In Greek mythology Nyx was the Goddess of Night. She was an ultimate female beginning and one of the first elements emerging from Chaos along with day, fire, and water. Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. Nyx had prophetic powers, and gave oracles from her home at the edge of the cosmos. She was older and more powerful than Zeus, who deferred to her wishes.
For some that experience pain in the day, night and Nyx are a welcome relief. They welcome her into their lives and their arms. Night is also the time for inspiration, and it is told that the Muses sing during the nighttime to the Gods and to Nyx herself.
The Mystic Krewe of Nyx, named after the powerful and beautiful goddess of night, embraces a sisterhood and friendship amongst its members.
