Was Perses a Titan?
Perses was not one of the original twelve Titans born to Gaia and Uranus, but he was a child of one of those Titans (Crius) and was thus sometimes called a Titan as well.
Who were Perses’ children?
According to the common tradition, Perses and his wife Asteria had a daughter named Hecate. In other traditions, however, Hecate was the daughter of Zeus rather than Perses.
The name “Perses” (Greek Πέρσης, translit. Pérsēs) may be related to the Greek word πέρθω (pérthō), meaning “destroy” (itself a word of uncertain etymology).

The ancients had little to say about Perses or his attributes. However, the poet Hesiod did describe him as “eminent among all men in wisdom.”
Perses is a shadowy figure; his role in Greek mythology appears to have been limited to his genealogical function as the husband of Asteria and the (possible) father of Hecate.
