Gaelophile pagan musings about Scion

I have an NPC Scion of the Morrigan (he's lostsatyr's PC's mentor) in my & lostsatyr's Scion game.

When reading the description of the Morrigan's preferred form ("a lean iron-gray hag soaked in the blood of her foes," or something very like), and noting that she's also a fertility goddess, it got me to thinking.

Maybe it's my gender, but it occurred to me that the traditional depiction of her might have more to do with her fertility aspect than might be apparent at first. In one sentence - "You came into this world naked and covered in blood - you're going out the same way!"

Maybe this is just me projecting my own fantasies about female empowerment into gaming, but I think it makes sense.
