----Morrígan---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A complex figure from Irish mythology, who rules over war, sovereignty, fertility, earth and rivers.
She can either be represented as a single entity named Morrígan, or as a triad of goddesses, all
sisters, who holds the title. The trio is usually composed of Badb, Macha and Nemain, supposedly
granddaughters of Nuadha, first king of the Irish pantheon, the Tuatha Dé Danann, but variations
are plentiful. While not evil per se, she is certainly ominous and feared, as disrespect towards
her usually ends in death. A shapeshifter, Morrígan is related to figures like banshees for her role
in heralding bad omens and deaths, and fittingly, the crow is her favorite animal, of whom the form
she usually takes.
The hero Cú Chulainn meets her several times in his legend. In his first encounter with her, she
takes the form of a red-haired and red-cloaked woman whom he insults, not realizing who she truly
is. He apologizes, but she says he would be cursed either way, prophetizes his death in a battle
in the near future and promises him "it is at the guarding of thy death that I am; and I shall be.".
Later, when queen Medb tries to steal the bull Donn Cuailnge from Ulster, Morrígan appears to it as
a crow and warns it to flee. Cú Chulainn fights the war to protect the bull, and meets her between
battles in the form of a young maiden who offers him her love and aid in battle, but he rejects it
to her anger. She tries to intervene in the battle using the form of a wolf, an eel and a heifer,
but is wounded by the hero all three times and fails to take him down. He then encounters her as
an old woman bearing the three wounds, who offers him three drinks of milk. He blesses her for each
drink, but instantly regrets as it heals her wounds immediately. As the final battle begins, she
prophetizes bloodshed.
Cú Chulainn then meets his end, tying himself to a standing stone with his entrails so he
can die upright, and as promised, there was Morrígan as a crow accompanying him at the moment of his
death.

So, she is one, who is also three. The main problem was to come up with an design to represent that,
the rest is pretty straight forward. I imagine the three sisters ( Who I'm naming Badb, Macha and Nemain
by the way ) being able to separate into individuals by exiting the cloak-hair, or becoming a single
entity again by disappearing under it.

My main concern is if she looks too evil-like, which she really isn't... Just really creepy.

This was originally a request by ManaMadeleine, who wanted more celtic figures. Suggestions are always
