"A Goneril. A Medusa."


Goneril is one of the king's daughters in Shakespeare’s King Lear. In the play, she and her sister Regan inherit their father's kingdom while he is still alive, and then proceed to treat him abysmally.

Medusa is a creature from Greek mythology, one of three Gorgon sisters with snakes for hair. Anyone who looked directly at her would be turned to stone, but Perseus managed to behead her by guiding himself with a mirrored shield.
