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.

Magnificent, as usual. Quick question: what's that pendant she's wearing? It kinda looks like lipstick, though I'm sure it's anything but. I gotta wonder if she got "wet" from all this bloodshed, and is hiding it under all that blood...nah, that's just stupid, though she'd undoubtedly get sexual pleasure from her "work". I'm kinda shocked she was never in the God of War games, as she would have made a fine antagonist. Oh well.

(Shudders) This woman was worse than Ares. Ya know, if that red stuff ain't blood, it'd be scarier, since she polluted the rivers with the corpses of the people she's killed. Either way, Enyo was an evil goddess. Do you think you could do one of Nemesis in the future? This picture is awesome!

I really like a lot of the art you put out and loved seeing it since I played Castle Age, but the reflection seems very flat, unnatural and lacking (wings). Otherwise, a great piece, much like whatever else you do.
