Hypnos was the son of Nyx and Erebus. He was also the twin brother of Thanatos. His wife, Pasithea, was the youngest of The Graces; together they had three children, known as the Oneiroi, Morpheus, Phobeter, and Phantasos.

During the Trojan War, Troy's side were losing so Hera wanted to help them but first she had to make Zeus fall asleep . She then asked Hypnos to put him to sleep, but he refused. She bribed him with many things and he still said no. She then told him she would give him Pasithea as his wife because she knew he had loved her. He agreed to that and he made Hera swear on the river Styx so that she wouldn't fall back on her promise. Hypnos did his job and zeus had never found out.
This was not the first time Hypnos made a sleeping spell on Zeus and both times Hera was involved.
