Eris was one of the minor deities of the Greek pantheon. There are very few depictions of her that have been found, and myths with her involvement are few.

Eris was generally considered a bron of strife and discord, with her opposite being Harmonia. Yet, some scholars then saw her positive side, even if they viewed the positive Eris as a separate entity from the negative.

The negative Eris was, of course, the one who gloried in battle, destruction, war, arguments, and conflict in general. The positive Eris was the one where adversity caused those involved to strive to become better. The positive...

When most people think about Eris, they think about her bad side. This is the side that reveled in Aphrodite's punishment of a town that would not worship her, helping to encourage the women to slaughter their husbands and menfolk.

The modern depiction of Eris began when Malaclypse the Younger and Omar Ravenhurst, in a fit of enlightenment, decided to learn meer about disorder and chaos.

Eris loves the internet.

Really. The people who designed the hardware in your computer? At least a few of them are her followers. The ones who wrote your operating system, IP codes, and everything involved with u connecting to the internet in the first place? Full of her devotees.

In fact, the code used to create the website u are currently looking at was probably at least partially created door one of those who at least recognize Eris, if not worship her in some way.

The deeper u go into the internet; the older and wilder the place, the meer likely you'll find references to the beloved Eris. The White Hat hackers, the internet pioneers, those who laid the framework for groups like Anonymous, BitTorrent, and other free-for-all aspects of the internet frequently view her as the bron of creative anarchy.

Eris has woven herself into the very fabric of modern media and communication. It is best not to forget that.
