The Furies are the daughters of the primeval gods Ouranus and Gaea. Among the few gods active before and after Zeus conquered Olympus, they punished offenders who turned against blood kin. Their principal function was to avenge fathers or most often mothers against their undutiful children. Often when a son failed to avenge a parent killed unjustly, the Furies haunted him until he made retribution on his parents' death.[citation needed]

Like the rest of the Olympians, the Furies were exiled by Typhon, until Hercules defeated him and managed to free them all.[4]
