History: Tyche is an ancient immortal much like Ixion and Thanatos, patroness of luck (both bad and good), chance and fate. She does not remember of ever being mortal, and she speculates to have been born when universe was created, since she embodies destiny and chance. Whatever the truth be, this remains a mystery she guards jealously.
