In Greek and Roman mythology, the Furies were female spirits of justice and vengeance. They were also called the Erinyes (angry ones). Known especially for pursuing people who had murdered family members, the Furies punished their victims by driving them mad. When not punishing wrongdoers on earth, they lived in the underworld and tortured the damned.

Persephone was born to Demeter, the Goddess of harvest and was said to have been abducted by Hades who rules the Underworld. In her mother’s grief over her daughter being promised to Hades by Zeus, king of gods Demeter mourned and devised a punishment where all the crops became stillborn and the soil barren. Moved by this, Zeus ordered Hermes to escort Persephone back to her mother.
