Gorse - Keeper of the Kistvaens

Gorse is a lovely older Keeper in her mid years. She is guardian of the kistvaens, which are holy burial chambers.

A Keeper is the Genius Loci of a specific ancient place, and in this instance, locations on Dartmoor in Devonshire. It is the spirit of the land and is a sentinel that protects the sacred nature of the site. One can think of them as essentially caretakers that still live among us, but are in spirit form. They are truly enchanted nature spirits like faeries, elves, and gnomes, and are magical in every sense of the word.
