(Greek Deity) FURIES

Also known as DIRAE, ERINNYES, ERINYES
Greek Goddesses of : Justice
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Hades Hell Hags - the Godesses of justice. Alecto, Tisiphone and Megaera - will torment wrong doers until they atone for their sins, or die.

Orestes was hounded relentlessly and even a verdict of not guilty passed by the Olympian gods didn't put an end to the torment. He coined the phrase 'the Kindly Ones', just after Aphrodite bribed them to leave him alone. Some people never lose their sense of humour!

Oedipus was tortured too. Ok, the fellow he slew on the road to Cadmusit turned out to be his father, but it was strictly self defence. It's all black and white to the Furies. A sin is a sin.

Born from droplets of Uranus' blood after the sickle and nut-sack incident, the Furies were, well, furious. No ammount of prayers or even tears could make them cease their endless persecution of the guilty, and weren't averse to bringing in reinforcements for repeat offenders in the form of the equally uncompromising Dike.
