RUADAN

Celtic Unknown God

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.
