Regulator with Chronos is a primordial god personifying "Time and Destiny". It appears essentially in Orphic traditions, and is often wrongly associated with the god Cronos, king of the Titans and father of Zeus. In his "modern" depiction, he's described as an old man with a pair of black wings as well as a scythe and an hourglass or the earth recalling its function.
