Fire Drakes

Fire Drakes are a form of dragon from Celtic mythology. They live in caves where they guard hoards of gold for kings and queens who provide them with human sacrifices. Would-be heroes often attack fire drakes in the hope of winning beautiful princesses.

Fire Drakes are known for their bad temper, aggresive nature and ability to breathe fire. They are solitary and independent creatures who do not like to be disturbed from their slumber. In their dreams, they receive powerful images and messages that open out the future and as such they have a prophetic knowingness.

Fire Drakes represent aggression.



Cerridwen

Cerridwen appears in the form of a crone, embodying the classical image of a witch. She is feared because of her power and her knowledge of ancient herbal lore, but she is also honoured for her inspiration, knowledge and intelligence in the art of magic. She is known as both a healer and as a poisoner; one should be cautious in approaching her.
