An old woman with one and a blue face from the mythologies of Scotland. She lives it the Celtic underworld and comes to the shore from time to time. In the form of a weak old lady, she knocks on people’s door, asking to be let in. Anyone who does is in great danger, because once she is inside, she swells up to a huge size and wreaks havoc. However there are times when she is helpful. She carries a pot of balsam which she uses to cure the sick. She also has the ability to bring the dead back to life with the touch of her finger.
