Chrono Fusion: Atropos 02 Picture

Original completion date unknown (2005?).

A sketch of a villain in an old RPG project of mine, Chrono Fusion. It was a sequel to Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross.

The party members included Spike, Lachesis, Janet, Prometheus (Theo), Rex (a Reptite), Hanneko (a demi-human), and Kassam.

The villains included a mysterious man named Cain who was hunting Spike for some reason along with Clotho and Atropos.

I only ever drew a few of them, though.


The Fates are literally the three Fates from Chrono Cross given human form by FATE (just like how Wazuki was turned into Lynx by FATE). Genetic manipulation and all that. They protected Chronopolis from invaders in the game, so their purpose is to protect the FATE computer and, consequentially, the world by preserving the timeline in which Lavos is defeated (the Chrono Compendium calls it the "Ideal Timeline"). Since FATE pretty much created life on El Nido, the three Fates consider themselves the guardians/protectors of the people. So in their own perspectives, they're heroines. Their methods, however, are cold and brutal, so in reality they're far from the pure goddesses they make themselves out to be. They are still computer-created lifeforms with inhuman personalities. At least, Clotho and Atropos are.

Remember, FATE was built from the remainders of Mother Brain, so FATE is considered a "female" AI in my story. FATE considers the Moirae Sisters as her daughters. Atropos is literally Atropos XR from CT, built into the FATE system as Mother Brain and Robo were also assimilated. (As you'll recall, Robo's real name is Prometheus, and the Prometheus Circuit was a part of the FATE computer....)

Atropos has an extremely sadistic, violent personality (mythological Atropos "cuts" the thread of life), but some remnants of the time she spent with Robo remains within her. She can't remember Prometheus, so she has epic freakouts whenever she's around him and she doesn't know why. She also carries around the green ribbon she once loaned him, but she doesn't remember where she got it or why it's so important to her. In other words, after becoming a Fate sister, she can't remember her life thanks to the FATE computer wiping her mind.
