One creation wrought destruction upon another. Nixia pierced straight through the creature's eye with the ever-burning Skyblaze Lance. Still, as she did so, the arcane researcher felt greatly anguished, as if she were a mother abandoning her own child. It was the first time she considered discontinuing her work. Nixia should have understood that sacrifices were necessary to make new discoveries, but with her kind heart, she was not sure if she was willing to pay the price.
Nixia is an uncommon feminine name. It could be a variant of Nixie which is a German name meaning "water sprite", usually beautiful, and unlike pixies, nixies are belligerent toward men. Or a variant of Nyx meaning "night" in Greek.
Nyx is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night, the daughter of Khaos and the wife of Erebos (Darkness). A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep), Thanatos (Death) and Hemera (Day). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty, that she is feared by Zeus himself. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.
Creator is something or someone that brings something new or original into being. In different religious conseptions the creator deity or creator god (often called the Creator) is a deity responsible for the creation of the world (cosmos or universe).
