Celtic Good Luck God

Also known as SUCCELLOS, SUCELLUS

Very popular God of Prosperity and Good Fortune

He’s known as the Good Striker. This has no connection with football — it refers to his hammer. If you’re dying, he’ll put you out of your misery. This is the origin of the phrase ‘Three strikes and you’re out’.

On a more positive note, if he hits the ground, you’ll get plenty of prosperity and luck. And also a dented lawn.

Apart from the hammer, SUCELLOS is known for carrying around a large pot which is filled with goodies. Probably potatoes. Although in some regions he is known as a God of Alcohol — so he might be on his way to a bring-a-bottle party.
