Halt, Zagreus. Not one step further. Your father sent me. All in all, I'd rather be on your bad side than his. Now you can turn back like a good little man, or I can send you home the painful way. What'll it be?

Megaera is one of the three Fury Sisters and adoptive daughter of Nyx. She is sent by Hades to stop Zagreus from escaping the Underworld. Zagreus must defeat her before progressing to Asphodel during any given escape attempt.

After her first defeat, Megaera will join the House of Hades as a character that can be interacted with, though she will still attempt to stop Zagreus from entering Asphodel. She will be found drinking in the House's lounge, but only after a run in which she was defeated; if the lounge has yet to be re-opened, she will instead hang around in the hallway, on the opposite side of Zagreus's door from where Nyx usually stands.

Apparently, she's has been tasked with handling matters in Tartarus apart from her sisters; this includes dealing with Zagreus. According to Megaera, a war amongst the mortals has made the Underworld particularly busy, and her sisters are handling matters elsewhere.

Affinity[edit | edit source]

If given Nectar, Megaera will give you the Skull Earring.

After giving Megaera 5 Nectar after gifting for the first time, you will be unable to give her any other gift until you complete a favor for her.

Once completing her favor, giving her Ambrosia will earn you the Companion Battie.

Favor[edit | edit source]

After a random number of encounters with the Furies, Megaera will approach Zagreus in his room, and tell him that she's only stopping him from escaping because she has to. (This requires her to have first been in his room to collect her belongings.) After this interaction, Megaera can receive Ambrosia the next time she is met in the House of Hades.

It is NOT necessary to enable the "Extreme Measures" condition of the Pact of Punishment.

Romance[edit | edit source]

Reaching maximum affinity with Megaera will allow Zagreus to either begin a romantic relationship with her or continue as friends. Thanatos, Dusa and Megaera can all be romanced at the same time with no negative repercussions.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...The ancient Fury Sisters deal retribution for eternity against all those whose lives unspeakably befouled the lives of others. They each seem to relish their grim work, though none so much as Megaera, the first among them. Her whip is very much notorious around these parts, and there are those who say she is more than my equal in the martial ways, a conjecture I see no reason to test. Though she by all accounts appears to lead a solitary life, she and the Master's son do have some history; although I am not privy to the details, and know much better than to ask. I do, however, know what she herself has volunteered to me, as we have on occasion passed the off-work time together in the Master's lounge. She has no parents; her surrogate mother is the goddess Nyx. She resents the Master's youthful son for words he spoke in careless arrogance. She follows the Master's orders and honors him; but her commitment is to the House itself, I think.'

Combat[edit | edit source]

Megaera can appear as a boss in Tartarus. For more information on the boss of Tartarus, see The Furies.
