The Fated

Help Yourself…

‘Cos I ain’t going to lift a finger to aid you. So think the Fated, called ‘the Heartless’ by many. But they’re not all evil; far from it. You’d not call the plane of Bytopia evil now, would you, and locals there have a very similar attitude —don’t rely on charity, because it’s fickle. Strive to do things your way, and make others depend on you, so you can call in the favours later. Be generous by all means, but remember that all debts have to be paid in the end.

Cutters in Sigil fear the Fated as much, if not more than, the Mercykillers. See, the Fated have this knack of remembering things they’re owed, and finding ways to take as much of their share as possible. Default on a loan repayment? Better not answer the door when the Fated come knocking to collect it.

On the Prime, they have a saying: “Elephants never forget”. Who knows what that’s supposed to mean, but in Sigil, they say something else: “A Taker Never Forgets”. And better believe it’s true.

“What’s mine is mine.
What’s yours is mine too,
unless you take proper precautions.”

Coteries

“There are two kinds of Fated. The first are those that argue that since they’ve worked hard for something, they deserve it. These kinds don’t believe in luck or fortune, and they strive to be independent.

“The second kind, like myself, argues that if they’ve taken something, that act clearly shows that they’ve earned what they’ve taken. We tend to be a bit more ruthless, but hey, who’s counting?”
