Macha (Ch like in loch, the way the Scots pronounce it.) the Red; a Morrighan (Moree-un) sister. (Nemain (Nemawn) and Badb (Baeve) are the other two.) Irish war goddess. Part time crow. Real cool. One of my main characters, too. There's lots of legends about her. She could outrun a horse, and when she tried life as a housewife and her silly husband told the king his wife could outrun his horse, the king demanded to be shown, even though she was preggers with twins. She won the race, had the twins right after, and cursed Ulster so the men would feel the pains of childbirth during battle for a set number of generations.
According to some legends, the twins died, according to others, Macha killed them. That was the first and last time she did anything that stupid in the mortal world, but I guess even members of the Tuatha de Danaan made their impulsive dumb mistakes in order to evolve. (Yes, I'm being sarcastic. They were a rowdy bunch. Major, volatile party animals. But what's it to you when life and death are the same.)
Why don't I summon them? I'm sure they have better things to do than visit me just because I'm there. It can wait. I'd just be wasting their resources, now. If they want to see me, they've got an open invitation, but I'm not going to make a nuisance of myself. The last thing I need is to risk a Gatekeeper telling me to "Get a life."
