Case File: Aeneas vs. the Erinyes and Hera

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Aeneas) accuses Defendants (the Erinyes and Hera) of murder in the first degree for inciting a needless war. When Aeneas arrived in Italy, King Latinus offered the hero his daughter Lavinia. Just one problem: Lavinia was already married to a prince named Turnus. Hera jumped on the opportunity and sent Alecto down to make Turnus furious enough to start a war.

Case Status: Case pending. All investigators sent to question either Hera or the Erinyes end up spending long stints in the Dungeons of the Damned.
