  4. In the ancient days of Hayll, many millennia before the Purge, a trio of Black Widow sisters were known as the Fates. Extraordinarily gifted in the art of vision webs, the three earned some fame as reliable, if cryptic, soothsayers. Lachesis, the youngest, was known for visions pertaining to birth, new beginnings, change, growth, and advancement. The middle sister, Atropos, was known for her visions of vitality, luck, present circumstances, and relationships. Clotho, the eldest, was known for her visions of deaths, endings, and all things entropic. They took turns wandering the Twisted Kingdom for their revelations, with one sister always remaining behind in case some unforeseen turn required her to help her sisters find their way home.
  5.  
  6. Atropos and Clotho shared a vision once, and upon returning to Lachesis, they shared it with her. They had seen an order of the noblest of young Hayllians, come together to affect great change on the nation's landscape. Bound together by fate, this small group of prophesied youths would serve a Great Purpose, though neither sister could say what that purpose would be. When Lachesis consulted her own webs on the matter, she saw the herself and her sisters gathering the order of young nobles under auspicious signs, and she foresaw the order continuing onward for many generations under their divine calling. The sisters commenced searching for those that the webs seemed to suggest were favored, and the Spero Peccatorum order was established.
  7.  
  8. The youths who were originally chosen were less than a hundred years old, but rich of heart and each bore might ambition. Dubbing them the Voices, the Fates encouraged them to exist as a coterie, spending time with each other in reflection and meditation in hopes that their Great Purpose would be revealed. Each Voice was concerned with a different aspect of Hayllian life, and focused their meditation on this personal aspect. In the beginning, the order was something of an ascetic cult, the purest hearts of Hayll devoting themselves to searching for a better future for their nation. They were revered for their patriotism, their dedication, and their purity of heart. They even garnered a small retinue of keepers and benefactors who helped provide for them, so that those of the order could focus the entirety of their existence on seeking the Great Purpose.
  9.  
  10. Years passed, and no Great Purpose was revealed. The Fates did not worry, as they were accustomed to watching stories play out over millennia instead of seasons. When members of the order reached their five hundredth year, they were released from their service and another youth was initiated in their stead. Eventually, however, the Fates themselves returned to the Darkness. Though the order - whose name was gradually shorted to The Peccatori - was self-sustaining by then, there had been no sign of the prophesied purpose.
  11.  
  12. Years and lifetimes passed, and the purpose and character of the Peccatori slowly changed. Without the guiding hands of the Fates to keep them focused, the order descended into decadence and self-interest. It became a tremendous social boon to be inducted as one of the Voices, and once inducted, a Voice could expect to live out centuries being all but worshiped by their supplicants, sycophants, and would-be successors. While each Voice still nominally claims patronage over a certain portfolio of Hayllian concerns, they have long since ceased searching for the Great Purpose that was foretold.

  193.  
  194. Hello everyone!
  195.  
  196. Unless stated otherwise, most of these roles have negotiable aspects. If there is something you absolutely don't like, then speak with me about it. Most castes are negotiable, and jewels/age/faceclaims are completely up to the writer. I have general ideas and thoughts for each character, which I've listed under their notes. The notes are mainly inspiration for the characters, and not every aspect has to be included in the character sheet. My thought was that I would just like the characters to represent aspects of their myth stereotype.
  197.  
  198. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
