Nyx, sometimes referred to as "Mother Night", is the personification of night and a resident in the House of Hades. She is the adopted mother of Zagreus, and the mother of twin gods Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death), the Furies Megaera, Tisiphone and Alecto, as well as many others.

After Persephone left the Underworld, Nyx became Zagreus' main caretaker. She curried favor with the Olympian Gods and gave Zagreus the Mirror of Night to aid in his escape.

She seems to hold a management role in the House, as she can be seen giving counsel and direction to Megaera, as well as giving orders to and reviewing the day's work with Dusa.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...Mother Night, we like to call her, though rare is the occasion when she dotes on us. She has her many, many children to look after, many of whom reside now in locales beyond my reckoning, and perhaps beyond hers. Yet, nonetheless, she toils about the Master's House, and conducts such affairs that fail to reach his notice or gain his attention. She and the Master do enjoy a sort of harmony, for even as he tends personally to the dead, she watches over the domain itself. They tolerate each other, in respect of one another's power.'


Relationships[edit | edit source]

Hades: Hades and Nyx manage the domain together. They mostly tolerate and begrudgingly respect each other, though it seems that Hades holds some power over Nyx, as he controls the punishment of Titans and primordial gods. Nyx appears to have some kind of arrangement with him, to have avoided a similar fate for herself.

Zagreus: Nyx cares for Zagreus as if he's her own child. She fully supports his decision to leave, and helps him by giving him the Mirror of Night and contacting the Olympians on his behalf.

Megaera: Nyx is sympathetic to her daughter. She consoles Megaera and reminds her of their duty to the House.

Chaos: Nyx is somewhat regretful about being so estranged from her own parent, as they have not talked to each other since the beginning of creation.

Olympian gods: The Olympians look down on Chthonic gods as a whole. Ares mentions that Nyx is ill-liked upon Olympus, though he has always longed to meet her.
