Incidentally, does Coircre have Oathsworn: Dragons? She may need to get a briefing from plot.

Tiggerat follows Cernunnos (Or Ka Dih as he is called by The Wheel) and Badb Catha

Sue's a good role-player. I'm sure she wouldn't miss the chance to emote. :)

Simon has already mentioned the other two Green Company ancestors, the four together tend to follow the seasons:
Rithure - springtime. A woman with wings of a bird. She represents new life, nurturing, healing and care. The promise of light after darkness. Similar to Danu.
Lifwal - summertime. A laughing life-bringer with the ears and hind legs of a hare.  He is all the joys life has to offer - nature, entertainment (in ALL forms), music, feasting and fulfilment. Similar in parts to Dadga, Cernunnos, Oghma, Bacchus and Pan.
Theart - autumn. Represented by a centaur. Battle, nobility, honour and wisdom. Smithing, artisan creation and havesting. Aspects of Govannon, Steel and champions.
Murath - winter. A woman with the head of a cat (quite literally, Cate Blanchett with James (Rodrigo)'s cat's head). She is the dark and barren times, wisdom through experience, death and judgement. Similar to Domnu, without the jealous sister bit, also aspects of Arawn.

Over the years, Meisgyn (AKA Ceillidh - her adult 'given' name meaning a bardic festival) has called on a number of ancestors, whomever is most relevant at the time. She doesn't believe in bothering an ancestor of war and bloodshed to bless the grain to bake bread, for example.  Most notably, she's called on Maclan during battle or when courage, resilience and strength of body and mind are required as he was her idol as a child (which probably explains a lot!).

More recently, she is linked to the 'three above and below' through the teachings of the Priestess Aderyn - Dagda and Cernunnos (as aspects of Lifwal) and in particular, Arawn. She was apprenticed to Karac Stormcrow and draws on his experience as a Child of Arawn, Bard of the Fallen, and dreams of being reunited with Lwcws, the Cw Annwn she saved from death when she was young.

I really should pay more attention to these things, Okay Cael's choice of ancestors as follows

The Goddess - All female ancestors in one collective, mostly under the lead name of Danu
Crom - I think we're all aware of this one
The Horned One - All those hunty types in one catch all name
Golgamoth - I run in strange circles

Also some respect to all previous God Kings and Ard Righs - but less 'worship' more 'respect'.

I'd put down God King Cael, but that seems a little arrogant, it's a life choice, not a religion ... yet.

The fact that I knew at least one player with Oathsworn didn't get the memo.

So to speak. No offence, Memo.

Visions work from a focal point if you were not at the focal point you might not get the vision, who said there can be only one?

Moira follows/worships/deals with:

Arawn
Domnu
Badb Catha
Cernunnos
Dagda

Probably in that order.

She always has an ear out in case any other ancestors (small a, rather than the Great Nine-or-More) are talking, too.

That would be because the ancestors don't bother Pebble when she's having her food.  I'm just taking it as read that they know better.
