Nyx, goddess of night - A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death). 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. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.
The god of sleep, Hypnos’ mother was Nyx, the deity of night, and his father Erebus, the deity of darkness. Hypnos lived next to his twin brother Thanatos (Death) in the Underworld. His wife Pasithea (deity of hallucination or relaxation) was one of the youngest of the Graces, promised to him by Hera. Hypnos’ three sons are known as the Oneiroi- “Dreams”.
