Nemesis, Punishment Deity


Nemesis is tasked with inflicting divine punishment on foolish infidels that dare not revere god. In spite of her intimidating reputation, countless mortals are bewitched by her beauty. Some even willfully curse the gods for just a glimpse of her.


Name OriginEdit

The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νέμειν [némein], meaning "to give what is due". In Greek mythology, Nemesis (Greek, Νέμεσις), also called Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia ("the goddess of Rhamnous") at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods). Another name was Adrasteia, meaning "the inescapable." The Greeks personified vengeful fate as a remorseless goddess: the goddess of revenge.
