A caterpillar's fate is metamorphosis -- the seemingly magical transformation from a sedentary creature to an aerial one. The Caterpillar's Fate pattern language is used to guide the transformation of a system from the analysis stage into the design stage -- which has also been viewed by many as a magical transformation.
