Leanhaun sidhe: The Love Fairy

Posted:  Wednesday, February 14, 2018 - 8:15am

She is a love fairy and carries the red rose with her at all times. But love can cut both ways as anyone who has ever experienced heartbreak knows. The Leanhaun sidhe is a Gaelic muse, a solitary fairy, who seeks men to love, and live off of, for the more they are in her power, the more they waste away. The last gift they give her is their writing and poetry. She is immortal and death does not destroy her power. She is ever seeking for the next man to inspire and claim.
