[Christine’s Halloween Monster and Faery List]

Kings: C

Craiphtine, Craftine (Crackling Fire)
God and harpest of the god Móen: Silent One. His music lulled to sleep the parents of the goddess Moriath: Sea and the defenders of Dinn Rígh: Fortress of the Kings. Craiphtine went and played his hole-headed lute for the god Cormac: Raven as punishment because his wife, Scenb was Cormac’s lover. He then changed Cormac: Raven’s army of 15 youths into birds, put a poisonous spell on their wings, and they fell asleep by the side of the lake. As they slept Scenb came in the form of a hawk, and killed all the birds but one. (58, 146)
