History: (Monsters Unleashed#9/2) - Titan broke into the castle of a queen and stole the blood-jewel from her bedtable. However, he was careless and knocked over a trinket with his sword, awakening the queen. The queen summoned her guards as Titan fled from the chamber, and quickly scaled down the castle walls using the same rope he had used for entry. As the guards began to fire arrows at him, Titan ran for what seemed to be a horse, but leaping on to the creature's back, he found that it was the centaur Equinus. Before Equinus could shake Titan off, the incoming arrows from the castle convinced him to take Titan with him in flight. Once they were safely away, Titan began to explain what he had stolen.

As Titan and Equinus sat around a fire examining the blood-jewel, suddenly a three-headed demon summoned by the sorcerer Grithstane emerged from the jewel and attacked them. Titan did his best to fight the creature, but it was ultimately Equinus who proved more skilled, and slew the demon. Deciding that the blood-jewel wasn't worth keeping, Titan decided to return it to the castle. Just as he used his sling to hurl it back inside, Grithstane had completed another summoning spell, and he was assaulted by his own demon. As Titan and Equinus departed, Equinus angrily noted that his life had been put into jeopardy by Titan and he received no recompense for his work.
