Nylea is the God of the Hunt on Theros.

Description[edit | edit source]

Nylea is associated with the hunt, the seasons, forests, predation, hunger, metamorphosis and rebirth. She protects old groves, killing poachers, and allows Purphoros to burn her forests in order to grow new life. Nylea wields a shortbow called Ephixis. She is disgusted by agriculture, which she sees as an aberration from the natural cycle of the world. Nymphs of all kinds pay homage to her, as do sentient humanoids such as satyrs, centaurs, and many citizens of Setessa.
