Nuada is instantly recognizable; after all, it's not every day you come across a guy with a silver hand. Though it's not all rainbows and butterflies: the Irish healing god Dian Cecht had to give him the silver one when his first hand was chopped off. Extremity talk aside, Nuada is the king of the Tuatha de Danann—the magical people of Ireland—and loves to show off his sword skills. He can usually be found with his de Danann friends, doing magic tricks and fencing the hours away.
