Keep your oaths

''Keep Your Oaths'' - In Norse culture, if a Viking took an oath and went back on his word, it was said that his sword would turn against him in battle and incur the wrath of the gods.

In Greek mythology, the Nereids are sea nymphs, the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris, sisters to Nerites. They often accompany Poseidon and can be friendly and helpful to sailors fighting perilous storms. They are particularly associated with the Aegean Sea, where they dwelt with their father in the depths within a silvery cave. The most notable of them are Thetis, wife of Peleus and mother of Achilles; Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon; and Galatea, love of the Cyclop Polyphemus.

La Nuit (1883) by William-Adolphe Bouguereau   --In Greek mythology, Nyx (Nox in Roman translation) is the deity of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of personified gods such as Hypnos (sleep) and Thánatos (death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.
