The Sisters are very loyal to Zeus and they want Kratos to prevent time travel into the Great War not long after Zeus murdered him after stripping him from Kratos' powers. When Kratos revives himself by escaping from Hades, the Sisters became hellbent to prevent him from using Loom of Fate as they believed that using it would destroy the world.
At first, Lahkesis confronted Kratos alone. When bested by Kratos, Lahkesis summoned her sister Atropos from within a mirror. Atropos carried Kratos through the mirror, back in time, to the final fight between Kratos and Ares. She threatened to kill Kratos' past self by destroying the Blade of the Gods - without it, Ares would triumph over the Spartan, and the Kratos fighting the Sisters would retroactively be erased from existence. Kratos protected the sword and defeated Atropos, thereby hurling him back to Lahkesis' throne room. Desperate, Lahkesis and Atropos fought Kratos together. He defeated them by throwing them into one of their inter-dimensional mirrors and shattering it, thereby imprisoning them.
The final sister, the hideously deformed Clotho, awaited Kratos in the Loom Chamber beyond. While Kratos made his way to her head, he disabled five of her smaller arms blocking his way up. Once at the top level, he disabled her two main arms, giving him time to bring up a giant swinging blade. With this blade, he impaled Clotho through her head, killing the last of the Sisters of Fate and finally granting himself the power to change the past and control time.
In Greek Mythology
Referred to in Mythology as the Moirai, or the Fates; Clotho, Lahkesis, and Atropos, were the daughters of Erebus and Nyx.
As the three Sisters of Fate, Lahkesis, Atropos, and Clotho, determined the fates of every mortal, God, and Titan. Clotho weaved the Threads of Fate, beginning all lives. Lahkesis embellished the threads, which decided the events that would occur in every being's life. Finally, Atropos cut the threads, ending a life. The Fates held power over even divine entities, such as Zeus or Gaia. Consistent with the games, mythology said that the powers of the Fates was absolute, even for Zeus and the Titans. Though there are several references made to the possibility of Zeus changing Fate, he does not.
Their Roman Equivalent are the Parcae.
- Based on the deities of Greek mythology.
- Sisters of Thanatos, personification of death & Hypnos, personification of sleep.
