LET┤S WIKIATTACK!!

Enyo (Greek: Ἐνυώ, English translation: "warlike" in Greek mythology) was an ancient goddess of war, acting as a counterpart and companion to the war god Ares. She is also identified as his sister, and daughter of Zeus and Hera, in a role closely resembling that of Eris; with Homer in particular representing the two as the same goddess. She is also accredited as the mother of Enyalius, a minor war god, by Ares. However, the name Enyalius can also be used as a title for Ares himself.

As goddess of war, Enyo is responsible for orchestrating the destruction of cities, often accompanying Ares into battle and depicted "as supreme in war". During the fall of Troy, Enyo inflicted horror and bloodshed in the war, along with Eris, and Phobos ("Fear") and Deimos ("Dread"), the two sons of Ares. She, Eris, and the two sons of Ares are depicted on Achillesĺs shield.

Enyo was involved in the war of the Seven Against Thebes and Dionysusĺs war with the Indians as well. Enyo so delighted in warfare that she even refused to take sides in the battle between Zeus and the monster Typhon:

"Eris (Strife) was Typhon's escort in the mellay, Nike (Victory) led Zeus into battle . . . impartial Enyo held equal balance between the two sides, between Zeus and Typhon, while the thunderbolts with booming shots revel like dancers in the sky."

She was also connected to the Roman goddess of war, Bellona, and the Anatolian goddess Ma.

At Thebes and Orchomenos, a festival called Homol˘´a, which was celebrated in honour of Zeus, Demeter, Athena and Enyo, was said to have received the surname of Homolo´us from Homolo´s, a priestess of Enyo. A statue of Enyo, made by the sons of Praxiteles, stood in the temple of Ares at Athens.Among the Graeae in Hesiod there is one called Enyo.

Enyos existed in plural; they were not a single goddess, but rather a series of spirits.
