In the mists of time, the Everines controlled the destiny of mankind, weaving the future with their magical golden thread. When the Everines started fighting among themselves and brought the world to the edge of chaos, the gods robbed them of their power. The Everines were cast to Earth where they could only foretell the future and not create it.
When Aunt Bridget, the former Supreme Everine, was thought to be dead, Fiona Crossley and her family inherited the house. Bridget was later discovered to have faked her death in order for Tara to fulfill her destiny as Supreme Everine.
