Black Worm of the Barrow

British - A huge worm or serpent living in the Mound of Mourning in Wales. This monster held a stone in its tail which could produce gold for whoever owned it. The mound was protected by 300 knights, each of whom wanted the stone. When the Black Oppressor tried to steal the stone, the worm blinded him in one eye. Peredur killed the worm and gave the stone to his helper, Edlym. Sometimes called Black Worm of the Barrow.
