Hecate's the daughter of the Titans Crius and Eurybia, and her power's almost as great as theirs ever was. She's famed far and wide for her cutting wit and great eloquence (chant is she taught Apollo some of his craft), but she's even more famous for her skill in magic. Fact is, she's worshipped by all nonpriest spellslingers who follow the pantheon, for she's the source of all wizardly magic.

She's also one of the few powers who maintains a primary realm in one plane (the Gray Waste) and another somewhere else (Baator), but it's completely dark as to why. Perhaps she draws her power from both plane and uses it to feed her worshippers. Whatever the truth, Hecate's a power to be reckoned with, as sly as a serpent and as dangerous as a starving wolf. She sets plans in motion that few can detect, and she plays heroes like lyres.

She has a history with Loki, but Hecate has no real allies among the powers, with the exception of Persephone (Hades' wife). Apollo still respects her, but no longer seeks her company. The other Olympian powers come to her for advice from time to time, but don't associate with her more than they can help.
