     Moros was, in Greek Mythology, the Greek God of Luck and Destiny. He was the son of Nix (goddess of nightfall), one of the most relevant deities in this Mythology. Check out more about this god below.


MOROS: GREEK MYTHOLOGY

     Moros in Greek: Μόρος), in Greek Mythology, was the god of luck and destiny, death and the creatures of Tartarus represented a blind entity. According to Hesiod's Theogony, he was the son of Nix, thus being considered a Daemon. Without seeing who the future holds, its character is that of inevitability. Everyone, gods and mortals, and everything, is subordinate to him.


WHAT IS A DAEMON?

     Daemon is a type of being in Greek mythology that closely resembles the geniuses of Arab mythology.

The word daímôn originated with the Greeks in antiquity; however, throughout history, several descriptions have emerged for these beings. The Latin name is daemon, which came to give the word demon in Portuguese.

They are gods of certain entities of human nature, such as Madness, Wrath, Sadness, etc. Xenócrates associated the gods to the equilateral triangle, men to the scalene, and the daimons to the isosceles.


MOROS WAS ALSO AEON

     They imagined him as having the Earth at his feet and in his hands the stars and a scepter, demonstrating his superiority. In other allegories, it is a wheel, attached by a chain, under a rock and with two cornucopias - illustrating its inflexibility and luck.

     Representing fatality itself, "Destiny" dictates events, and even Zeus cannot help it. Its laws are written in a book, the access to which is possible, and yet in an obscure way, by the oracles.

     He could also be called Aeon (eternal time), and they consider him the husband of Ananque and father of the moiras (parches in Rome). To represent him, the Greeks had Moiras, whom they consulted with the gods - to no avail, since destiny is immutable.


MYTH OF MOROS

     Moros 'main myth is where he takes three of Eros' arrows and passes a portion of his energy to them and then hides them in the mortal world. The myth says that these arrows were fired would make time go back to the time of Chaos, making everything start again.

     This arrow became known as the Arrow of Destiny. One would be in the Temple of Eros (in Split, Croatia), another in the lost temple of Moros and another stuck in some tree of the mortal world. If fired separately, they have the ability to make a person's memory go back a few eons in the person's history, but fired together, from the same arc, the three, make everything return to the times of Chaos.
