RUADAN

God of Spying and Espionage.

The son of BRES and BRIGIT, he was sent by his sneaky father to spy for the FOMORII. He infiltrated GOIBHNIU's weapon foundry and found him engaged in making the latest slim shaft, super-sharp, swivel action spears.

Grabbing one, he stuck it into the Great Godsmith, but perhaps he had not had time to study the instructions as GOIBHNIU calmly pulled it out and showed him how it should be used — with deadly effect. Sklitch!

When BRIGIT discovered that her son had been totally shafted, her wailing was such that it started the tradition of keening, used ever since at Irish Wakes.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ruadan graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ruadan 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 Ruadan statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ruadan. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
