A Welsh Giant who had a long beard which gave him his strength. The hero, Culhwch wanted to marry Olwen but he had to get consent from her father, Ysbaddaden. Ysbaddaden set an almost impossible task for Culhwch to complete to get the hand of this daughter. Culhwch had to capture the ferocious boar Twrch Trwyth by fashioning a noose made from the beard of Dillus. The long bearded Giant fought fiercely against Culhwch who killed the Giant and completed the task.
