I am sorry, but this is reason, and divine charity knows nothing of reason.

As for Typhon doing all this - bankrupting the Earth, killing thousands,
wounding the Sun - those called to be God's scourge have traditionally acted
in this fashion.

And so have some of God's principal servants (read the Old Testament).

Often, the servant weilds a scourge.

The end of Typhon's evil is a significant good, at least within the
gene-centered  / volk-centered  /  reproductive-success-centered Old
Testament scale of values  - a tremendous expansion of the human territory
and population - a new Promised Land.

It seems very much in the character of the Increate, to me, that Typhon
should be redeemed.
