|Nymeia appears to be closely associated with the one of the Three Fates, Clotho, and her equivalent in Roman mythology, Nona.
Nymeia is depicted as the "younger sister," a weaver of fate, donning a veil of white. Clotho, which literally means "spinner," was the youngest of the three sisters of Fate, and spun the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle. Her thread represented human life and her decisions represented the fate of all men in society. In some mythological tales, Clotho is believed to be the daughter of Uranus and Gaea, making her the sister of Saturn. Since Althyk, elder brother of Nymeia, appears closely associated with Saturn himself, this sibling connection is also preserved.
During early stages of the beta test, Nymeia was originally associated with the Ninth Month of the Eorzean calendar. This is significant because Nona, the Roman version of Clotho, was also referred to as "the Ninth" and called upon during a woman's ninth month of pregnancy.
