History[edit | edit source]
Early History[edit | edit source]
The Twin Furies were actually triplets, consisting of Nymora, Avaryss and an unnamed sister. The demons were part of one soul that had split into three multiple personalities, which was considered an extremely rare occurrence in demon society. This unusual phenomenon caused the furies to share an extremely close and special bond with each other.
During Zamorak's uprising against Zaros, he requested two of the five remaining Dragon Riders to serve him. Morvannon and Apropos agreed to side with Zamorak, but the other three, Hannibus, Ablenkian and Balustan did not, the latter two siding with Zaros. Hannibus forced both sides to wait first, and due to this, none of the Dragon Riders were present during the uprising. Zamorak took note of this and proceeded to label Morvannon and Apropos as oathbreakers, tasking his followers with their elimination. The Furies, with the assistance of their hellhounds, hunted Morvannon down and killed her. They did not bother searching Morvannon's corpse for an egg, having believed that the Ilujanka were infertile.
Around the Fourth Age, the unnamed fury ran into Gregorovic, who proceeded to kill and devour her. Nymora and Avaryss were enraged and vowed to kill Gregorovic in revenge. The furies believed him to be a human, but Gregorovic was actually a Chthonian demon named Erasinus whose mind had been broken and warped by Sliske. When it was known that Morvannon had possibly carried an egg on her, Zamorak ordered them to resume the hunt for her child, only permitting them to hunt Gregorovic down when the child, if it existed, was killed.
The Heart[edit | edit source]
When the Heart was discovered, Zamorak sent the Twin Furies to claim the pool of anima in his name. The Twin Furies ran into Vindicta and Gregorovic, along with Helwyr. The Furies declared war on the other factions, calling upon the Kinshra and their demonic subordinates to aid them in battle.
Due to fighting in the Heart, the Twin Furies were unable to fulfil their primary task of dealing with oathbreakers. As a result, Nymora sent Miithrius and Zymthara to Daemonheim. The two demons would work with adventurers in claiming the emblems held by traitorous demons for a short time before they were recalled for other tasks.
Although not seen during the quest, the Furies eventually withdrew from the Heart.
Heading to Senntisten[edit | edit source]
To stop the Elder Gods from hatching their eggs and beginning The Great Revision, Azzanadra requested that Zamorak come to assist in draining the eggs of shadow anima. The World Guardian met with Zamorak at his headquarters; he was already aware of the plan and agreed to join. Knowing that he would be fighting ancient and powerful enemies, Zamorak ordered the Twin Furies to head to the ruins of Senntisten. They would be some of the last allies to arrive into the already hectic battle, stationing themselves at the entrance to Senntisten's sewers in the TzekHaar Front.
Following Zamorak's departure from Senntisten, the Twin Furies remained behind, stating that they were fighting in Zamorak's name.
The Twin Furies eventually left Senntisten.
Zamorakian Civil War[edit | edit source]
Following Zamorak's banishment from Gielinor along with the rest of the gods, the Twin Furies decided to align themselves with K'ril's faction as they were all demons, eventually becoming involved in a civil war against Bilrach's faction. Avaryss coordinated the demonic attacks on Bilrach's forces with devastating effect, forcing him to withdraw back to Daemonheim with his forces. At the same time, he had also tasked Moia with finding out who was coordinating the attacks and eliminate them.
During Moia's investigation, she learned from a mortally wounded cultist that Avaryss was the one responsible for the attacks and was located at the Hydra Gate in the Infernal Source Dig Site. Moia made her way there by opening a rift at the Sword of Edicts, where she confronted the demon. Initially believing that the half-Mahjarrat was on a suicide mission, Avaryss summoned four Chaos Demons to handle her, but Moia absorbed their souls through a powerful diabolus that Trindine had given her. Avaryss then fought Moia herself but was defeated. She taunted Moia, stating that the rest of the Mahjarrat would never accept her before Moia absorbed her soul with the diabolus.
Upon learning of her sister's capture, Nymora was blackmailed by Moia to work for the Mahjarrat as she threatened to destroy her soul otherwise. Without Avaryss' guidance, the Mahjarrat faction were slowly pushing back K'ril's forces. K'ril wanted to continue fighting, but Nymora, seeing the futility of their efforts, betrayed him to the Mahjarrat and witnessed him being banished back to Infernus. Nymora then demanded that Moia return Avaryss, but she refused to. She tried to lash out, but Moia threatened to destroy her soul, forcing her to stand down.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Twin Furies' name may be a reference to the Furies (Erinyes) of Greek mythology, whose origin story is articulated within Hesiod's Theogony. The Furies (of which there are canonically recognised to be three) emerged from an act of violence between two divine family members, taking the form of chthonic deities of vengeance - both against those who harm family members and also those who have sworn a false oath. This theme is closely reiterated in the story of Avaryss, the Unceasing and Nymora, the Vengeful, who seek vengeance upon Gregorovic and the other generals located within the Heart of Gielinor.
- As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this boss was 14,949 kills for normal mode and 2,018 for hard mode. At this time, this was the record for the most-killed hard mode bosses in the Heart of Gielinor.
- This had increased to 24,235 for normal mode and had not increased for hard mode by 13 December 2018.
- Despite possessing a total life points pool of 200,000 (the same as the other generals apart from Telos), both furies have an individual life point pool of 250,000 in normal mode, or 350,000 in challenge mode.[source needed]
- They were the last of the original generals of the Heart to make an appearance in a quest.
- According to Inquisition Profiles, demon multiples such as the Twin Furies are the result of a single demon soul being split into multiple physical forms at birth, an event considered to be rare. While they possess independent personalities, they share an unbreakable link that allows them to communicate over vast distances and are fiercely loyal to one another.

They are, of course, a rare anomaly: a 'difficult birth' from the Heart of Dis that sees a single soul split into multiple physical forms. The separate entities present independent personalities, but they are linked by an unspoken (and unbreakable) pact. They have the ability to communicate over vast distances, and to form unspoken plans in the blink of an eye. They also form a fierce loyalty to one another."
