Badh Catha is a daughter of Morrígan and the twin-sister of Nemain. She appears before battle to name those who will die. Her appearance scares the mightiest heroes, because she looks like a horrible old hag with various deformities - usually. If she wants to, she appears as a seductively beautiful and young women with raven-black hair and pale skin.
Badh Catha is the goddess of assassins, thieves and spies, those who take things covertly, who cause trouble and sabotage even before a war begins.
She won't fight in battles with physical weapons, instead she uses terrible magic to confuse and terrorize the enemy, while enraging and protecting the Tuatha dé Dannan and their allies.
Badh Catha prefers deceit to win a fight before it actually happens. Her followers shall only fight from an advantageous position. If victory is a questionable result, they have failed in their preparations.
Using fear and terror so that enemies surrender before they draw their weapons and before they go to war is actually better yet.
Badh Catha's followers bear torques of silver and use a silver figurine or amulett depicting a raven as their divine focus. They favour black, purple, dark red and similar colours.
Each follower chooses to pray either at dawn, dusk or midnight; at the time when he acquires his class.
Badh Catha's temples are black, with silver and white ornaments. Most of them are more or less secretly in league with thieves and other criminals.
