"Fate is what the weak name their cowardice. The strong craft their own future."
―Mórrígan[src]-[m]

The Morrígan or Mórrígan (Isu: IsuScript - Morrigan.png), was an Isu who later became known as the Irish goddess associated with war, fated doom, and either death or victory in battle.[1]

Mythology

A shapeshifting goddess, Morrigan was known to take the form of a wolf, among others.[1] In Arthurian legend, it was said she was the cause of Merlin's ruination.[2]

Influence

Within the Isu structure beneath Stonehenge, several steles engraved with mysterious quotes were discovered by the Viking shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir as she recovered the Sword of Eden Excalibur during the 870s. Also in this time, Eivor obtained an Isu shield named after her.[3]

In 1752, the Colonial Assassin Shay Cormac repossessed a British Navy sloop-of-war and named it after the goddess.[2] Upon defecting to the Colonial Templars,[4] Shay recaptured the Morrigan from the Assassins[5] and redecorated its sails and finery in imagery that featured wolves.[6]

By 2020, the modern day Assassins were able to decipher the script beneath Stonehenge through the efforts of the linguist Antony Henry, who had discovered a way to translate one of the Isu dialects into English. With this knowledge, he translated the text and sent the information in a digital folder to Layla Hassan as she relived Eivor's genetic memories.[7]
