Tuatha Dé Danann, by Maÿon. In Irish-Celtic mythology, the Tuatha Dé Danann are the Irish race of gods, founded by the goddess Danu. These gods, who originally lived on 'the islands in the west', had perfected the use of magic. They traveled on a big cloud to the land that later would be called Ireland and settled there. The Tuatha Dé were later driven to the underworld. There they still live as invisible beings and are known as the Aes sidhe. In a just battle, they will fight beside mortals
Hekate was the daughter of the Titans Asteria and Perses. She was the goddess of magic and witchcraft, ghosts, necromancy, and the night. In later traditions, she gained rule over the three-way crossroad, and was depicted as a three-form goddess.
