Welsh - A magician. Son of Cil Coed. To avenge the treatment of Gwawl who had been rejected by Rhiannon in favour of Pwyll, he put a spell on Rhiannon and her new husband Manawydan together with Pryderi and his wife Cigfa, part of which involved a plague of mice affecting their farm. When Manawydan caught the biggest mouse and was about to hang it, Llwyd, in the guise of a bishop, offered a large ransom for the mouse who was his wife. When she was released, he lifted the spell and returned Pryderi and Rhiannon who had been spirited away. In some accounts, known as Llwyd, Llewyd or Llewyd.
