Nemesis was the power that held the balance in the universe. She applied divine justice to mortals and relentlessly spread despair over anyone who committed an act of "hubris" by offending the gods with serious crimes such as arrogance and greed.
Nemesis was born out of Nyx, the goddess of the night. According to some myths, Nemesis was not a goddess but rather a moral sense closely associated with the Furies and the Titaness Themis. Nemesis' most important sanctuary was at Rhamnous of Attica, a place of worship near Marathon.
