DYLAN

Welsh Sea God

Also known as Dylan eil Ton, Dylan ail Don, Dylan O'Taine

A born swimmer?

As a bit of a Sea God, he didn’t make much of a splash.

The son of Gwydion and Arianrhod, he leapt from mom’s tender embrace straight into the sea. Sometime later, his uncle, a Smith God called Govannon, killed him.

The waves sighed. Sometimes they still do.
