In Celtic mythology, Lugh or Lug was a god of the sun and light known for his handsome appearance and skills in arts and crafts. A patron of heroes, Lug appears in many Irish and Welsh legends. Lug was the son of Cian and the grandson of Balor, the king of the evil Formorians, a race of violent, supernatural beings who lived in darkness. Lug became king of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, married the mortal woman Dechtire, and had a son named Cuchulain, who became a great hero.

Bran the Blessed - Celtic God of Rejuvenation and Protection, Lord of Ravens. He died protecting modern-day England, but his severed head continued talking and giving advice for several months afterward. When it at last stopped, it was buried in the White Hill, where some say the Tower of London stands today. According to folklore, that is why ravens still guard the Tower of London.
