"Perhaps that is for the best." She clasped her hands behind her back and studied Gaia. "It is of little import... suffice to say that the strength of your powers, and your... imminent nature has led you down dark paths in the past." A smile flickered, lightning-fast, across her face. "But you will rise above that. I love you, Gaia; and I have missed you."

Do the gods remember their past incarnations? Some claim to. 1920s Set constantly namedrops long-dead people she claims to have met, including multiple Roman Emperors and I believe one of the 12 Apostles. Few of the others do that explicitly, but they all treat their future incarnations as their own future - as in 'I'll see you in ninety years'.

To both this and the powers question - and most others, actually - the best approach is to ask what your character would expect to happen. Does Gaia believe that as a new incarnation he should remember everything and be in perfect control? Then he probably is. Does he believe himself a blank slate who has been 'imprinted' with Gaia but needs to learn how to truly be him? Then that's probably what'll happen.
