Gwenydd was the daugther of Modron, the high priestess of Glowecestrescire, in whose path she was set to follow. She spent much of her time playing in the woods and it was said the girl's father was the pagan god Cernunnos himself.[1]

Biography

Unknown to most people, Gwenydd was conceived during a fertility ritual between both Modron and Cynon. Gwenydd proved to be their legacy and a great representation of harmony between pagans and Christians.[2] Within Gwenydd's family life, Gwenydd followed her mother's teachings and had a bigger sister figure in Brigid, daughter of the last ealdorman before Cynon.[3]

A Tale of Wicker-Fire

Unknown to Gwenydd, her parents were protecting her against Tewdwr's plan of a new Glowecestre.[3] When news of the Viking Eivor Varinsdottir killing Tewdwr broke out, Gwenydd and Modron were found by Eivor, who asked for help. Gwenydd advised her mom and Eivor about the druid Halewyn who might know more.[4]

Modron and Gwenydd gave advice to Eivor

After Eivor found out that Cynon framed her, Gwenydd found Eivor and Brigid in the Glowecestre's town hall. Gwenydd was asked about where to find Cynon. However, Gwenydd promised to help if Eivor watched her magic tricks, to which Eivor agreed. Gwenydd was also asked about her family and the young girl responded that her mom and the god, Cernunnos, came together one night and had her. Gwenydd also revealed that to find Cynon, she would have to ask the festival planners.[2]

Eivor watched Gwenydd's magic tricks

After finding out Cynon to be inside St. Kenhelm's Church, it was revealed that Gwenydd was his illegitimate daughter and her mother, Modron, planned all of this to make sure Gwenydd had a future.[2]

After Eivor dealt with Cynon, Gwenydd was unknowingly present within Modron's chambers in Ochre Caves as Eivor battled Modron and saved Tewdwr. As Eivor decided Modron's fate, Gwenydd was present to watch the final decision. As Eivor left with Tewdwr, Gwenydd responded to Eivor's actions towards her family.[5] At the burning, Gwenydd stood besides Tewdwr, who promised to uphold his role as a leader to all pagans and Christians alike.[6]

Behind the scenes

Depending on the choices made in "A Love Betrayed" and "The Gutted Lamb," Gwenydd would have been an orphan in Tewdwr's care or have Modron take care of her. Also, depending on Cynon's fate, Gwenydd would have said their last good-byes at the burning or not.
