"(Built) a labyrinth, the passage-ways of which were so

winding that those unfamiliar with them had difficulty in

making their way out; in this labyrinth the Minotaur was

maintained and here it devoured the seven youths and

seven maidens.”

Hecate is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, dogs, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. In the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles, she was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour, Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul.  She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family.

The Erinyes | The Avengers

The vengeful three. Skin fair, almost translucent, their bones clear, and visible to those around. Broken and lost were the ones who came to them. They went against the natural order of things, these weak beings. Drive them to insanity, into madness, we will let them get sick, and fall apart. Let them break down, their crimes will pay.

I think that “respect” is a difficult word in that sense because obviously when you find yourself so super intelligent — and he does — it’s hard to have a professional respect. I mean, obviously, if Jack were a skillful and outstanding policeman, I would be in jail — but I like him. I like his enthusiasm. I like his energy. I like his persistence of trying to catch this killer. I like his wife for the same reasons, this stubborn, beautiful woman. I enjoy being together with them. I enjoy the moments of honesty in front of the fireplace. I enjoy being together with Alana, and so on. So they’re not being played by Hannibal — I mean, they are — but he’s honest in the moment he’s with them. He’s always honest with them. He likes them.
