The Moirae are the three sisters who decide human fate. They are the daughters of Themis, the Greek goddess of justice, and Archon, the head god of the Atlantean pantheon, and the half sisters of Apostolos. Lachesis sings of the things that were, Clotho those that are, and Atropos the things that are to be. Of the three, Atropos is the smallest in stature, but the most terrible and feared. The oldest sister, Atropos (Atty) is the most feared and the meanest. She’s the one who determines when someone dies... even the gods. Clotho (Cloie) is the spinner of our lives. She’s the one who decides how they unfold as they unfold. Lachesis (Lacy) then measures the life. She will hold the thread of life out to Atty, who then snips it when she’s ready for it to end.
There is a hot debate on who is more powerful, the Fates or Zeus. It’s been argued that he tells them when to end a life and they merely serve his whims. But they created the Final Fate, who is indeed the most powerful of the group. Out of jealousy that their unborn brother Apostolos would be more loved by Archon, the Fates accidentally cursed him when they were young, scared girls. They are the reasons why his life sucked for thousands of years until he met the love of his life Soteria Kafieri.
