Taurus is a New Olympian who works as the chief of security on the island.


When Taurus was young, his father was murdered by a sadistic shapeshifter named Proteus. For his crimes, Proteus was sentenced to prison, Taurus among the security force charged with his keeping. Taurus was often tortured by Proteus, who would shapeshift into his father to mock him.

When the Avalon travelers came to New Olympus, Taurus spoke out against Elisa Maza, believing humans could not be trusted because of what they did to his ancestor, the Minotaur. After Boreas ruled that Elisa could never leave New Olympus, several New Olympian citizens tried to lynch her. Despite his hatred for humans Taurus broke up the mob but then arrested Elisa because regardless of who started the near riot, she was the cause. When Taurus took Elisa to a holding cell, they walked past Proteus pretending to be Taurus's father. Elisa attempted to bond with Taurus by telling him that she too owed her career in law enforcement to following in her father's footsteps, but Taurus adamantly refused to listen. When a mob formed to attack Elisa outside her cell, Taurus's hatred for humanity was once again overpowered by his sense of duty and professionalism, Taurus ordered the crowd to disperse and even threatened to fire Helios. After Proteus and Elisa escaped, Elisa's decision to stay and thwart Proteus's plan to destroy New Olympus instead of escaping the island herself, convinced Taurus that not all humans are evil.
