The Keres (singular: Ker) are horrible, black winged, female spirits of death and doom who also act as avenging spirits. They are the daughters of Nyx and Erebus. In the festival of the Anthesteria, the Keres were ritually driven from the house. In later times they were regarded as the vengeful spirits of the dead.

Kora is a Greek goddess. Her name means "the maiden" or "the daughter" and it is a frequent epithet of Persephone. She is the daughter of Demeter and she is the wife of Hades.

Kypris was a Greek Goddess and an epithet of Aphrodite, who was said to have risen from the sea from the island of Cyprus. Aphrodite¹s cult came to Greece from Cyprus, where she was known as Kypris (Lady of Cyprus.) Aphrodite was probably the Cypriot version of the great mother goddess, who was worshiped under various names almost universally around the Near and Middle East. Many primitive idols of the mother goddess (Kypris, or Aphrodite) were found in Cyprus. The Cyprian city of Paphos was the site of one of the oldest centers of her worship.
