The Morrighan. Also known as the Morrigu, the shape-shifting Celtic Goddess of War, Fate and Death. She also presided over rivers, lakes, fresh water, in addition to being the patroness of revenge, night, magic, prophecy, priestesses and witches.

A fierce warrior herself, Morrigan is goddess of death in battle, slaughter, and strife. She protects the innocent, and brings justice to those who have done wrong. She can take on several forms, including that of a bat, that of a crow and that of Macha – the embodiment of frenzy. Morrigan is queen beside Arawn, and she oversees the Phantom Hunt.
