Three monsters born from the Titans Ceto and Phorcys like the Gorgons. These ancient Greek creatures were gentle hags with long grey hair and one tooth and eye that they shared. The hero Perseus on his way to slay the Gorgons found the Graeae who knew the whereabouts of the Gorgons. Perseus dexterously intercepted the eye as it was passed between them and bribed them to tell him where the lair of the Gorgons could be found. In Norse mythology the Graeae are mentioned but they have the role of the Norns that spin the threads of human fate.
