Wolves In Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology

The Irish werewolf is different from the Teutonic or European werewolf, as it is really not a “monster” at all. Unlike its continental cousins, this shapeshifter is the guardian and protector of children, wounded men and lost persons. According to some ancient sources, the Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings in time of war. Known in their native land as the faoladh or conroicht, their predatory behaviour is typical of the common wolf, not beneath the occasional nocturnal ra

ppc: "The ancient Baba Yaga is the wild old crone guardian of the Water of Life and Death. Goddess of Death and Birth who sings while sprinkling Water of Life on corpses the to let them be reborn. Although fearsome to look upon, like all forces of nature, often wild and untamed, she can also be kind. All knowing, all-seeing and all-revealing to those who'd dare to ask. She is the Arch-Crone, wild and free, a nature spirit bringing wisdom and death of ego, and through death, rebirth."

In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite was a sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon.
