Sharvan

Irish - A one-eyed giant. A magic quicken berry, dropped by one of the Danaans, grew into a tree in the Forest of Dooros and produced many berries which could restore youth to the aged. The Danaans decided to send Sharvan to guard the tree to ensure that no mortals ate any of the fruit. When Grania developed a hunger for quicken berries, Dermot asked Sharvan for permission to take some for her. When the giant refused Dermot killed him with three blows of Sharvan's own iron club, which was the only way he could be killed. Also commonly known as Sharvan, Lochlannach, Lochlannach, Searbhan, Searbhan, Sharvan the Surly or Sharvan the Surly.
