Morwenna the Fair
Morwenna the Fair (Morwenna merch Tegan) comes from the steading of Brynhyfyrd, in the Araul Anterth. She is known for her graceful movement, broad smile, and piercing hazel eyes. Once asked why she favors red and yellow clothing, she replied, “Because they are the colors of cider apples.” Her hair is long, braided and black. She is a joyful person but has a serious side as well.
By the time she was 25, Morwenna was well-known throughout Gyruff as a dance teacher, a dance musician, and an excellent cook. Invited into the prydythi (preh-deeth-ee, tr. scops) just before the invasion she has been traveling since, working hard to record and preserve Gyric traditions. She was known to be in Hochoch for the birth of Owen’s son Rhys. Her epithet “the Fair” actually comes from her ability to judge complaints and arguments fairly in her childhood steading, rather than her beauty.
With the passing of Rhys of the Ash, many would consider her the foremost among the living prydythi. Along with Briallen the Heatherdown and a midwife, Morwenna was present at the birth of Rhys ap Owen.
