OriginEdit

As the "Washer at the Ford", Bean nighe wanders near deserted streams where she washes the blood from the grave-clothes of those who are about to die. It is said that mnathan nighe (plural of bean nighe) are the spirits of women who died giving birth and are doomed to do this work until the day their lives would have normally ended. While generally appearing as a hag, she can also manifest as a beautiful young woman when it suits her. Although associated with evil, they are merely messengers relaying when death is imminent. It is said that if approached politely, they will allow three questions and wishes, but must have three questions truthfully answered back.

EffectsEdit

Holding the rag allows the user to cry tears of acid, capable of dissolving most organic matter within minutes. Over time, their body will cope by removing the connection between the brain and sensory organs, leaving the user unable to perceive their surroundings.
