The Moirai were daughters and servants of Ananke, the primeval personification of destiny, who commanded every mortal and immortal being, and determined the fate of everyone. To ancient philosophers, the Moirae were three in number and it was belivied even mighty Zeus was subject to their decree. They are the inevitable weavers of destiny and they hold the fate of the universe in their hands.
During the events of Our Worlds at War, the Fates peer through the waters of the fount of yesterday and witnessed once again Imperiex, the destroyer of worlds, who came to this universe to extinguish it and ignite anew. They saw Diana, the former princess of the Amazons of Paradise Island allied with the greatest heroes of this universe, and its most wretched villains. The Moirae felt the fires of anger burn Diana's heart. Not just for Imperiex, but for Darkseid, the evil new god who was once responsible for decimating the paradise island and killing nearly half of the Amaons. The daughters of Inevitability have watched Earth, Apokolips, home of Darkseid and hidden to all but by futuristic sciences, and Warworld.
With the help of Wonder Woman, Superman and Green Lantern shatter Imperiex's body, dissipating his energy, but the twine of fate was long and Clotho knew that this was not the end. From threads of the past and the future, Lachesis tailors the fates of the allied warriors against Brainiac 13. From science, from magic, from alien worlds and beyond, Lachesis braids and knits the strands of Destiny, uniting the most powerful heroes of this Earth or any other as they attack warworld directly, while watching the flames of Apokolips' firepits burn low and fade. The inevitable weavers of destiny, the mothers and sisters of the sinless preordination, silently watched the arrival of the isle of Themyscira into the universe of chaos, amidst the wreckage of war. Atropos has pulled on her tailored thread. The cord was long and not ready to be sheared. Destiny had other plans for these Amazons.
In Prime Earth, the Moirai and the Norns are the same beings. They also have other names like Urd, Verdandi and Skuld. Alternative versions of the Moirai known as Dark Fates exist in the Dark Multiverse.
