Badb  the Celtic goddess of war. With a mortal man, she gave birth to the demi-goddess Morrigan. She also has a granddaughter, Brigid (daughter of Morrigan and Celtic god Kernunnos).

MythologyEdit

In Irish mythology, Badb is a goddess of war who could be transformed into a "crow". It is sometimes called Badb Catha ("Raven of War"). It is said that it can also acquire the form of a wolf

To control the course of the battle, Badb caused confusion in the soldiers to lead to a favorable outcome to their wishes.

Together with his sisters Morrigan and Macha he forms a triad of goddesses of war. Other versions say that Macha and Badb are personifications of the same Morrigan, or simply names given to her.
