Rank/Title/PositionArchdruid of the Raven's Nest Circle.
Physical AppearanceErin's hair is long, luxurious and very wavy with large curls. It's too blonde to be brown and too brown to be blonde and too homogeneous to be dirty blonde so the only word to describe it is 'fawn'. Her eyes are blue and her skin is a light tan with freckles all over. She's slim but fit with very dense musculature despite her thinness. She's approximately 5'8".
There is a Celtic knot tattoo running up her left side, wrapping around her upper arm five times and ending with a triskele on the back of her left hand. Both ears are also pierced though she doesn't usually wear earrings.
Erin usually wears a loose, thin t-shirt that reveals her collarbones but not her cleavage and jeans, preferring to go barefoot. She also wears a necklace and two bracelets on each wrist of square stamped bits of silver with different symbols. These are a source of some of her power especially when cut off from Gaea and allow her to perform spellcraft much quicker.
Personality and InterestsErin is humorous and smiles frequently but is utterly terrifying when someone close is threatened (unless it's River). She hates godly interference in her life and finds it cathartic to massacre demons as a pastime. She loves her brother Callum and mother Branwen (despite Branwen's unfortunate birdiness). She also likes hanging around in nature, chatting with elemental spirits or visiting the Time Islands in Tír na nÓg. And occasionally messing with the Tuathá dé Danann because she can and they're a bunch of assholes.
HistoryErin grew up in Iron Age Ireland, when she and her brother became druids, until Aengus Óg decided he wanted to screw her. Erin didn't like it and her mom Branwen STRONGLY objected, so Aengus turned Branwen into a raven forever. Erin, Callum and Branwen jumped ship at that point and left Ireland to hide from Aengus in the Isle of Mann where they met an even OLDER druidess named Tíen or River. Tíen taught them a bunch of cool stuff and then Erin and Callum started their own grove of druids which became the Circle of the Raven's Nest and grew to include witches and mancers as well.
Weapons/Artifacts/Magical Items [preferably in that order if possible]Erin currently has possession of two swords of the Tuathá dé Danann, Fragarach which belongs to Mananann mac Lír (she has it with permission) and Moraltach, which belonged to Aengus Óg. She took it after she killed him.
Fragarach cuts through anything, can summon the winds, and can be used to both paralyze a person while forcing them to tell the truth.
Moraltach will kill with one strike and whatever it cuts decays and blackens. It still takes a bit and people usually get last words.
Erin also has a staff named Foirne, which is wooden with inlays of silver and iron so it can kill werecreatures, fae, and Maenads.
