Best Answer

NIKE (or Nicé) was the winged goddess or spirit of victory, both in battle and peaceful competition. When Zeus was gathering allies at the start of the Titan War, Styx brought her four children, Nike (Victory), Zelos (Rivalry), Kratos (Strength) and Bia (Force) into the service of the god.

Nike was appointed his charioteer, and all four were appointed as sentinels standing beside the throne of the god. Beyond this Nike never acquired any distinctive mythology of her own.

Mother:

Styx/Oileis (River of divine promise)

Father:

Pallas (Titan of the spear)

Sister:

Bia (Force, Power, Might, Compulsion )

Brother:

Zelos (Emulation, Zeal, Eager Rivalry, Envy)

Kratos (Strength, Might, Power)

Greek goddess of victory.
Nike was the female spirit of victory, and the goddess of wisdom and war, Athena's, constant companion. Nike's enemy was Eris, spirit of discord. She was Ares, the God of War's, companion.

Nike is the Greek/Roman God of Victory, she has no specific powers. But, like most gods, she can altar the mortal world the way she wants.

She is often said to tip the scales of war to either create the outcome to her desire OR make the war as exciting as she wishes.

She is often said to be a daughter of Ares/Mars, the God of war, however there is very few actual texts depicting this, only that they were very close.

She is rarely mentioned in Greek Mythology but less so mentioned in Roman Mythology.

She is often depicted as a young woman "with eyes that could kill an army with one glance" and also with Huge glistening wings, that changed according to her mood (Glistening, Snow White feathers when happy - Black and scaly when mad) however the mood change effect may only be rumor.

Hope this clears it up for you, there isn't very much information relaying to her, she is only a minor God.
