The Fates

Greek Mythology

Name: The Fates
Domain: The Goddesses of Destiny


The three Fates; Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, decided the destiny of men. Clotho would spin the thread of life. Lachesis chose a mans lot in life, and measured how long it would be. Atropos would cut the thread of life with her shears. The Fates pre-date the gods. It was possible that they even chose the fate of the gods themselves.
