film. His photographs show the world as he sees it and it is a rather unique view.
Once he has unveiled the secret of whatever is in front of his lens, however, he loses interest in it, utterly and completely. It has earned him the reputation of being eccentric, arrogant, fickle and a little bit flaky but he doesn't care. All he wants is to do what he enjoys most and what he does best. So what if he sometimes spends hours just staring at an empty coke can or a leaf or parts of his models' anatomy that don't usually get any attention? What people think of him is uninteresting and unimportant. Besides, none of his clients can deny the fact that Cyril Thanos' work is worth its money.
There is one goal he has been pursuing for years and that is to capture and freeze the beauty of his daughters forever. So far he has failed but that doesn't stop him from trying. Wonders never cease to exist, and Thaumas, a dreamer at heart, believes that nothing is impossible.
History: Thaumas was known as a sea god, more specifically the personification of sea wonders. Born to Pontos and Gaia, he married Elektra who bore him Iris, Arke and the Harpies. Never one to interfere with their lives, he merely watched as his rainbow rose to become the messenger of the King of Gods, watched as his faded rainbow fell when she sided with the Titans and watched as his storm-winds settled for being hounds of Zeus. Those were their choices and he respected them, because no matter what they did, they would always be his girls.
Time went by and worship faded. Thaumas slept at the bottom of the sea for centuries after the fall of Olympus and their myths, dreaming of clouds and rainbows and storms. The wonders of the sea, however, did not rest with him. From time to time, the oceans would reveal one or two of their treasures, striking marvel and sometimes fear in the hearts of men while they also aroused curiosity about what else might be hidden in the depths of the sea.
Sailors and their fanciful stories eventually roused him from his slumber. Even though nobody believed them, there was one being who knew they were not lying, for he had seen and was ruler of all the mysterious marvels the brave men encountered on their voyages. They were the ones who carried him across the ocean and brought him to a new world.
America. The land of the brave and free where nothing was impossible.
