Best Answer

The furies are physical embodyment of the ancient gods, typically portrayed as horrific female figures. In mythology they were in charge of punishing those who offended the most basic laws, such as:

1: Blood crimes (against your mother, not necessarily father as male heritage was unknown in ancient times), until the trial of Athens where Apollo forced the furies to accept the married father as blood, in respect for the marriage of Zeus and Hera.

2: Food - any crime involving attacking an individual or group via the food supply (poisoning, burning, etc)

3: Travelers - Guests were sacred and protected by Zeus, to disrespect a traveler or guest was strictly taboo

Hope that helps...
