One of the most notable characteristics of Morrighan's is her heterochromatic eyes with the left being dark brown and the right being a piercing light blue. It certainly makes her stand out among the rest, although it's a trait likely derived from her paint horse genes. She is a slightly different coloration than a standard paint horse being a grullo paint which gives her main coat color a mousey gray/brown. It's much lighter along her back and then fades to a darker brown with the dun markings along her legs. There is also a dorsal stripe going down her spine to the base of her tail. Her mane and tail are both a dark brown and long in length.

Her white markings are positioned more predominantly along the front of her body. She has a bald face, although the white does not cover her entire head. There is a larger patch along her left side where her shoulder and ribs are that wraps around her belly. Another larger patch can be seen along the inside of her left front leg. On her three legs with the white markings, the hooves are light in color with only one hoof being a dark gray.

Overall, Morrighan's built for speed and agility. She feels most comfortable in cooler or neutral climates, which made growing up in the Day court fairly difficult (and is perhaps another reason she left). Her other notable characteristic is her scars which can be seen in various areas on her body including her left cheek, loin/back and upper right shoulder close to her withers. They are perhaps the only visible qualities of her past as she will rarely speak of them out loud.

Morrighan will often be sarcastic, stubborn and narrow-minded. She likes to stick to her own way of thinking and her own beliefs, only leaning closer to another point of view if shown exact, reliable truth. If that's not the case, she will stick to her way being the right way and/or the only way and will never admit she's in the wrong.

Mor's very cynical and a typical pessimist, always expecting the worst and seeing the negative in situations. This is not to be confused with being a sort of depressed, she just simply has little faith in anyone and tends to think the worst of others. Mor is reserved and does not trust easily. Because of this, she hardly opens up, so there's a lot she keeps to herself. In a way, this has helped her learn not to be gullible and try to analyze others and situations more closely. It would take a lot for her to open up to anyone, especially romantically, so it would have to take someone with great determination and care. The moment anyone does wrong by her, they are usually out and Mor wants nothing to do with them. On the other hand, to those she does hold dear, she will do anything to protect and defend them.

Her actions have a habit of being done through impulse, especially if led on by her temper. Her patience level can be limited, but when she has her mind set on something, she will not give up so easily. She also finds enjoyment in annoying others by testing their patience and trying to find their breaking point. Her best attacks are through her words rather than physical combat, although she'll just as well put up a fight if put into the situation.

When it comes to the elements, Morrighan has the closest connection with fire, which runs in her family. Eventually, she will learn to wield this power for her own gain.
Born within the Day court, Morrighan never quite felt like she fit in even from a young age. She was raised primarily by her mother, Arden, as her father left before she was born. Arden barely talked about him, but from what little Mor knew about him, it was likely due to the fall of Zolin. She was born about a year after everything had happened, but the court was still in the process of picking up the pieces. Some didn't agree with a reform apparently.

Arden did her best as a single mother and Mor grew up being very protective of her. She tried to show Mor the wonders of magic and the fire magic that ran through their family line, but unfortunately Arden was starting to lose strength. Her mother hadn't fared well during the old regime and it was a miracle she was still able to foal Morrighan. Maybe it was because of this that Mor was often teased and bullied, or because she didn't socialize well with others. Most of her time was spent with her mother, caring for her and making sure she wasn't going completely senile. She tried to make friends, but they showed their true colors shortly after and Mor realized she had been foolishly led to believe they were friends. It hurt to feel such betrayal, sometimes leading into skirmishes, which some of her scars are from. Arden would then punish her for fighting, which didn't make the situation any better. Even with how much Mor tried to train to become a soldier one day, it was hard to make real friendships.

It was when she was a little over a year old that things were beginning to take a heavy toll on her. There was no one that she really felt close to other than her mother. Unfortunately, Arden seemed to be drifting farther away with each passing day and Mor didn't know what to do. One night, she had a dream that would change everything. She was visited by Caligo, although no words were said and it was very brief. Morrighan knew who she was immediately, but not the meaning for her appearance. Before she could ask, she and their surroundings disappeared and she was woken up. While her mother and most of the court were asleep, Mor decided to go on a little trip.

The trip turned into a more extensive one as she realized it was a lot harder to travel to the Night Court than she originally thought. At one point, she had to fight off a leopard which left her pretty battered afterwards. In reality, she had no clue where she was actually going, but she thought coming to the lands would give her answers. In a way it would because once she set further into the lands of Denocte, the more she felt… at home. It was a hard feeling to describe, but that was the one word that came to mind.

With the fear of being caught also in her head, Morrighan didn't stay very long in the lands and soon made her way back to Solterra and her mother. Unfortunately, Arden didn't handle her daughter's absence very well once she returned. Mor tried to explain her dream and everything that happened, but Arden didn't want to hear anything of it. Of all the other court deities, Caligo was the one most frowned upon to worship within the Day court, which made Arden shun Morrighan away. So, she fled Solterra and never looked back.

At first, adjusting within her new court was difficult and terrifying. While the lands made her feel at home, she didn't know anyone here and so she was more outcasted than ever. However, the longer she stayed and began visiting Caligo's statue, the more at ease she felt. At last, Morrighan was home.

Although she found this inner peace within herself, she still never fully trusted anyone. There was a short period of time where she thought she had found love with a stallion named Bram. He had a special kind of charm that blinded Morrighan. At first, things seemed real and genuine, but they turned sour pretty quickly. He was abusive and had little respect for mares, which she found out the hard way. The fact that he didn't have allegiance to a single Court should have been a red flag from the start, but his looks drew her in. He had a habit of treating mares this way and trying to have relationships with many at once. Morrighan couldn't put up with it for long and successfully drove him out of Denocte with some help from other Court members. Bram hasn't shown his disgustingly handsome face since.

That was the one and only time that Morrighan had ever opened herself up to love and now she has very much hardened since then. She swears never to be vulnerable like that again and prefers her solitude. Besides, dealing with anyone for longer than a few minutes will usually test her patience.

Despite her bitterness, the Night Court is her home, and dare she say it, her family (although she may never admit this out loud). As much as the general population bothers her, she would die for them (or at least the ones who were worthy of her life). Mor carried her previous training with her and has stayed within their ranks as one of their own soldiers.
