Your Field Guide to Spotting Nuada Silver-Hand

He loves spending time with his Tuatha de Danann kin, watching movies, going to concerts, and playing Scrabble. While exercising his kingly duties, he makes sure that all the Irish are protected, except those evil Fomorians and Fir Bolg, so try not to run into him when he's around those guys.
