Greek Destiny Goddess

Also known as ATTROPUS

Cut! She is the goddess of fateful snips

The oldest of the three FATES, she’s the one who cuts the Thread of Life with her fatal scissors. These are always razor-sharp and there’s no danger of split-ends.

It may be possible to tie the ends back together but we don’t think anyone has ever tried it.

Her Roman name is MORTA, which sounds far more fitting.
