In Arthurian mythology she became the wife of Mordred who takes the form of a goat: yn awr maiden. She has brown eyes and wears black slippers. She travels on moonbeams. At the highest mountain in Wales she leads a group of magical vapory goats with vapory horns. In crone aspect she wears an oblong 4-cornered hat, ash-coloured clothes, apron thrown across her shoulder, and a pot in her hand to fetch milk. She haunts lonely roads at Lanhyddel: Stag Mountain in Monmouthshire and Black Mountain in Breconshire. Her father is lord of Castle Gwynn: The White Tower. (71, 75, 80, 96, 122)
