Sadly for Orestes, the cycle of violence doesnít end there. Anyone in ancient Greece who slays a family member becomes the property of the vengeful Eumenides ("Kindly Ones,") aka the Furies, whom even the gods cannot control. Apollo, god of prophecy, pledges to protect Orestes and tells him to go to the temple of Athena and invoke her aid. Athena acts as Orestes' attorney of sorts, and successfully argues that he is not the rightful prey of the Furies, because killing his mother doesn't count as kinslaying.

Sadly for Orestes, the cycle of violence doesnít end there. The murder of his mother plagues him with guilt and soon starts seeing the Erinyes (anthropomorphic versions of vengueance) surrounding him, prompting him to flee in pain.
