Hi Everybody!

Ok…you can call it: “The Aftermath of Christmas”. Or “The Balance of 2006” – take your pick.

Anyway, I felt like making something a bit…outrageous, and I can tell you I had a blast creating it.

So that you don’t think I went totally berserk on you, here’s my little History introduction to the theme:

* * *
In Greek mythology the Erinyes or Eumenides (the Romans called them the Furies) were female personifications of vengeance
They were usually said to have been born from the blood of Ouranos when Cronus castrated him. According to a variant account, they issued from an even more primordial level—from Nyx, "Night".
Alecto ("unceasing," who appeared in Virgil's Aeneid), Megaera ("grudging"), and Tisiphone ("avenging murder").
They were avenging spirits of retributive justice, and their task was to punish crimes not within the reach of human justice and were connected with Nemesis as enforcers of a just balance in human affairs. The goddess Nike originally filled a similar role, as the bringer of a just victory. When not stalking victims on Earth, the Furies were thought to dwell in Tartarus, where they applied their tortures to the damned souls there.
The Erinyes are particularly known for the persecution of Orestes for the murder of his mother, Clytemnestra.

* * * *

Of course, these are not at all similar to what both Greeks and Romans imagined. But I tried to make them incorporate a bit of each one’s attributes:

Alecto, the Unceasing, is dressed in black and ready to a non-stopping pursut.
Magaera, the rancorus, is hooded and cloaked to keep the resentment inside
Tisiphone, the avenger, wears the red of blood and the skulls of the sineful on her belt and gloves.

Hope you…like them and find them a “nice” home in your game.
May your 2007 be free on their pursut
