GODDESSES OF WAR: The Morrigan

O Morrigan, we call your name
Across the dusty years.
You speak to us, of blood and lust. 

the most important moments from six of crows

  • matthias getting all uppity about whether or not his ghost would associate with kaz’s ghost
  • that childish “pay someone to pay someone to pay someone to pay someone” conversation
  • secret tree handshake
  • driving a fucking tank through a city street 
  • DRAGGING A FJERDAN BANNER BEHIND SAID TANK
  • “kaz, you creepy little genius”

 The Morrigan is a goddess of battle, strife, and fertility. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster cycle she also takes the form of an eel, a wolf and a cow. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries, although her association with cattle also suggests a role connected with fertility, wealth, and the land. 

Badhbh (Celtic goddess)

“Meaning crow, Badhbh was a war goddess who took the form of a bird.
She often caused fear and confusion among soldiers in order to move the tide of battle to her favoured side. Badhbh would also appear prior to a battle to foreshadow the extent of the carnage to come or to predict the death of a notable person. She would sometimes do this through wailing cries, leading to comparisons with the bean-sídhe (banshee)”
