In Greek mythology, Akhlys (or Achlys; in Greek, Αχλύς) was a being known as the Mist of Death, who clouded over the eyes of the dying. She was the first created being, existing even before Chaos. She may have been one of the Keres, who were female death-spirits and the daughers of Nyx (Night). She may also have been the goddess of poisons.
