The Glastig, also known as the Green Lady, is long known to dwell in the Scottish Highlands and long speculated to have once been a mortal woman.
But, did she join the Good People by choice, or was she stolen away from her bed?
Either way, her days and nights are filled with protecting highland livestock and when the spirit takes her, caring for young children, old folk, and other weak minded or weak bodied mortals.
At first glance, she appears an altogether altruistic Faerie.
So why do we fear her?
Why does her presence in a community cause such dread among farmers and hunters?
Is it because she has the lower body of a goat? Or is it her penchant for drinking blood?
Join Kitty to find out.
