MAENAD

Maenads are the immortal female followers of Dionysus, the god of ritual madness and ecstasy. Their name literally translates as raving ones. Often, the Maenads were portrayed as inspired by Dionysus into a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. In this state, they would lose all self-control, begin shouting excitedly, engage in uncontrolled and ritualistically hunt down.
