Crius was considered one of the four pillars that hold the heavens and the earth apart. He represented the pillar of the south, while the other three pillars were personified by his brothers Iapetus, Coeus and Hyperion. The four brothers had an important role during the dethroning of their father, Uranus; as they were in the four corners of the earth, they held Uranus in place, while their brother Cronus castrated him with a sickle that their mother had given them.
In the Titanomachy, the war between the Titans and the Olympians, Crius participated siding with the Titans, but did not have a specific role. When the Titans were defeated, Crius along with the rest of his siblings was thrown into Tartarus, the lower level of the Underworld.
Crius Is also called Kreios, Krios.
In Greek mythology, Crius /ˈkraɪəs/, Kreios or Krios (Ancient Greek: Κρεῖος, Κριός) was one of the Titans in the list given in Hesiod‘s Theogony, a son of Uranus and Gaia. The least individualized among the Titans  he was overthrown in the Titanomachy. M. L. West has suggested how Hesiod filled out the complement of Titans from the core group—adding three figures from the archaic tradition of Delphi, Coeus, and Phoibe, whose name Apollo assumed with the oracle, and Themis. Among possible further interpolations among the Titans was Crius, whose interest for Hesiod was as the father of Perses and grandfather of Hecate, for whom Hesiod was, according to West, an “enthusiastic evangelist”.
Consorting with Eurybia, daughter of Earth (Gaia) and Sea (Pontus), he fathered Astraios and Pallas as well as Perses. The joining of Astraios with Eos, the Dawn, brought forth Eosphoros, the other Stars and the Winds.
Joined to fill out lists of Titans to form a total that made a match with the Twelve Olympians, Crius was inexorably involved in the ten-year-long war between the Olympian gods and Titans, the Titanomachy, though without any specific part to play. When the war was lost, Crius was banished along with the others to the lower level of Hades called Tartarus.
Although “krios” was also the ancient Greek word for “ram”, the Titan’s chthonic position in the Underworld means no classical association with Aries, the “Ram” of the zodiac, is ordinarily made. Aries is the first visible constellation in the sky at the spring season, marking the start of the new year in the ancient Greek calendar. This fact may have implied that Crius was the Titan god of constellations, measuring the duration of the year while his brother Hyperion measures the days and months.
