Nyx Goddess of the night. Nyx was born together with Erebus, Gaea, Tartarus, and Eros ("Love"), out of Chaos. Nyx was sometimes seen as a winged goddess. Her wings were black or shadowy, and she was called "swift Night". She is said to dwell in the Underworld during the day, and only come out at dusk. Nyx had ruled with her father, until he made her the supreme ruler of heaven and earth. Later, she gave the supreme rulership to her son Ouranus.
