- "The Cult of Kosmos will burn the old world to ashes and build anew."
Iokaste was practically unknown before joining the Cult of Kosmos. Afterwards, she swore allegiance to Kosmos, and over the course of years, rose to lead her own branch of the cult, gaining the epithets The God's Breath and The Mystic Sage. With her status, Iokaste controlled the Oracle of Delphi, deeming the prophecies she should utter, as well as several religious rites in order to serve the Cult of Kosmos, its goals and its deity. Iokaste also instructed Chrysis, the Argive priestess of Hera, and a member of Iokaste's branch, to abduct the Spartan baby Alexios, and raise him as a soldier of Kosmos.
At some point around the time of the Peloponnesian War, Iokaste withdrew from contact with the members of her branch. Before she did, however, she sent a letter to Melite, a man of her branch, commending him on his obedience for killing his underlings as a sacrifice, and ordering him to go to Pephka.
