Theia is one of the Titans of Myth, an extra-dimensional race of beings once worshipped as gods by the people of Ancient Greece, and whose descendants are the Olympians. She was able to escaped Tartarus alone and came to Earth. She had numerous husbands and lovers - all of whom she slew - and numerous children. She raised her children to be ambitious opportunists under the auspices of a cult called the Children of the Sun and convinced them that they would someday inherit the Earth. One such child was Lilith
Lilith was spirited away by her well-meaning nurse to protect her from her mother and was raised beyond the insanity of the cult. She grew up with psychic powers and eventually joined the Teen Titans. Theia eventually sought her out to prevent her from turning against her as Zeus had turned against Cronus millennia earlier and eventually kidnapped her back just before launching an assault on Olympus, now moved to a pocket dimension by Zeus.
Thia then kidnapped the Amazons of Themyscira, and ordered her mortal slave Kole to imprison them. Next, Thia attacked Olympus and succeeded in wrestling the throne from Zeus.
Sensing a possible threat from the titans, Thia released her mortal siblings, the Giants, from Tartarus to destroy them. Thia was successful in her siege of Olympus, but the Titans, however, defeated the Giants with the help of the Teen Titans. Together, they helped to free the Amazons and rallied for the Olympians against Thia and her progeny. Hyperion himself confronted Thia, appealing to her out of the love they once had, conjuring a funeral pyre to destroy them both in order to defeat her.
