• “The origins of the Weird Sisters are lost in the mists of time. They are three of the Children of Oberon, classically beautiful women, going by the names of Luna, Phoebe and Selene. They are physically identical, except for their hair color, Luna’s being pure white, Phoebe’s strawberry-blonde and Seline’s the darkest black. The immortal Sisters’ motives and actions are constantly a mystery to whomever they come in contact with.”—The Gargoyles Encyclopedia: Weird Sisters, The, http://www.dracandros.com/Jebgarg/tge/sisters.htm, accessed February 13, 2003.
