First Appearance

October 2012

Roster

Adam Destine

The leader. Adam is a fear-inducing man who doesn't hesitate to strike back when he sees himself or his family being wronged. Practices urban magic. Was responsible, along with Albert, for killing Alice Ashdown after her husband killed their brother.

Grace Destine

Grace is a surprisingly gentle young woman, making her association with the other Destines something of a surprise. She's fiercely loyal to the family, however, and won't hesitate to attack anyone who threatens them. Draws magic from her amulet. Died in 2018 due to a combination of poorly used blood magic and Wanda Maximoff's powers.


PB: Gina Carano, socked by Zoila

Albert Destine

Like Grace, Albert draws his magic from an amulet. He was present when Luca Ashdown killed his brother, and worked with Adam to kill Alice. Killed in 2018 by Taboo when he tried to use the Destines to bring his wife back from the dead.

PB: Jim Parrack, socked by AJ

Jasmine Destine

The healer in the family. Jasmine is the youngest of the clan, and tends to stay in the background during fights, as her magic doesn't lend itself well to offense. She draws her power off the earth. She's currently on the run after calling the mansion to help them rescue Topaz, essentially betraying her siblings.

Dominic Destine - deceased

Dominic uses magic to create illusions, drawing mostly on his own life energy. It was he who tracked Luca down after Nathaniel was killed, and he spent a few weeks surveying Luca, Alice, and Topaz in order to find out more about them and their schedule before Adam and Albert went in. He was killed by a combination of Albert and Topaz in the midst of the third fight between Taboo and Topaz and the Destines.

  • Nathaniel Destine - Killed by Luca Ashdown in 2011. His death was the start of the war between Luca and the Destines (this was unknown at the time).

Details

Phase 1

Following the disbandment of Rack's coven, the Destines went underground for a time before resurfacing and making a name for themselves among the magical community. They were heavy handed in their tactics - Adam especially - and didn't mind resorting to killing if it meant getting what they wanted.

In 2011, Nathaniel and Albert were out for the night, and came across an older man. They decided to mug him for fun, not realizing that he was also a magic user, like them. The mugging resulted in Nathaniel's death, but Albert managed to escape back to the family and inform them what had happened. They tracked down the would-be victim - Luca Ashdown - and killed his wife in retaliation for Nathaniel's death.

In October 2012, Luca and Topaz - after over a year of meticulous planning - struck back against the Destines, intent on killing Adam first and then taking the rest down. The original plan failed, and this led to a series of attacks in which Dominic was eventually killed when Topaz manipulated one of Albert's spells to hit Dominic instead of Luca.

Following the final attack the remaining Destines - Adam, Albert, Grace, and Jasmine - disappeared before they could be apprehended, and the house they'd been living in was leveled. Their whereabouts are currently unknown. They continue, however, to be a point of contention despite their absence - in June 2013, Taboo attempted to sell Topaz in order to garner information on where they were hiding.

Phase 2

The Destines came back to haunt Topaz in February 2018, after being hired by someone on the Winding Way to kidnap her. They went along eagerly, hoping it would earn them more favor and power, and to get a chance at finishing the fight Taboo had started years earlier.

It turned out to be a trick, however, when the Way double-crossed them and delivered them to Taboo in order to be used as sacrifices to bring his wife back from the dead. Albert was killed, but a rescue party from the mansion broke into the scene before anyone else could be hurt, and the Destines broke free. Amanda forced Grace to take her brother and sister to retreat before Adam could kill Taboo and go after Topaz, and the family disappeared again, another sibling short.

The remaining siblings tried to get their revenge in July 2018 by attacking the mansion, targeting and cursing individuals and nearly killing Amanda to lure Topaz out. She turned herself over to protect the mansion, and Adam and Grace had a couple of days of fun torturing her before Jasmine had a crisis of conscience and sold them out to the mansion. Grace was killed in the ensuing fight, Adam's eye was taken out by Marie-Ange Colbert, and Jasmine disappeared to avoid her brother's wrath.
