The Norse spirits, The  Dis cross between the characteristics of Valkyrie’s and The Fates. I loosely followed the Hero’s Journey when I wrote this recent novel and the Dis take the role of mentor by offering historical information, about the cult, to my main character.

Unfortunately, I didn’t detail the three women enough for anyone to recognize them as the Dis, but that’s partly because few are acquainted with their myth and even those who know the most about them – know very little. To most people, they will appear more like three witches in the woods, swamp witches, or just three elderly ladies.
