There are storys about three goddesses of destiny throught different cultures. The Greeks called them Moirai, the Romans called them Parces and in Nordic folclore they were called the Norns. Of cause some details differentiate in each version, but what they do and what they are there for remains consistant. For my contribution I found myself inspired by the greek Moirai: The first one, Clotho, creates destny by spinning the thread of life from her Distaff. Lachesis is measuring each person live-thread with her measuring rod and decides about their fortune. Finally, the unavoidable Athropos cuts the thread and thereby ends the life. Also she chooses the manner of death each person expects. I decided that this three spooky ladys should have different ages, since they represent some specific part of life.
