Clotho is a priestess who works at the library in Velaris.
Long before Feyre entered Prythian, Clotho was injured badly by a group of males. They cut out her tongue, and smashed her hand for entertainment and to ensure that Clotho couldn't inform anyone about who hurt her. They further healed her while hurting her to ensure that the damage was permanent.
She was later found by Morrigan, who brought her to meet Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court. Rhys allowed Mor to hunt the males, and presumably kill them. After this, Mor stayed in the library with Clotho and helped her to heal. Though due to the nature of the injuries inflicted, her hand was healed a little, but most of the damage was permanent. Due to this, Clotho is incapable of speech.
Feyre and Rhysand visit the library in Velaris to gain information on how to repair the Wall. Clotho greets the pair and leads them into the library, and to a reading area. She leaves them in the library to search for information.
Clotho aides Feyre by searching for information in the later weeks. Later, Nesta and Feyre browse the library and are attacked by the King of Hybern's Ravens. Clotho rings the spelled bell inside the library to alert other Night Court citizens about the threat. In response to the warning, Cassian enters the library to help Feyre and Nesta.
Clotho is slim in appearance. While meeting Feyre, she wears pale robes and a hood with a crown of limpid blue stones, identifying her as a priestess.
