The Protogenoi are the first entities or beings that come into existence. They form the very fabric of our universe and as such are immortal. The Prôtogenoi are a group of gods from which all the other gods descend. Although generally believed to be the first gods produced from Chaos, some sources mention a pair of deities who were the parents of these Prôtogenoi. These deites represent various elements of nature.
These are the names who made up the Prôtogenoi.

- Phusis (Nature) or Thesis (Creation) – female
- Erebos (Mists of Darkness) – male
- Nyx (Night) – female
