Elathan was the Fomorian god of the sky, and a fomorian prince.

The worship of the Fomorians by the ancient Celts started about 2000 BC, and they were worshiped by the fierce Fir Bolg people inhabiting Ireland mainland. In approximately 1896 BC, the Tuatha de Danaan came to Earth, and defeated the Fir Bolg for control of their territory.

Despite an enmity between their people, Elathan mated with Ériu and sired Bres (who rapidly matured after his birth and was chosen to succeed to Nuada as the new ruler of the Tuatha, but would later be deposed).[1]


Elathan presumably possess the superhuman physical attributes common to his race, including true immortality, superhuman strength and durability...[1]
