Irish Folklore~~ The Darkman


The Far Dorocha, also know as the Dark Man, is a powerful servant dedicated to the fairy queen. He might perform her menial domestic tasks, or, on the queen’s orders, ride his black horse to our realm to capture a mortal who has taken her fancy. Although he is always silent, the Dark Man can make any humans surrender their wills to his command, an they climb onto the back of his steed without protest. His fairy horse exhales fire from its nostrils as it races through the night, setting alight hedgerows across the countryside from the speed of their passage. Almost always the mortal’s journey to the land of the fairies is a one way trip.
