I drawed these two boys a long time ago, but I'm posting them now because someone became interested in them... and I can't draw anything new 'cuz I'm studying a lot!!
So... Hypnos (left) and Thanatos (right) are twins and powerful gods who live in... guess where? Yep! THE UNDERWORLD!!
They are the sons of Nyx (the Night) and Erebus (the Darkness).
Thanatos is the personification of a non violent-death, very much like Macaria (although I think Macaria is a particular kind of Blessed Death, the one we all want for us). He flies with his silent wings and a torch with which he guides people to the Underworld. He’s merciless and indiscriminate… but in some stories, some chosen ones can outwit him. He's said to be more kind than Hades or the Keres (violent death).
Hypnos is the personification of the sleep. The legend says every night Thanatos and Hypnos would discuss who will take men… and sometimes Thanatos wins, but most of the time, thankfully, it's Hypnos who does. Another legend says Hypnos doesn’t have the powerful abduction skills Thanatos has and he’s constantly trying to imitate him. Because of this, the majority of us people don’t die, Hypnos only lets us sleep for a while
Anyway, Hypnos is quite nice and idle. He lives in a dark cave with poppies in the entrance. The river of forgetfulness, Lethe, flows through his realm.
