He turned on the luna rea one too many times. Every time, it gets harder to turn back. Your body and your mind don't know what phase they're in. You fall apart mentally and physically. You've already started. It's the distrugere.
— Destiny to Peter [src]

Destiny Rumancek is a Romani witch and con-artist, who makes her living as a psychic medium and sex worker. She was a regular character in the first season and main character in the second season of Hemlock Grove. Destiny is the daughter of Vince Rumancek, granddaughter of the old Nicolae Rumancek, niece of Lynda Rumancek and older cousin of the werewolf Peter Rumancek.

Throughout the series, this character turns out to be very confident and protective of her family, especially her cousin, Peter.

Early lifeEdit

Destiny lived in Hemlock Grove long before Peter and his mother moved to the town. There, she worked as a waitress, psychic and con artist. However, before she had moved to Hemlock Grove, eighteen years ago, Destiny's family shared a campsite in U.P. with another family—one member of which being Andreas Vasilescu. Both of their fathers worked cutting trees in the summer of 1996, and he used to watch her swim in a creek. He also used to give her free ice cream.

Throughout the SeriesEdit


Destiny is sassy, funny and shameless young woman. She has a strong personality and is very uninhibited. Also has a slight twisted dark humour. She is very protective, especially when it involves her family.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Destiny is a very attractive young woman with an oval face, light olive complexion, almond-shaped hazel eyes.



  • Peter Rumancek: Ever since we first encounter Destiny Rumancek, she undoubtedly shows her love and concern for Peter. Throughout season one, she is shown to help him at all costs, and it shows even more in season two.

  • Lynda Rumancek: Just as she shows her love and concern for Peter, she does the same for Lynda, Peter's mother. From this, you can see she is very much tied to her family.

  • Roman Godfrey: When Roman first meets Destiny, she knows exactly what he is. She feels an extreme discomfort when he is around, yet is willing to help him due to Peter's wishes. Destiny also seems to feel bad for Roman, who doesn't realize what he is quite yet.
