Morvran

Welsh - Son of Tegid Voel and Ceridwen. Brother of Avagddu and Creirwy. Avagddu was the ugly son for whom Ceridwen prepared a magic brew to make him wise in compensation for his ugliness. Morvran, in most accounts, was a handsome youth but in some stories he was one of Arthur's warriors and even uglier since none of the enemy at the battle of Camlan would tackle Morvran, believing him to be a devil. In this version, Avagddu is merely a nickname for Morvran. Sometimes referred to as Morvran, Morfan, Morfan, Morfran, Morfran, Morf(r)an or Morf(r)an.
