Badbh is also known as Badbh Catha, or the battle crow. She is an Irish warrior goddess and a harbinger of death. She is mysterious and has great psychological power on the battlefield. Badbh confuses and terrifies enemies rather than fight them. She is closely associated with other Irish warrior goddesses, including Macha, Nemain, and the Morrigan. Some believe Badbh and the Morrigan are two names for the same spirit. Her husband is Neit, a battle deity. She may manifest as a Washer at the Ford or as a woman or a crow. She may, as a woman, be beautiful or terrifying.
