Erinyes ee RIHN ih eez
The Punisher of the Unfaithful
Originally called Erinys... later called, Erinyes. Referred to as, "the mist-walking..." and, with fear and respect, "the kindly one". She would harass and injure her prey but not kill them. Homer refers to her in the singular (The Odyssey, 15.234) but, much later (circa 450 B.C.E.), Euripides used the number ’three’ and eventually ’they’ assumed the names: Tisiphone, Megaera and Alecto. Their brass wings made escape impossible, their ripping claws made their torment relentless and horrible.

We often confuse ’them’ with the Roman goddesses, the Furiae (Furies).

nope, test is still working
Nope, I checked by redoing the test with different answers and came up with being a Dragon. Guess we're just enough alike to fall into same category. :)
