Styx was one of the Titans in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. Other accounts make her the daughter of Erebus, god of darkness & Nyx, goddess of night. She was the Titan of the Underworld river named after her, and was the embodiment of hatred and detestation.

Styx represented and controlled hatred. This made her one of the most feard Titans. During the "Golden Age" of the Titans, she was the guardian of the Underworld. Before the war, she was married to her cousin Pallas, son of Crius and Eurybia. However, Pallas was killed during the war. Throughout most of the war, she was neutral, like her parents and siblings, the River gods and Ocean nymphs. During the last battle of the Titan War, she chose to side with Zeus and the Olympians, giving her four children, Bia (goddess of force), Cratus (god of Power), Zelus (god of Zeal) and Nike (goddess of Victory) in her service. She was greatly rewarded for her allegiance.
