Nyx (Latin Nox) is the goddess of night. She is one of the protogenoi (first-born elemental gods), and was born from Khaos (Air). Alone, she spawned some very dark beings including the Moirai (the three Fates), Nemesis (justice and divine retribution), winged Hypnos (Sleep) and His brother Thanatos (Death), Moros (Doom), the Keres, Goddesses of violent death, Oizys (Misery), the Hesperides who guarded the golden apples, Deceit, Friendship, Old Age and Eris (Strife, sometimes said to be a daughter of Hera). Even though many believe Khaos to be her mother, the true creation of Nyx is unknown.
