We are three sisters known as the Fates, or the Moirae. We control the destiny of man and god alike. Klotho, meaning "spinner", spins the thread of life. Lachesis, meaning "caster of lots", measures the thread of life. Atropus. meaning "unbending", cuts the thread of life. It is unclear who our parents are. Some say we are the daughters of Erebus and Nyx, while others say we are the daughters of Zeus and Themis. While we are considered the most powerful of the gods, Zeus can change our decisions, and we can occasionally be manipulated.
