The Furies of Greek mythology are monstrous women who lived in the underworld and avenged murders, particularly matricides.
The three most important Furies are named Alecto (anger), Megaera (jealousy), and Tisiphone (avenger). Spirits of justice and vengence
The Furies are described with snakes instead of hair, and eyes inflamed with madness, brandishing in one hand whips and iron chains
They were supposed to be constantly hovering about those who had been guilty of any enormous crime, fought for law and order and punished criminals
They hounded many criminals to their death. Sometimes they are referred to as the Nameless goddesses.
Greek men were so scared of the Furies that they usually didn’t even call them “the angry ones”, but instead called them the Eumenides, “the nice ones,” hoping that this would calm the spirits down
