Cerridwyn is one of the most magical of Welsh goddesses. She is the quintessential stereotypical "hag witch" -- hunchbacked, cackling, stirring her cauldron full of magic potion. Yet this image is but one side of the great goddess Cerridwyn.
Cerridwyn is also a mother, to a dark boy named Morfran and a beautiful girl named Creidwy, and a wife to the giant Tegid Foel. Her family means a great deal to her, and her magic stems from her need to help them. She seeks to protect her family, to remove obstacles on their paths. Like all good parents, she wishes the very best for her children and strives to provide for them. No young, virginal maid, Cerridwyn has the resources, self-confidence, and inner power and wisdom to forge ahead and aid her family members.
