The Morrígan, or “Phantom Queen,” was a fearsome Celtic deity and Irish goddess of death and battle. A trio of sisters who appeared as a crow, she was the keeper of fate and purveyor of prophecy.

SFA, here is a part I found intriguing; "The battle quickly turned into a bloodbath. The Morrígan’s grandfather Nuada was slain, and her husband the Dagda was mortally wounded. At last the Morrígan joined the fray, ending the battle with her prowess and a poem. The Fomorions fled from her and perished in the sea."

This reminds me of Hindu mythology, where the goddesses were always called in to save the day after the male gods had failed to get a battle against some demons under control.

...and like Tink, I like Athena also...she not only handled war, but took care of wisdom as well...
