Eros (Cupid) God of love. Early Greek myths see Eros as a primordial being. According to Hesiod, from Chaos, Eros was born together with Nyx, Erebus, Gaea, and Tartarus. Eros, Gaea and Tartarus seemed to be self-created. Hesiod doesn't write much about Eros except that he was "the fairest among the deathless gods".
