Greek Demoness

Leader of the Furies

Her favorite pastime is to swim in the ice cold and bitter waters of the Cocytus, the nastiest tributary of the River Styx. This keeps her fit and helps her stay on top of the job.

Her name means ‘unceasing anger’ and if necessary she can seek you out with her torch, which is of the flaming variety. She carries a snake whip, replenished with spares coiled in her hair.
