This colossal fal'Cie is said to be the guardian of Gran Pulse's entire ecosystem. A biogenitor, Titan consumes weaker species and gives birth to new ones, thereby providing the stimulation needed to prevent ecological stagnation.
Unlike many other Gran Pulse fal'Cie, Titan does not involve himself directly with tasks of terrestrial manipulation. However, it is possible that he performs more subtle alterations of the landscape through the adjustment of biological cycles and the introduction of new, environmentally impacting species.
From his perch amongst the Faultwarrens, Titan determines the biological order of the wild, pitting beast against beast to weed out the weak and cultivate stronger species. He accomplishes this by plucking victims up and depositing them in a nearby Faultwarrens location. The E1 - E5 tiers of bosses are fought in this way.
Titan appears in the horizon of the Archylte Steppe, walking around, but cannot be directly approached outside of the Faultwarrens where he appears to pit the party against strong monsters.
