I hate doing this. I hate writing a blog post for a demon that I could only find one source document for.
But an Irish Huntress Faery… I mean, how could I resist?
According to Maberry, and Maberry ALONE, there’s this Irish Huntress Faery. She’s sexy, she’s immortal, and she’s PISSED OFF.
There’s an Irish fairytale about a beautiful young woman named Dwylla. Growing up, she was a tad different from the other lasses. She didn’t have a father. She could talk to birds, she could see in the dark, and maybe the tops of her ears were just a bit pointy.
On her sixteenth birthday, she overheard her mom telling her aunt that Dwylla had been born nine months after she’d been raped by an Elf sorcerer.
Whoa, happy birthday, kiddo.
Dwylla decided the whole lot of the elf race needed to be exterminated, picked up her quiver of arrows, and rode off to do the job.
Maberry says there’s another version of the tale, where Dwylla’s mom was an elf raped by a human nobleman, leading Dwylla to hunt humans.
I didn’t find any corroborating evidence anywhere. I’m not saying Maberry is wrong, or that he made it up. He probably just spend more time researching.
Either way, I don’t care. Dwylla’s here. She stays. And she’s after YOU.
