Morrígan

Profile

The Morrígan is a triple threat. What we mean is that she does everything with her sisters and BFFs, Badb and Macha, from painting their nails to predicting who will win a fistfight. When they aren't individually chasing people around a battlefield, these three make up a single supergoddess called The Morrígu. Even more than her sisters, the Morrígan is an expert mean girl. But prophecy and sexiness aren't her only superpowers. The Morrígan can transform her body into any animal (usually a crow), and she can also make herself look like anyone at any age. Think: Mystique. Turns out that sex and violence can be pretty persuasive. Unfortunately, being on her good side one time doesn't guarantee you a spot there for life. She's a finicky creature who changes her mind at the drop of a hat. So if you want to slay max dudes in battle, you'd better pray the Morrígan is in a favorable mood that day.
