In Greek mythology, Nike was the Greek personification of "victory". She was the daughter of the Titan Pallas and the goddess Styx, and had three other siblings: Cratos ("strength"), Bia ("force"), and Zelus ("zeal"). The Greeks described her as a woman with wings, dressed in a robe with a staff or wreath. She could run and fly at great speeds.

In Mythology

Nike was often seen as Athena's protector, a constant companion of the goddess of strategic warfare. When Nike was in Athens, her wings were cut so she couldn't fly away.
