CIAN

Mighty Celtic warrior deity and father of Lugh

He is the brother of GOIBHNIU the Great Smith and father of LUGH via illicit bedroom liaison with BALOR's daughter ETHELINE.

Disguising himself as an old crone with the help of the druidess Birog, he sneaked into BALOR's transparent tower and performed the deed in ETHELINE's crystal bedroom. We just hope they drew the blinds first.

A mighty warrior, CIAN was finally laid to rest at the hands of BRIAN and Co.
