Nona (Clotho for the Greeks) spins the thread of life, Decima (Lachesis) measures its duration, and Morta (Atropos), implacable, cuts it. These goddesses of destiny, called Fates or Fates in Latin, weave the destiny of each living being according to the decrees of the gods. Nona, the spinner, represents the beginnings, Decima, the measurement, determines the key moments, and Morta, the cup, signifies the inevitable end. They embody human destiny, shaping the course of lives from birth to death. No being, mortal or divine, can escape their inexorable influence, symbolizing the inescapable and predestined nature of life.

Cerberus , a Greek mythological creature, is a three-headed dog with a serpentine mane and a serpentine tail. He is the guardian of the Underworld, ensuring that souls do not leave the realm of the dead. Posted at the entrance, Cerberus prevents unauthorized intrusions, but allows entry to the deceased. His fierce nature and loyalty to Hades make him a formidable figure. In mythology, the hero Heracles successfully appeased Cerberus to complete one of his twelve tasks, showing his mastery over the infernal forces. Cerberus embodies the boundary between life and death, symbolizing relentless vigilance at the entrance to the realm of shadows.

The emergence of occult weapons dates back to the first human beliefs, and it is common to find, among ancient pre-Columbian civilizations as well as in the Shang civilization, ritual knives made of flint, gold or jade. Gallic warriors, under the command of Vercingetorix, believed that their swords should be infused with a victim's blood in order to capture their life energy, thus transforming the blade into an "animate" object. Witches in the Middle Ages used the arthame, a magic knife, to carry out mysterious operations.
There is no doubt that the mysterious daggers of the Romantic era had a special purpose, for even today they continue to play an important role in the initiation rituals of certain secret societies and in strange black mass ceremonies.
