Ephialtes is one of the ice giants imprisoned in the circle of Treachery. He, like the other giants, attempt to use their frozen breath to stop Dante from reaching Lucifer.


He and his brother, Otus, are the sons of Poseidon. They were strong and aggressive giants, growing by nine fingers every month, nine fathoms tall at age nine, and only outshone in beauty by their step-brother Orion. The brothers wanted to storm Mt. Olympus and gain Artemis for Otus and Hera for Ephialtes. Ares tried to stop them but they imprisoned him in a large bronze jar. In the end, Ephialtes and Otus were slain by the arrows of Artemis and Apollo.
