Dagda

Profile

The Dagda was given his title, The Good God, because he is literally good at everything. He's popular with the ladies, generous to a fault, and he helped lead his people—the Tuatha De Danann—against their Fomorian oppressors. According to some, the Dagda is a hot mess: his clothes are so short that he's constantly mooning people, his hair is all crazy, and he bumbles around a lot. One thing we're sure of: he has a great sense of humor and he's widely worshipped as a lumberjack-style hunk.
