Aife
 
Queen of the isle of Shadows
 
Sister of Scatach
 
 Other sources place her as a consort of the sea God Manannan or one of his sons,
and say she stole an Alphabet of Knowledge from the deities to give to
humankind. For this transgression, and her general meanness, she was transformed
into a crane by the elder deities.
