Arawn was the Welch King of the Underworld. His name means "Silver-tongued". "King of Hell", and "God of Annwn" He fought in the Battle of the Trees (Cad Goddeu) with Bran against Amathaon and Gwyddion. Arawn, like most Otherworld Gods, was a master hunter. He who rode a pale horse and had a pack of white hounds with red ears. The archetypal purpose of his hunts was to gather souls for the Otherworld. He was successful if the quarry was not smart enough to evade the chase.
