Ananke (pronounced a-NAN-kee) is the Greek Goddess of necessity. She is one of the first Goddesses, coming into existence at the beginning of time as a snake-like being, entwined with the God Khronos. Ananke and Khronos surrounded the primal egg and divided it into the earth, the heavens, and the seas. Together they created Khaos (Goddess of the air), Aither (God of light), and Erebos (God of darkness). In later mythology, Ananke was said to be the mother of the Moirae (the Fates).
