Fairy Love --- Beware!
Leanan Sidhe (Fairy sweetheart) – A Celtic fairy of either gender who seeks love of mortals.
If the mortal refuses, then the fairy must become their slave. If the mortal consents, they are bound to the fairy and cannot escape, except by finding another to take their place.
The Leanan Sidhe are very passionate. However the mortal pays a high price for this love with a short life. Their embrace draws life and breath from the mortal while the fairy becomes stronger and brighter.
In Celtic Legend, the Leanan Sidhe is a muse who gives inspiration to her poet or musician lover. She will sometime take form of a woman to inspire men in battles with her songs. Those she favours are successful and have brilliant careers.
