Ancient Greek Daemons associated with Battles fought in War – Machai were actually not a single – but multiple form. They were overseers of both Adversaries in Combat, making sure hate and pride went hand in hand. Often, The Machai worked in tandem with other related Daemons (Strife, Starvation and Victory), to ensure that the results of the ''Contest'' went in their ''favor''. Said to be somewhat controlled by proper offerings made by Priests, some texts state that The Machai were both Male and Female in form. Shown with great armor and weapons, their very ''whisper into the ear'' of a soldier or commander was enough to ''spur on'' a Victory or Defeat.
