The Makhai kick Greek butt in new WRATH OF THE TITANS featurette
Fun fact: I wrote my Master's paper on the δαίμων ("daemon") as it related to the conception of the demon in the writings of the early Christian fathers. Despite spending more than several months researching the δαίμων, I never once came across the Μάχη ("Makhai"), a class of Greek daemons associated with battle. I find it rather weird that my first introduction to them comes from a WRATH OF THE TITANS featurette that puts them front and center. Check it out after the jump.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington)—the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)—is attempting to live quietly as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year-old son, Helius.But unbeknownst to Perseus, a struggle for supremacy has been raging between the gods that will come to threaten his idyllic life. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing hold of their immortality, as well as control over the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous Underworld.Now, Perseus cannot ignore his true calling as Hades, along with Zeus' godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switches loyalties and makes a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titan's strength grows as Zeus' remaining godly powers are siphoned... and hell is unleashed on earth.
