MONGÁN

Irish Transformation God

Also known as Mongán Mac Fiachnai

God of Shape-Shifting and Appearance Alteration

He was the result of some hanky panky by Manannán mac Lir who did a bit of shape-changing to impersonate a king whose wife he fancied. When the resultant baby was three days old, Big Mac sneaked him off to his ‘Land of Promise”.

Mongán grew up to inherit his father’s shape-changing abilities. He put them to such good use that no-one knows what sort of shape he is in.
