Eris

Noun1.Eris - (Greek mythology) goddess of discord; sister of Ares
Eris - /e'ris/ The Greek goddess of Chaos, Discord, Confusion, and Things You Know Not Of; her name was latinised to Discordia and she was worshiped by that name in Rome. Not a very friendly deity in the Classical original, she was reinvented as a more benign personification of creative anarchy starting in 1959 by the adherents of Discordianism and has since been a semi-serious subject of veneration in several "fringe" cultures, including hackerdom.

See Church of the SubGenius.
