Case File: The Morrígan vs. Cúchulainn

Police Reports

Case Description: The claimant (Cúchulainn) has accused the defendant (the Morrígan) of assault. He claims she took on three different animal forms—a white cow with red ears, a black eel, and a grey wolf—and tried to kill him.

Case Status: Both parties have agreed to drop the case. Cúchulainn broke the Morrígan's ribs and her leg and poked out one of her eyes during the attack. She later appeared to him in a different form and offered him three drinks, which he accepted, and all of her wounds were healed. They have not had any disagreements since.
