Case File: The Fates vs. Apollo

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (the Fates) accuse defendant (Apollo) of coercion. It seems the god of light got the three sisters drunk and convinced them to allow Admetus to trade places with another mortal when the time came for his death. The Moirae claim that Apollo illegally coerced them into going against their strict ethical code of never changing anyone's fate.

Case Status: Case dismissed. The situation resolved itself pretty nicely. Admetus' wife Alcestis took his place in death, and eventually Heracles wrestled Thanatos and got her back.
