(Greek Deity) THE FATES

Also known as KERAS, MOIRAE, MOERAE

Daughters of Erebos and Nyx, the white-clad deciders of destiny. Clotho did the spinning of fate, Lachesis did the measuring and Atropos did the snipping.

Atropos was most feared and known as she who cannot be swayed, except she could be swayed, especially by alcohol. One time Apollo got her so drunk that she completely forgot to snip the thread of his friend Admetus, so their system isn't fool proof.

Zeus would stick his oar in too, over-riding decisions left, right and centre, so it's a good idea to get him onside, and generally avoiding uneccesary dangers wouldn't be a bad idea.

The Fates were in charge of the Keres, the dark winged bringers of doom who looked after nasty horrible deaths but often went freelance in a quest for nastier more horrible deaths.
