In Ancient Greek Mythology, Nyx was the goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods who emerged as the dawn of creation. Nyx was an ancient deity usually envisaged as the very substance of the night - a veil of dark mists drawn across the sky to obscure the light of her son Aether, the shining blue air of the heavens. Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty that she is feared by Zeus himself. Nyx is said to have mothered other such deities as Moros (doom), Thanatos (death), Hypnos (sleep), the Oneiroi (dreams), and Eris (strife). This mala tempers these dark sides of our own personality, and brings us back to the light.
