Morrigan is one of the great Goddesses of Ireland and is a multifaceted character in mythology. Portrayed as the Fearless Celtic Goddess of War, she is both one goddess called Morrigan and a trinity of sisters known as The Morrigan or The Morrigu.

As three sisters The Morrigan controlled the three aspects of war. Fate, havoc, and fear were controlled by Badb, Nemain and Macha respectively. They were shapeshifters and had control over life and death. They rarely fought directly in wars but would fly over the battlefield as an omen of death in the form of a crow, striking fear in the minds of those who saw them.

In the ancient world, she appeared in many animal forms. Furthermore, she was a shape-shifter known for being a goddess of war and battle, the cycle of life and death, wisdom and prophecy, magic, and the land.

The Celtic Goddess Morrigan represented the circle of life and was associated with both birth and death. She is also described as being the patroness of revenge, magic, priestesses, night, prophecy and witches
