ENYO

Greek War Goddess

Goddess of War, Blood and Violence

This is not surprising as she’s a close relative of War God ARES. It must run in the family. Although no-one is quite sure whether she’s his wife, daughter or sister. (When the Romans adopted her under the name BELLONA things were just as confusing.)

Her best friend is ERIS and she’s also one of the GRAEAE sisters (perhaps an honorary member?). In short, ENYO is horrid and horrible and best avoided unless you enjoy that kind of thing.
