Raised in Granny Goodness' orphanage, the Furies were taught military tactics under Goodness and assassination under Kanto. Goodness instilled fanatical loyalty in the Furies, teaching them to be loyal to her first, but for their foremost loyalty to be for Darkseid, making them willing to "Die for Darkseid".
Known Female Furies include:
- Artemiz, an archer with bio-seeking arrows. Not to be confused with the Amazon Artemis, who took the identity of Wonder Woman for a time.
- Big Barda is a powerful New God from Apokolips who fell in love with Mister Miracle and became a warrior for good.
- Bernadeth, sister of Desaad, armed with a burning "faren-knife". Often challenges Lashina's leadership.
- Bloody Mary, a vampire-like character with energy-draining eye-beams.
- Gilotina, a young Fury who could slice through things with karate chops, later abandoned the Furies to work with Project Cadmus.
- Knockout, a Superboy villain who, like Barda, escaped the Furies. She has super-strength and views life-or-death battle as flirting.
- Lashina is the field leader of the Furies. She is armed with flexible steel bands which she can control mentally. On one occasion, during a Furies mission to capture Mister Miracle, Lashina was betrayed by her teammate Bernadeth and became stranded on Earth. During her Earth exile, she joined the Suicide Squad under the name "Duchess". She eventually led the Suicide Squad on a mission to Apokolips, where she killed Bernadeth. Darkseid brought Bernadeth back to life and slew Lashina in turn, but has since resurrected Lashina as well.
- Mad Harriet, a cackling madwoman with razor-sharp claws.
- Malice Vundabar, the niece of Virman Vundabar. Apparently even younger than Gilotina, she resembles Alice in Wonderland, and controls a savage, disembodied mouth called Chessure.
- Speed Queen, as her name suggests, has super-speed.
- Stompa, who creates earthquakes by stamping her foot.
- Twilight's mother. Name unknown, she escaped the Furies centuries ago, and left her daughter to be raised on Earth, where she eventually became a Supergirl villain/supporting character.
- Wunda, the most recent Fury with light-based powers.
