Enyo was a monstrous goddess of war

Enyo was a shocking, warlike goddess and the counterpart and companion of Greek god Ares. She was either the mother or the sister of Ares.

Enyo's name derives from the ancient Greek word "enyos", meaning "horror" in the Greek language.
Oftentimes she was described as the "Waster of Cities" and usually she was covered in blood and wearing a saffron robe.

The Latin equivalent of Enyo was goddess Bellona.
