History

The Thuata Dé Danann - Children of Danu in old gaelic - are among the youngest pantheons but hides a tremendous amount of potential and mystery. Descending from the lost Goddess Danu, they are now led by younger deities Niamh and The Dagda. They may be young, but in a shorter amount of time, they suffered as many losses as the major pantheons and implicated themselves in the World more than anyone else.

Almost all of them are powerful druids, and they are warriors before anything else. Warrior-poets, warrior-diplomats or warrior-druids. Their feasts are sophisticated, their songs and poems are symphonies and their swords are deadly. After they conquered it from the fomorians during the First Battle of Mag Tuired, the Tuatha Dé lived in Ireland, among humans, to rule them. Through the Eye of the Earth, Danu managed to thin the physical barrier between the World and the Overworld to the extent Ireland and Tir na nÓg were almost merged together. After the Tuatha Dé's withdrawal, the barrier thickened back to normal, but on Samhain Day - October 31st - it thins back the way it was during the days when Gods were walking among men and all of Ireland and Britannia become an Axis Mundi to Tir na nOg.

During their time on Earth, they created a tremendous amount of Legend, especially thanks to the Enech magic which allowed them and their Godborns to accomplish the most legendary deeds.

The Tuatha Dé are also very close to Nature and thus, to mythborns. Exception being of the now-Titanspawn fomorians, they are welcomed and even allied with most of the mythborn species. After they suffered terrible losses during the Second Battle of Mag Tuired, and the Milesian invasion followed by the Concordat of Stonehenge, they had no choice but to accept the Aesir's proposal to become their vassals.
