The Morrigan was predominantly a Goddess of War and Death, the fearsome Phantom Queen! She was also the Goddess of Prophecy and Fate, and saw the future of all things, including the end of the world. She was all-knowing, and would share her knowledge of the future for a price. Her prophecies were always true and her wordings were exact, if somewhat of a riddle. She was an aspect of Royalty and Warriors and like the Raven, the Morrigan can always be found present on the battlefield. She is known to cause fear and confusion among soldiers to move the tide of battle to her favoured side.
As a shapeshifter who took many guises; she would often appear in multiple forms throughout a story. Most common of these forms - were a shapely maiden, a battle ready warrior-queen, an old crone, and, of course, a raven. While she could take the form of other animals beyond a raven, the Morrigan did so less frequently.
Her appearances at the deaths of prominent figures have caused scholars to link her to spirits appearing later in Irish folklore, such as the Banshee, or “fairy woman.”
