|“||Her name was Andromache. And she was ... so beautiful. And kind. And I loved her ... so much||”|
During the War, Morrigan travelled across the world, and believed it was safe to take her first female lover. She fell in love with Andromache, a mortal queen. Their love was short, as Morrigan believed that Andromache should continue her royal line, especially during a chaotic time. She left and returned to the Night Court.
Sixty years later, Andromache was involved with the creation of the Wall and the Treaty. Once the wall was created, Andromache and Morrigan could not meet. During this time, Andromache married a man and had an infant daughter. For three years, Mor attempted to cross the wall, however after learning that Andromache was married she left them alone.
Andromache later bore four more children and died as an old woman in her bed. When Morrigan found out, she mourned her lovers death, and decided to take no lovers for a while. Though this thinking later changed and Morrigan decided to take females and males to bed once again.
When meeting the Mortal Queens, Morrigan senses the spirit of Andromache in the golden queen, otherwise known as Demetra.
