I was wondering what she would give up if not a member of the Dagda. Then I looked it up on wikipedia and just confused myself.
Author's Response: Oops, was that unclear? 'Dagda' is an old god of Celtic Mythology and the Oak is his sacred tree. Incidentally Dagda possessed a magic cauldron in mythology, I decided to use this as the inspiration for the ancient pensieve, sunk in Dagda wood, that Jacka guards. The wood around Theophany's home was once called the Dagda's wood as it is an oak forest. The resistance group took their name from their home wood.
Theophany's choice to give up being a member, by disobeying, is a choice to align herself with someone outside of her home and her community, and even her tradition. She understands the seriousness of this but maybe not the long term repercussions.
