Fergus mac Roich


Fergus mac Roich is a warrior and a ladies' man, so he can't really choose between being a lover and a fighter. In that case, you can find him warming a lovely lass's bed or practicing his swordplay with friends. Fergie's a former king of Ulster, but now he's a loyal soldier—to whichever Irish king he feels he owes allegiance to. That allegiance might change from time to time, but one thing remains the same—he's Fergalicious.

Political views


Family & Friends (& Enemies)


Ross was my dad and Roich was my mom.


My half-brother, Fachtna, was king of Ulster before me.


Conchobar mac Nessa is my stepson and Cuchulain is my foster son. I have three boys of my own—Ciar, Corc, and Conmac. When one of my sons was killed by Conchobar's men while protecting Naoise, though, all bets were off.


Conchobar mac Nessa, Cuchulain, the Sons of Uisnach, Deirdre, Ailill of Connacht, Conall Cernach, who's my fellow warrior


I switch political sides often enough that I've both loved and hated Conchobar and Ailill. Also, I hate Lugaid, Ailill's flunky who murdered me.


Relationship status

Always lookin' for ladies. Once married to Nessa and former lover of Maeve; boyfriend of Flidais.

"It wasn't that I didn't feel like sharing. Mostly I just figured they couldn't do anything about it, so there was no point in worrying them. I said, 'A wee little bit,' instead, in honor of being in Ireland, where one adjective was never enough if three would do."-C.E. Murphy, Raven Calls
