Finn mac Cool is one of the greatest warriors to come out of Ireland, but he's also a softie at heart (poor guy's fiancée, Grainne, ran out on him). He's also had absolute knowledge ever since he burned his thumb on the Salmon of Wisdom. That doesn't stop him from wanting to look good, though. As the leader of the Fianna warrior band, Finn loves to sculpt his abs and glutes with his buddies at the gym.
Finn mac Cool (or Fionn mac Cumhaill)
Finny. I was born "Deimne," but I got my nickname, "Finn," which means "blond," from my hair color.
Somewhere in the Otherworld, waiting for Ireland to be in danger so I can come back to life and rescue the Irish people.
I trained with my personal war band, the Fianna, from age eight. I also got some insider training from my aunt, a Druidess, and her BFF, a female warrior.
I make the rules in the Fianna.
My dad's name was Cumhall and my mom's name is Murna. Some people told me that my dad attacked my mom, then was killed in war by the hero Conn of the Hundred Battles. Other people said that, because he was chief of the Fianna, his rival warriors of Clan Morna got jealous and bumped him off.
My son, Oisin, was a great warrior and poet, and my grandson, Oscar, was no slouch on the battlefield, either.
Most of the Fianna
Goll mac Morna, who killed my dad; Diarmaid, a warrior who stole my bride-to-be, Grainne
Married to Sadb, a princess who was a human, then turned into a deer, then became a human, then a deer again. Yeah.
