Bio:

High Concept: The Deadliest Blade in Britannia

Known far and wide for his victory in several notable duels, Lugh may very well be the best one-on-one fighter on the isle… and everyone knows it. Like a warrior from some bronze age poem, he is often called upon (or challenged) to act as champion for his patron’s ideals.

Trouble: Hound of the Queen

Charged by his father, his faith, and his own oaths, Lugh serves Queen-to-be Gwenhwyfar in all things. This can be a heavy burden, as he must navigate tricky political waters he just as soon would have stayed clear of, as well as deals with the Gwenhwyfar’s not always practical demands. Sometimes it means dirtying himself with actions he would never have willingly taken on his own.

Knight of Hearts

Fair of face and open of heart, Lugh inspires deep emotional reactions just by being himself. Sometimes these are friendships made in a moment. Sometimes dire hatreds. Sometimes (for good or for ill) he lights the fires of love in those he meets. Universally, though, no one is indifferent to the knight of hearts.

Loyalty Forged in Fire

Though not a general by any Roman standards, Lugh nonetheless inspires loyalty in those who have fought beside him. The oaths of his Princes of the Old North are made over the fires of their enemies burning. They will push their limits for him… and he for them.

Peacemaker

When he faced the Saxon King Winta in battle, Lugh was wounded by the sword dubbed “Peacebreaker”. After the fight Lugh took the weapon for himself and renamed it “Peacemaker”, pledging to use it to put an end to the fighting destroying Britannia. The finely made weapon lends Lugh strength in battle, but he often finds himself living up to the name outside the fray as well. Too often he is called to intervene to put to rest quarrels between the hotheaded leaders of Aulus’s warbands.
