MATH

Welsh Ruler God

Also known as Math fab Mathonwy, Math ap Mathonwy

Magician king of extraordinary feats

The brother of the Goddess Dôn, he also depended upon a rather extraordinary life support system. For some reason, his feet had to be held in the lap of a virgin or he would die. Which must have been rather inconvenient for all concerned.

This strange condition only passed when there was a war on. However, he still needed a foot massage before he could nod off after a hectic day’s sorcery.
