FURIESAlso known as ERINYES, EUMENIDES
These are the Goddesses of Rough Justice
No! No! No! If you see three black robed Goddesses with whips and snaky hair loitering outside your door, you can bet your boots you have been up to something anti-social and they have come to get you.At least one of them is called ERINYS. They sometimes go under the name of Eumenides, or the 'Benevolent Ones'. But their 'benevolence' is not for your benefit. Oh no.
Made from the freshly spilt blood of URANUS, their mission is to torment the guilty. Not to mention terrify everyone else.
