Description

Macha is the Goddess of War and Destruction, the sister of Morrighan and Neamhain, and the second known Badhbh Catha Goddess. Macha is known to be able to control peoples' minds and chase away the fears and anxieties that paralyzed peoples' hearts. Macha excels in martial arts and has also been known to unify her warriors and provide them with the strength to overcome their enemies.

Macha is described in the book Macha According to Emain Macha.

The city, Emain Macha, is named after her, and some believe that she takes the form of a mermaid or a siren, hence the city's emblem.

Mainstream Storyline

Trivia

  • In Generation 1 using the Goddess Morrighan Keyword on Aeira has her suggest that all three sister goddess should have black crow wings. In spite of this, Macha has only been ever seen with red wings.
  • In Generation 3 Nele recites a song titled "Macha's Curse" when using the Macha the Goddess of Destruction Keyword that was said to have been her curse upon mankind for having been betrayed by her mortal lover.
    • "Macha's Curse" is a heavily edited version of the Morrighan's final prophetic poems in the real Cath Tánaiste Maige Tuired (The Second Battle of Mag Tuired).
      • "Macha's Curse" skips the first poem, where the Morrighan describes the events of the battle. The curse instead briefly summarizes the positive prophecy's second poem and then mostly focuses on the negative prophecy's third.
      • Despite their importance, the Morrighan's poems are often omitted from translated versions of the Cath Tánaiste Maige Tuired.
  • Unlike her fellow deities, Macha does not use Demigod skills or have any form of attack; she only frequently Teleports and summons Aonbharrs and Red Falias Floating Stones to attack in her stead.
    • Also, unlike her fellow deities, Macha has no moving animation whatsoever.
  • Macha is one of two The Saga: Iria antagonists that has only engaged combat outside of a cutscene once, the other being Bhafel.
