The Nothingness From Which All Else Sprang.

Chaos is a character in Hesiod and Homer's myth. He débuts, with his appearance in around 700 B.C. and usually ends at around the 9th Century.

HistoryEdit

In Greek Mythology, Chaos, according to Hesiod, was the first thing to exist: "at first Chaos came to be" (or was) "but next" from Chaos, came Gaia, Tartarus, and Eros. Unambiguously born "from Chaos" were Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night).

The Greek word "chaos", a neuter noun, means "yawning" or "gap", but what, if anything, was located on either side of this chasm is unclear. For Hesiod, Chaos, like Tartarus, though personified enough to have born children, was also a place, far away, underground and "gloomy", beyond which lived the Titans. And, like the earth, the ocean, and the upper air, It was also capable of being affected by Zeus' thunderbolts.

  1. Chaos did not have any consorts obviously because how would you talk to a dark and meaningless void and how would you mate with it? Gaia did, but is unknown how.
