In Greek mythology, Erebus was primeval god of darkness. Erebus born out of  Chaos with Nyx (night).  Erebus took Nyx as his wife and had many children with her. His children include Aether the god of sky, Hemera the goddess of the day, Nemesis the goddess of revenge, Charon the ferryman, Moirai the god of fate, Hypnos the god of sleep, and Thanatos the god of death.

                       In Greek mythology, Erebus is described as a region of the underworld, where the dead pass immediately after dying, and is sometimes used interchangeably with Tartarus.
