An enormous cat of medieval French legend that could swim and would prey on humans. It would swim across the sea of Menai Strait from north Wales to Anglesey creating destruction along the way and on land. It was born from Henwen as one of its litter that fell into the sea. There is a similar Irish version called Murchata. Eventually it was killed with a shield wielded by the hero Sir Kay.
