BLODEUEDD

Goddess conjured up using Welsh Wizardry by [MATH] and [GWYDDION] from blossoms.

This was all because a wife was needed for LLEU as his mother ARIANRHOD was adamant her son could not marry a mortal. However BLODEUEDD turned out to be flighty and not very nice with it. She found a lordly lover and together they plotted to kill LLEU.

This was no easy task as LLEU could only be killed with a spear that took a year to make, and then only if he was standing with one foot on a goat or some other edible animal and the other on a bath tub edge. This takes some serious planning.

The would-be assassins almost pulled it off, but at the crucial moment LLEU managed to turn into an eagle and fly away.

MATH and GWYDDION were not pleased to hear about this and turned BLODEUEDD into an owl, which in the circumstances they thought was rather a hoot.
