Case File: Lleu vs. Arianrhod

Police Reports

Case Description: Lleu Llaw Gyffes accuses his mother, Arianrhod, of child abandonment, forcing his uncle, Gwydion, to raise him. Arianrhod was so stubborn she even cursed her son: She would never give him a name, allow him to marry a human woman, or allow him to get weapons like a real warrior unless she gave them to him.

Case Status: Dismissed. Gwydion and Math, those tricksters, found ways around Arianrhod's curses so Lleu got a name and a wife, and became a pretty good soldier.
