Character description

Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/; Greek: Κλωθώ) is a mythological figure. She is the youngest of the Three Fates or Moirai who spin the thread of Life; the other two draw out (Lachesis) and cut (Atropos) in ancient Greek mythology. Her Roman equivalent is Nona. Clotho was responsible for spinning the thread of human life. She also made major decisions, such as when a person was born, thus in effect controlling people's lives. This power enabled her not only to choose who was born, but also to decide when gods or mortals were to be saved or put to death. For example, Clotho brought Pelops back to life when his father boiled and killed him. [Wikipedia]
