He was the son of Ares and Aphrodite. He is the twin brother of Phobos and the goddess Enyo who accompanied Ares into battle, as well as his father's attendants, Trembling, Fear, Dread and Panic. Deimos is more of a personification and an abstraction of the sheer terror that is brought by war and he never appeared as an actual character in any story in Greek Mythology. His Roman equivalent was Formido or Metus.
Deimos and Phobos in Sparta 
The two brothers Deimos and Phobos were particularly worshiped in the city state of Sparta as they were the sons of Ares, the god of war.
Story Appearances 
One known appearance was in The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan. In the Demigod Files, Deimos and his brother Phobos (God of Terror and Fear), was the half-brother of Clarisse La Rue, a demigod child of Ares. Deimos stole her chariot, and tried to cause mass panic to delay them, such as send a sea serpent to attack the ferry they were riding, or shooting a cannon into the aquarium.
