NYX was the goddess of the night, one of the primordial gods (protogenoi) who emerged as the dawn of creation.
She was a child of Khaos (Chaos, Air), and coupling with Erebos (Darkness) she produced Aither (Aether, Light) and Hemera (Day). Alone she spawned a brood of dark spirits including the three Fates, Sleep, Death, Strife and Pain.
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 Aither, the shining blue of the heavens. Her opposite number was Hemera (Day) who scattered the mists of night at dawn.
In ancient art Nyx was depicted as a either a winged goddess or charioteer, sometimes crowned with an aureole of dark mists.
But there were more things that Nyx has done, she had witnessed the dawn of man and their down fall. She witnessed Pandora open the box, the birth of Christanity and saw Eve eat the apple and did nothing. Unlike the gods who feared the birth of Christanity Nyx did not show fear nor a care knowing that she was eternal for the night is will and Tartarus is her home. No one would dare challenge the Goddess for they knew that she was not one to be trifled with. Even Zeus would not dare cross her when he went after her son.
She never comes to the land of the living unless it was great importance; which is occassionaly her children. She always tries to convince her children to return home and not disturb the balance but they always see the need to become part of the world. So now she became a permanent resident in LA to make sure they don't be mischivious.
