Giant birds of Celtic mythology that were owned by a warrior called Drudwas ap Tryffin. They could understand the human language and would obey commands. On the eve of a battle against the legendary Arthur, Drudwas ordered the birds to kill the first man to enter battle and waited for Arthur’s attack. However Arthur was delayed and the birds instantly turned on Drudwas who was torn to pieces. Later the term Adar Llywch Gwin was used to describe hawks, falcons and brave men.
