Nemesis is the Goddess of Retribution and Goddess of Revenge.

Greek Mythology

In ancient Greek religion, Nemesis, also called Rhamnousia or Rhamnusia ("the goddess of Rhamnous"), is the goddess who enacts retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods).

Nemesis has been described as the daughter of Oceanus or Zeus, but according to Hyginus she was a child of Erebus and Nyx. She has also been described, by Hesiod, as the daughter of Nyx alone. In the Theogony, Nemesis is the sister of the Moirai (the Fates), the Keres (Black Fates), the Oneiroi (Dreams), Eris (Discord) and Apate (Deception).

In the God of War Series

God of War III

Nemesis does not appear and she doesn't aid the gods and Zeus in the Second Titanomachy. Nemesis is referenced by Hephaestus, he mentioned retribution, he gives Kratos a weapon named after her called Nemesis Whip. She must have used her powers to help Kratos to get his vengeance on Zeus for betraying him, since she is the goddess of revenge.
