Fortuna descended upon the Er'ther Lands via the comet that collided with the planet over 1,000 years ago and brought with it Lens, though she arrived in an incomplete state. Over time, she managed to create Elrane and Reala for the sake of fashioning a perfect world, feeding off the despair left behind by the events in the original Tales of Destiny, which occurred 18 years prior. In the tampered timeline of Destiny 2, Elrane recreates the comet as Fortuna's "egg" to once again birth herself into the world, though this time in a perfect state. Fortuna's true origin is unknown, and though she possesses powers perhaps fitting of a goddess, she is actually nothing more than a super-powered alien descended from elsewhere in the galaxy. It is also unknown whether or not Fortuna herself arrived with the comet by her own design or some mistake; regardless, Elrane uses this fact as a means of translating to the public that Fortuna brought Lens to the world and is to be thanked for its blessing.
