A Fury (also called an Erinys) is a female Light Fae who possesses the ability to induce madness through eye contact. This illness is incurable, untreatable, and ultimately deadly as the insanity grows until the victim suffers cardiac arrest within days from sheer psychological trauma.
Olivia and her two sisters, Giselle and Ada , were Furies. The insanity caused by a Fury intensifies until the victim dies. A Fury requires eye contact in order to use her powers, but once a Fury has "inflicted" her victim with insanity there is no known way of stopping it. This applies also to themselves, as even the reflection of their own gaze can drive them mad. When a Fury activates her power, her eyes glow red.
They are called by their name in Greek mythology, Erinys, in the Game.
- In Greek mythology the Erinyes also known as Furies, were female chthonic deities of vengeance; they were sometimes referred to as "infernal goddesses". They correspond to the Dirae in Roman mythology, and some suppose that they are called Furies in hell, Harpies on earth, and Dirae in heaven. According to variant accounts, they emerged from an even more primordial level — from Nyx, "Night", or from a union between air and mother earth. Their number is usually left indeterminate. The Erinyes live in Erebus and are more ancient deities than any of the Olympians. Their task is to hear complaints brought by mortals against the insolence of the young to the aged, of children to parents, of hosts to guests, and of householders or city councils to suppliants - and to punish such crimes by hounding culprits relentlessly. The Erinyes are crones and, depending upon authors, described as having snakes for hair, dog's heads, coal black bodies, bat's wings, and blood-shot eyes. In their hands they carry brass-studded scourges, and their victims die in torment.
