Son of ELATHA and Eri, he married BRIGIT and wheedled his way to become King of Ireland by fighting demons. Although he was of half-demon descent himself.
He was not a popular ruler and with the aid of Caipre, son of OGMA and famous satirical bard, his wife made him such an object of ridicule that he came out in sores and boils.
This upset BRES so much that he became a turncoat and joined the demons. When he was captured in battle he sniveled and pleaded and sold Godly secrets until his life was spared. Did he sell BRIGIT into Christianity?
