"Remember the Erinyes?"
 The Erinyes, Eumenides (or Furies, as Bunny says) were figures from Ancient Greek myth responsible for punishing those who had sworn a false oath, or otherwise bringing vengeance for the dead. The Furies were female figures, sometimes depicted with the wings of bats or birds, and sometimes with serpents attached to their bodies (like the Gorgons) or the body of a dog.
