Phaeton is captain of Athena’s Sanctuary guard, who fight Shaina during the 12 House Battle.
Assistant and lieutenant to Gigas. Appointed to oversee the assassination of the Bronze Saints.
Of the characters in Greek mythology called Phaethon, the best known was the son of the Oceanid Clymene and the solar deity Helios.
Alternative, less common genealogies make him a son of Clymenus by Merope, of Helios and Rhode (thus a full brother of the Heliadae)
or of Helios and Prote.
In the prevailing account, Phaethon, challenged by his playmates, sought assurance from his mother that his father was the sun god. She gave him the requested assurance and told him to turn to his father for confirmation. He asked his father for some proof that would demonstrate his relationship with the sun. When the god promised to grant him whatever he wanted, he insisted on being allowed to drive the sun chariot for a day. Placed in charge of the chariot, he was unable to control the horses. The earth was in danger of being burnt up and, to prevent this disaster, Zeus is forced to strike down the chariot with a thunderbolt and kill Phaethon in the process.
