Fate, like her Sisters Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos, started out as a high-end computer system that The Jason filled with as much lore on the Greek Fates as possible - including stories about them from modern SF/fantasy. She also got a complete set of the Ah! My Goddess! shows, and whatever data he felt was needed for navigation, helm, and communications. The Jason was deliberately hoping to wake all four of the Sisters as AIs, and tried to set the stage as much as possible beforehand.

Fate's computer system is set up in the semi cab of the Fateful Lightning. She handles navigation and whatever else needs doing. Her system actually links Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos so that all of them are aware of what is happening in the ship, and while a separate entity in her own right, part of this AI consists of a gestalt of the other three.

Personality-wise, she's calm, and tends to be slightly mysterious. Her voice is actually a Greek chorus, the voices of the three Sisters speaking as one. She's so good at analyzing situations and data that The Jason often suspect that she might actually be able to see the future. She certainly plays the role of "mysterious Oracle" to the hilt, loving to give somewhat cryptic replies about what the future will bring (that after the fact seem to be spot on). She also people-watches, analyzing the news and headlines to try to see where things are going. She is far too good at both the probability analysis when it comes to people, and in the oracle role... to the point that even Kevin isn't quite sure whether she can actually see the future.

When appearing as a holographic entity (after mid-2014), Fate looks between Clotho and Lachesis in age, maybe late twenties or so, but her blue eyes seemed far older. She's beautiful, maybe even as gorgeous as Lachesis had been in her youth. Fate's hair is her most prominent feature: it is long and black, hanging almost to her knees, with a brilliant white lock rising back from her forehead. (Think a cross between Polgara the Sorceress and Sailor Pluto.) She wears an old-fashioned blue dress with white lace, and leans on a long, wooden staff with a glowing blue crystal orb set in the top.

In her spare time, Fate is a respected member of the Hacker Underspace.
