Irish Hero God
Also known as 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 Ethlinn.
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 Ethlinn’s crystal bedroom. We just hope they drew the blinds first.
A mighty warrior, Cían was finally laid to rest at the hands of Brian and Co.
