Who is Nyx, Goddess of the Night?
Nyx is the goddess of the night. She is one of the eldest gods and is often depicted as a beautiful woman with wings on her back. Nyx has been worshiped by many cultures throughout history, including ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and many other cultures.
Nyx was not always seen as a goddess. Originally she was seen as an air spirit who had no gender or name. She was often associated with darkness and death in early cultures but eventually evolved into a goddess of night and magic.
The term nyx comes from the Greek word for “night” which means that it is appropriate that she be worshiped at night time when darkness has fallen over the earth. In some cases people would worship Nyx during the day to ensure that they would be protected

Dark of night
Make us swoon
Hear us, hear us
Make a fuss

we do atone.
I bow before
the darkest night.
Descend upon us
and give us light.
