Gaia is one of the seven Primordial Deities who is the force of life within the Multiverse and from her essence sprang the first organisms and the process of evolution. Along with Uranus she created the titans, who, like their parents, began to create using the essences of the seven Primordials. However their creativity railed against the structured order of Uranus and Kronos, aided by Gaia, split and fractured Uranus, which created the Realms and alternate realities of the Multiverse.
The Primordial Deities do not strictly have appearances or personalities and are forces of the Multiverse, usually defined by their aspect. Gaia is the essence of life itself and is therefore forever insistent on the creativity and expansion of life in all its forms. This is why her essence was of help to Kronos when he fought against the order of Uranus[Leg 1].
The titans were created by the Primordial Deities Uranus and Gaia, Uranus representing reality and dimensions while Gaia was life. They then used the essences of their parents to continue the legacy of creation as they proceeded to create universes, galaxies and worlds across the Multiverse. They created other beings, including beings that would be considered deities. However the essence of Uranus, which was the structured and ordered nature of reality, railed against the unorganised and temperamental crafts of the titans. Urged on by the essence of Gaia, the bravest of the titans, Kronos, metaphorically slew Uranus and the nature of reality became fractured, creating dimensions, alternate realities and Realms with barriers separating them. Uranus, however, was not to be retired without a final say. He predicted that Kronos himself would, likewise, be overthrown by his own children. Kronos became paranoid. He and his sister, Rhea, had created many deities throughout the Multiverse and any of them could overthrow him. In his madness he ate his children - the deities he had created. He consumed them into himself where they remained trapped within an endless, cycling Narrative moment. The last of these gods, Rhea sought to hide from Kronos. Using Plotlines she was able to weave a Story for her son and hid him on a small, irrelevant world as an underdog hero - Earth. The deity would grow into the god known as Zeus[Leg 1].
