Gaoth Siorghlas (pron. GEE SHYORglas) - Evergreen Wind - was a member of the Fae high court until around the mid-17th Century. Connected to Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, the celtic Fae of her time primarily spoke Gaelic, although the fact that their home "Under the Hill" had no real, physical location and could connect to any land allowed the Fae to pick up a number of other languages.
Scotland and Tam Lin
Tam Lin, a legendary figure in Scottish faerie tales, was a rogueish fellow who'd caught the eye of the Fae queen, and of many members of her court. When his roadside dalliances became so bold the queen nearly couldn't pretend not to notice them anymore, Gaoth, heavily infatuated, sought to get the young man out of court.
She did so by playing match-maker, finding a young woman whose beauty would attract Tam Lin's eye, and whose strength of character would capture him, and spreading rumors of the young man's habits and virility in that woman's vicinity. When it became clear that Tam Lin would have no other, Evyrgreen helped the young couple by acting as a go-between while they planned his escape.
The Mask of the Green Man
Twenty years later, the once-flighty queen still had not gotten over the loss of Tam Lin. Even the gift of a beautiful mask of the Green Man, fashioned from petrified wood, could not lift her spirits. Gaoth lost her patience with the Queen, and in a fit of anger confessed her part in Tam Lin's escape.
The queen, livid, fused Gaoth with the mask of the Green Man, turning it into a statue of the fae, and, inadvertently, permanently binding one of the lost Tablets of Destiny, the Wood Tablet, to Gaoth.
The Dancing Fae
The statue, known to collectors as The Dancing Fae, had its own legends associated with it. It was said that at night, the shadow of the statue, when cast by a full moon, could be seen to move. It was said that whoever owned the statue would live forever, or at least age very slowly. It was said that the statue could heal even the most grievous wounds just by its presence in the room.
All of these legends were true - Gaoth, trapped within the statue, was still able to use her abilities as a healer, as well as her formidable mental powers, to influence those who owned the statue. It was her hope that someone, in an attempt to unlock the secret of the statue, would free her.
The Broken Fae
During the mid-19th century, the statue fell into the hands of an "art collector" who had a rather large collection of statuary. All of his statues were of petite women, or young girls. Many of them were suggestive. He had purchased the statue not for its healing powers, but for the Fae's diminuitive, child-like form. It was he who removed the wings from the back of the statue, which changed the tone of the statue dramatically.
It was from him that the Cabal acquired the statue. And it was the Cabal that eventually freed Gaoth from her imprisonment.
Narrowly escaping the Cabal, Gaoth encountered one of Paragon City's heroines, who took the newly-released Fae to her contacts in MAGI.
MAGI helped Gaoth acclimate to her new home, and helped her register under the superhero monicker "Evyrgreen". However, the Fae are immortal, and the queen had been known to hold a grudge for a very, very long time.
