NYX

Also known as NIGHT
Greek Goddess of : Darkness, Nightime
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Nox

Primordial Goddess of night time born from Chaos.

With her consort Erebos, who just happened to be her brother, she created Aether (atmosphere), Hemera (day) and the Fates.

They also created Nemesis (retribution), Moros (doom), Hypnos (sleep), Ponos (toil), Apate (deceipt) and Eris (strife). I can't help but think there was a bit of tension in the relationship.

Then came Oizys (pain), Momus (blame & mockery), Thanatos (death), Geras (Old age) and Lyassa (Mad Rage) by various un-proven fathers. Take your pick from Cronus, Erebus, or any other God for that matter. No-one is accepting responsibility.

Her mood seemed to lighten up a bit with the conception of Philotes (love & friendship), Charon, the Hesperides and Oneiroi, but with the Goddess of Darkness you never can tell.

Nyx was adopted by the Romans who spared no expense hiring the worlds finest minds to rename her, and, after leaving no stone unturned, they eventually came up with 'NOX'. Genius.
