Aether

                                                        In Greek mythology, Aether was the personification and elemental god of ' the bright, glowing upper air of heaven - the substance of light'. Aether embodies the pure upper air that the gods breathe, as opposed to normal air breathed by mortals. Aether was the son of Erebus (the god of darkness) and Nyx (the goddess of night) and the brother of Hemera (the goddess of day).

                  According to some versions, Aether was described as son of Choas. Aether was also known as Zeus's defensive wall, the boundary that locked Tartarus from the rest of cosmos.
