Written by in Comments Off on About Eos – Goddess of the Dawn

In Greek mythology, Eos is the personification and goddess of the dawn. She is a radiant and enchanting figure known for her beauty and captivating allure. Eos is significant in Greek mythology, with her stories intertwined with love, tragedy, and immortality. We will delve into the fascinating tales of Eos and explore her birth and family, her role as the goddess of the dawn, and her passionate love affairs with mortal men.

Birth & Family

Eos, the goddess of the dawn, was the daughter of Hyperion and Theia and sister to Helios, Selene, and Aether. She is known as a Titan to humans, but she and her siblings are said to be siblings to Titans and Olympians alike, so there isn’t an accurate term for them that all can agree on. Eos was married to Astraeus, and they had children known as the Anemoi, the wind gods: Boreas (North Wind), Zephyrus (West Wind), Notus (South Wind), and Eurus (East Wind).
Love Affairs and Tragic Endings

Eos’ enchanting beauty and insatiable desire for love led her into numerous love affairs with mortal men. However, these encounters often ended tragically, bringing sorrow and despair to those who fell under her spell. One of Eos’ most famous lovers was Orion, the mighty hunter. Eos was captivated by Orion’s charm and carried him away to the island of Delos. Unfortunately, Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and Orion’s lover grew jealous and shot him with her arrows, ending their love story in tragedy.

Primary Abilities


Eos is the god of the dawn. After all, she is the mother of it. Her lightning that strikes down others during the daytime shows this, as well as her ability to manipulate the weather and time around her during those moments.

Weather Manipulation

As the goddess of the dawn and sky, she has a lot of control over the weather during that part of the day and can set the stage for various events. She can use her lightning to push back other powers like Gaia’s Titan army.

Spoken Telepathy

According to the current canon, she can read lips, hear thoughts, and see into people’s minds at some point during her presence in a room, but it is not shown if she does it from miles away.

Fate Manipulation

As the goddess of fate, it is no wonder that she has control over fate and destiny, but several stories have been told about her choices in the past on various occasions. Some have been spent arguing with Zeus about this, while others considered what might happen if one or more characters made a particular choice.

The goddess of the dawn has shown herself to be a very capable deity in manipulating the weather and time around her. She is also not afraid to use lightning in battle when it’s supposed to be an act of mercy or indifference instead, as shown by how she killed those who harmed Eos and humanity.
