epithymia is the broadest of these words. Its meaning may be good,
but it is usually bad. It denotes any natural desire or appetite,
usually with the implication that it is a depraved desire.

pathos has not as broad a meaning as in classical Greek, but
denotes evil desire, chiefly, however, as a condition of the soul
rather than in active operation.

orme indicates hostile motion toward an object, either for
seizing or repelling.

orexis is a desire or appetite, especially seeking the object of
gratification in order to make it one's own.
