Also called the Moirai, the Fates were three personifications of destiny who controlled the 'life threads' of every mortal:
- Clotho spun the threads of life
- Lachesis decided how long a person's thread of life would be.
- Atropos, when it was time for a person to die, used her shears to cut that person's thread.
Though they make no physical appearances in the series, they are briefly mentioned a few times throughout.
