PHOBETOR

Greek Nightmare God

Also known as Ikelos, Icelos

God of Nightmares

Especially ones involving big hairy spiders, bloodthirsty rats, or slavering Bugblatter Beasts.

The brother of Dream Gods MORPHEUS and PHANTASOS, he specializes in dreams involving animals, and is also responsible for night-time fears and phobias. So if you suffer from bad dreams, it’s PHOBETOR you need to talk to.

Just remember the name: Phobetor = Phobia. And if you’re scared of him, you may be suffering from Phobophobia.
