History

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.

  • [I apologise for my hiatus.. Shall we plot?]

  • ♆ Stares and Scoffs as I gently arrange my dinner utensils to show the wait staff that I've finished my meal.

    • Another one.... So tell me, what do you want?

  • {I am all right, was very busy for awhile.. I apologize for my sudden hiatus}

  • Nyx was Nyx, nothing anyone could do about that, or think to change it. Once she was shown in he would leave her to her visit. It had nothing to do with him, nor was the business of the fates. Turning on his heels he departs, leaving the way they came. He doesn't catch anything they say. Nor does he feel inclined to eavesdrop. He had pressing matters to see to, so, he off he goes. Disappearing down the long winding pathway.

    Appearing out of nowhere in a mist of black ash. Hades is soon joined by his three trusted Erinyes. They whisper things to him, speaking in low voices. Leaning, and making rather odd gestures in their every movement. Curious beings they are, and careful they tread. Doing so for their own reasons.

    He lent an ear, feet no longer moving. Turning his head off to the left, but not entirely. Never does his gaze fall on either of the three, but his attention is upon them. Intent on what they have to say. And an interesting conversation that he nods his head. Not a word spoken. At the same time the three leave him, and he proceeds on walking in the direction he'd meant to. He needs to get to his golden palace, there was something there he has to see to. So, his paced walk there picks up a bit.

  • The fates were on about something, they had met with him not long ago. But went about their business that day. With no doubt, he knew that Nyx was leading them there. Given that Hades himself didn't know of their whereabouts. Unless he was attempting to check. Which he isn't. He is facing forward, walking when he though that they would make this trip without speaking to each other. Unfortunately, she breaks the silence. Asking about Persephone no less. To this, Hades feels his jaw click, tightening as he turns slightly over his right shoulder to her. "She's well." he said to her, giving a short nod then turning forward again.

    With that aside there's something else she brings up. Was it really, bigger than what Tartarus is now. He wasn't sure, since he's not been there for some time. Possibly a handful of visits, but always done on reconnaissance. He doesn't share the details on the matter of thought he was having. A simple, "Hmm." is all that leaves him. He was curious though, it's been too long. Before he knows it, they are only around the corner of somewhere beyond the hall. Just beyond an opening that offered moisture, rare to this corner of the Underworld. It's what the fates desired, and got. Stopping, Hades mentioned into the large entryway. Allowing Nyx to venture first. While Hades stood aside, arms at his side now.

  • There is no affair that the likes of her children would care to cross. He was unlike the other Gods, those on Olympus. Hades stayed to his own, and if her children we're about doing as they like, coming here no less. Then they were looking for death. Not their brother Thanatos, no, but a swift death. This would cost Hades, yes. But well worth it nonetheless.

    She goes on about her stories, her warnings. He says nothing in return to those direct words, but does tilt his head, following her as she began to make circles around him. Turning the other way so to see her emerge from that direction. She wants to see her daughters. A request and yet, she prowls, clearly impatient. Not wanting to wait on his answer. Then why ask, he wondered. To this, he shrugs his shoulders and finally brings himself to respond.

    Mind you, he only speaks of the daughters and never references towards the warning she had earlier given him. He would deal with that eventually. For now, his answer to her, wanting it or not. "You may." Not waiting on her to say something or do something, Hades lead the way. To see what was in the Underworld needed permission, regardless. For anyone that ventured without a care, would find themselves wandering for an eternity. Even the fair Goddess of the Night would fall victim to this. Which is why she found herself here, and not just to warn Hades. And so, he leads the way, where she would find her daughters.

  • Now there's a voice he hasn't heard in so long, he said to himself as he turns slowly from the right side. Facing in the direction she emerges from her darkness. Piercing golden duos upon her person. Hades turns his head mere inches to the left as his gaze locks upon the extending arm, which's hand was held out to him. What was she expecting of him with her doing that. Surely.. he stopped before he even finished that thought. Composing himself, he looks to her straight in the eye, shoulders back.

    A calm swallow before uttering a word to Nyx. Speaking with a calm and a casual shrug of his shoulders. "All fare well Nyx. But you.. what brings the Goddess of the Night here? Surely not for a favor." he said as he looked onward with a curiosity stirring at the back of his eyes. Lips in a fine line. He holds an expression that reads in many ways; suspicion, distrust and caution. Her son, Thanatos despised mortals as well as the Gods. This including Hades himself. What brings her here raises plenty of questions, none of which Hades brought up. This Goddess here was feared by his brother Zeus himself.

    Anyone could understand the tension that rose on the Lord of the Underworld. However, Hades never medled with things or the sons of Nyx. Not much could be said about Zeus. Homer who would toy with Zeus for whatever reason, would always run back to his mother, Nyx. For fear of Zeus' fury, knowing that the maternal fury of his mother would trump that of the God of Olympus. A rather amusing image comes to mind and Hades forces the snicker back. Not wanting to offend the Goddess with it, making her think he might be mocking her. Standing there, arms at his sides, he waits on her responds and hopefully, a possible reason for her being here. He simply had to know.
