Perhaps Keres are related to the di manes of Roman belief, the spirits of the underworld that can be both demon and daimon.
As Greek thought and history evolved, so did the concept of the dream, moving from a mystical to a rationalized explanation of what dreams are and how they are used in healing.

 Thanatos, Greek Mythology Link.
Thanatos, in bringing death, is often followed by the fates of death or Keres, who are called hounds of Hades, and are Death-spirits, devourers of life.
Thanatos may come at any time, but his intervention in the case of Alcestis, who died a vicarious death in the place of her husband, is one of his most memorable.
Thanatos, they say, is subject to the MOERAE, who are the three sisters who decide on human fate; and as everybody has a portion in life, the individual fate (moira) is usually present when Thanatos comes to fetch a mortal.
