God of the Week: The Hag of the Mist

11/1/2010: The Hag of the Mist

The Hag of the Mist was a Celtic deity associated with terror and death.

[a] supernatural being associated with water was the Gwrach y Rhibyn. She was suppose to reside in the dripping fog, but was seldom, if ever, seen. It was believed that her shriek foretold misfortune, if not death, to the hearer, and some even thought that, in a shrill tenor, and lengthend voice, she called the person shortly to die by name.

-Welsh Folk-Lore, By Elias Owen
