Morrigan is the fierce goddess of war and seductress from Celtic mythology who could morph into an eel, a heifer, a wolf, or, most often a raven, the omen of dread. Spurned by the Celtic warrior, Cuchulainn, his rejection precursed the trap of slow, deliberate revenge—the dish best served cold. She then appeared as the raven and foretold his impending death in combat. The myth describes her having flaming red hair and being dressed in a red cloak, intent on the imposition of wrath. She is the inspiration for the protagonist within.
