Diancecht was the Irish god of Healing and Medicine in Celtic culture during the Bronze age in Ireland. Diancecht was the son of Dagda, "the good god of the Irish Celts", and was the physician to the Tuatha De Danaan, the ruling clan of gods.

Greetings, I am Avalanche, I'm a chimera. I'd love to fly with you, or hunt, deer is my favorite. I used to serve an old wizard who lived in a small hut in the mountains, but he suddenly disappeared one day, so I left. Anyway, see you around.
