A deer-headed humanoid god who is the Lord of Animals in Celtic mythology. One image of him found in Denmark depicted the god as wearing a tunic and holding a snake in one hand and a royal torc indicating that he combines the nature of animals with the culture of man. He is the doorkeeper to the other world and those that wish to enter must first answer his questions.
