|Look up Moros in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.|
He is the offspring of Nyx, the primordial goddess of the night. Morus is therefore the brother of the Moirai, or the Fates, who controlled destiny. Moros' siblings Thanatos and Ker represented the physical aspects of death—Ker being the bringer of violent death and terminal sickness, while Thanatos represented a peaceful passing away.
Moros in mythology
In Prometheus Bound, the titular Titan suggests that he gave humanity the spirit Elpis in order to help them ignore the inevitability of Moros. He is also referred to as "the all-destroying god, who, even in the realm of Death, does not set his victim free," further supporting his image as representative of the inevitability of death and suffering.
