Samyutta Nikaya's Māra-saṃyutta,Mara's three daughters fail to entice the Buddha:

    They had come to him glittering with beauty —
    Taṇhā, Arati, and Rāga
    But the Teacher swept them away right there
    As the wind, a fallen cotton tuft.

Some stories refer to the existence of Five Daughters, who represent the Three Poisons, Attraction, Aversion and Delusion, accompanied additionally by Pride and Fear.

Māra Samyutta. The fourth section of the Samyutta Nikāya. S.i.103 27.
