    Leanhaun Shee

    The leanhaun shee or lianhaun shee is a fairy mistress of dreadful power, for she seeks the love and dominion of mortal men--if they refuse her, she is their slave and if they consent they are hers.

    Most men find that they cannot refuse her. Only one lianhaun shee exists and she is more a force than a woman.

    Each fairy woman who loves becomes one with her; and for the mortal man who longs for her she is the one and only.

    She does not play with emotions; all who love her, live for her and their desire for her frequently destroys them. The more suffering she inflicts the dearer she becomes to them. The more they desire her the more she eludes them.

    An impatient mistress, she creates such desire in her lovers that they will overcome all obstacles to embrace her. She never yields to them in mortal lands, but insists on their meeting in Tir-na-n-Og, so that men must pass through death to enjoy her.
