Irish - A druid. He worked as a smith and, when asked to foretell the future for Niall and his brothers, he set fire to his forge and watched to see what they would save from the blaze. Niall rescued the anvil which led Sithchenn to prophesy that he would become a high-king of Ireland. In another test, he sent them into a forest where they met a hideous hag at a well. She would allow only the one who kissed her to drink. Only Niall complied and she thereupon turned into a beautiful woman. Occasionally referred to as Sithchenn, Sithchean, Sithchean, Sithcheann, Sithcheann, Sithchean(n) or Sithchean(n).
