The Moirae are the fates in Greek mythology. They were responsible for spinning, measuring, and cutting the thread of life for each living being. No one, not even the gods, could escape the destiny that they wrote. Oedipus tried to escape his destiny, that of killing his father and wedding his mother, but by doing so fulfilled it.

The Moirae are:
Clotho --> Spins life's thread
Lachesis --> Measures life's thread
Atropos --> Cuts life's thread
