DECHTIRE

Daughter of [MAGA] and Cathbad, a Druid.

At her wedding to someone of no Godly status, she swallowed a fly whilst swigging at the feast and fell asleep. She dreamed that LUGH told her to become his bird along with fifty of her kinswomen, and fly to him as a flock of birds. So she did.

She did not come back until three years later and she had a three-year-old child with her who was called CUCHULAINN. The things that happen at weddings.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Dechtire graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Dechtire movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Dechtire statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Dechtire. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
