Arawn - God of the Underworld, Terror, Revenge, and War

Arawn was the king of the otherworld realm of Annwn, a world of delights and eternal youth where disease is absent and food is ever-abundant. Arawn was the owner of a magical cauldron with rejuvenating powers, that would not boil a coward's food.

He is also a god of smithing, war and revenge, and the god of the wild hunt. He rides with his red eared hounds Cwn Annwn or Hounds of Annwn, through the skies of Autumn, Winter and early Spring, especially at Calan Gaef (Samhain) and Calan Mai (Beltane). The quarry of the hounds are the souls of the dammned being chased back to Annwn.
