The Morrigan is actually a trio of goddesses who are most often associated with battle. Often they’re seen in the form of a crow or a raven near the battlefield. There are a surprising number of stories in which she comes to a battlefield and decides the fate of the armies.
The Celts believed that, as they engaged in warfare, the Morrigan flew shrieking overhead in the form of a raven or carrion crow, summoning a host of slain soldiers to a macabre spectral bane.
Her role in Celtic legend is similar to that of the Valkyries in Norse folklore in that both used magic to cast fetters on warriors and made the decision regarding who would live and who would die
