Perses was a Titan god in Greek mythology, son of the Titans Crius and Eurybia. He represented destruction and peace. He was married to the Titan goddess Asteria, with whom he had one daughter, Hecate; she was the goddess of wilderness, witchcraft and magic.
Another mythological figure with the same name was the brother of Aeetes, and son of Helios and Perse. He overthrew his brother, claiming the throne of Colchis for himself, but was later killed by his niece, Medea.
