A Muse is a Fae that inspires and stimulates creativity.
The Muse is a seductive Fae.
The Morrigan is a Dark Fae Muse. She entices and manipulates struggling artists and musicians, inspiring them to achieve fame and fortune — then drives them to madness and death as she feeds their talents out of them (it remains unknown if the latter behavior is the same for all muses).
TRICK: The Morrigan. She's a Leanan Sidhe....A Fae seductress....An evil muse if you will. (It's Better to Burn Out Than Fae Away)
The Muses in Greek mythology, poetry and literature, are the goddesses of the inspiration of literature, science and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture, that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths. The Muses, the personification of knowledge and the arts, especially literature, dance and music, are the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (memory personified). Hesiod's account and description of the Muses was the one generally followed by the writers of antiquity. It was not until Roman times that the following functions were assigned to them, and even then there was some variation in both their names and their attributes: Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Euterpe (flutes and lyric poetry), Thalia (comedy and pastoral poetry), Melpomene (tragedy), Terpsichore (dance), Erato (love poetry), Polyhymnia (sacred poetry), and Urania (astronomy).
