I’m so glad she’s not dead. All three of her.
Quite how I didn’t see there being three whole aspects to the Morrigan I don’t know, but of course it had to be this way. We have Badb, Anann (Gentle Annie) and what I’m therefore presuming is Macha, daughter of Ernmas.
Between them we cover three flavours of goth; Badb’s angry, punk-inflected goth, Macha’s more romantic goth (digging the whole neck ruff), and then a more perky goth with Anann (shades of the Endless’ Delirium in her). Interesting what’s retained through each (cheek stud piercings, right arm crow tats) and what changes sharply (hair, eye makeup). All glorious design work, of course.
Much as the apparent division here seems to be Badb=nasty&vengeful, Macha=cooler,dispassionate and Anann= empathetic, I wouldn’t be taken in by Anann. All the Morrigan is a goddess of war and death, and the whole “Gentle Annie” thing is more about tiptoeing around death goddess ego then it is a reflection on her actual outlook.
I am geeking out so much about this depiction of The Morrigan - as if I wasn’t already completely obsessed with The Wicked + The Divine - they go and give us this :-)
