Talk about identity issues. Other accounts include Nemain, a fairy spirit of havoc, her sister Fea, and Anand, the goddess personification of death.The Morrigan mythos seems to date back to the cult of the Matrones, often depicted via their cult through ecstasy in fighting. As a Goddess of war, and therefore life and death, she had a habit to app
