Raiden and Jewel are Thunder’s best friends. The three grew up alongside each other and are sometimes referred to as the Hybrid Trio, as all three are hybrids of two species. Raiden is Thunder’s best guy friend. They are almost the same, both have lightning powers, and chaos powers, and both are the older twin. They both also hate it when people nickname them "Thunder and Blitzen". Despite their father's being rivals/friends/enemies, the two are them are the best of friends. Thunder was actually the one who helped Raiden master his lightning powers.
