Daughter of Night and Erebus, abstract deities existing between
Earth and Hades, or the daughter of Oceanus.
Nemesis is the divine representation of Fate paying back those who are
taking too much from life or others who are moderate in their ways.
Nemesis was the goddess who had to be placated if a person knew they
deserved punishment or that they were having more than their fair share
Polycrates, tyrant of Samos, cast a valuable ring into the sea to placate
Nemesis for his good fortune. The ring was returned to him in the stomach
of a fish, and from then on his luck rapidly came to an end.
The nature of Nemesis could be hard; she often rejected the offerings
of those wishing to escape judgement and her severe persona was very
popular with soldiers.
Nemesis holds a finger to her lips to warn humans against attracting
her attention to their clamouring below.
