Ever since his defeat at the hands of Zeus which took place several Millenia ago his hatred of Zeus and Olympians in general festered and grew while he was imprisoned in the harshest section of Hades, Tartarus.
Typhon is the father of the Chimera, Orthrus, the Sphinx, the Nemean Lion, Cerberus, Ladon and the Lernaean Hydra.
