Hecate[Footnote 1] is a greek goddess of crossroads (particularly triple), witchcraft, and herbalism.


A preolympian goddess of the underworld, Hecate[Footnote 1] is by extension associated with death and the night. She is often depicted as threefold,[Footnote 2] and as such it extends her protection to womanhood. She has often been conflated with the moon goddess Diana.[Footnote 3]

Main article: Skin Game

In Skin Game, Harry Dresden recognizes two groups of three golden statues in Hades' Vault as representation of her.[1] Further, Hades mentions she has led Demeter around, as a wedding gift to him and Persephone, so they could enjoy a honeymoon without Demeter's cumbersome presence.[2]
