Fate-favored is a term used to describe someone who has been ascribed a fate. In the Carve the Mark universe those people are Cyra Noavek, Ryzek Noavek, Cisi Kereseth, Eijeh Kereseth, Akos Kereseth, Orieve Benesit, and Isae Benesit. There are likely others, on other nation-planets, though their names are not known.

An entire family can similarly be called “fate-favored.” The Noaveks, the Kereseths, and the Benesits.
