- The Hero of Mag Tuireadh: The Knight of Light, Lugh -
By Mian


Author Preface

Us humans have lived as owners of blessed Erinn and have lived out a beautiful legacy. Of course our history was not always pleasant, as we were tried and tested by natural disasters and faced attacks from vicious Fomors.

Today, in a time where we are now able to protect ourselves and hardly run into Fomors, many people think that the threat of Fomors is only a joke. However, we must not forget the countless lives that were sacrificed against these Fomors for us to live in freedom today.

This book was written based on that mind set, about a great leader who brought us victory during the Mag Tuireadth war. The purpose of this book is to honor and praise his great accomplishments and to explain the kind of life that he has enabled us to live.

I pray that the protection of Lugh, the great Knight of Light, will be on all those who read this book and revere this great leader.

Lugh Lamhfhata

The Knight of Light, Lugh, fought against the Fomors during the second war of Mag Tuireadth and brought victory to humans. However, there are no written records on his birth and background. Some say that this is because he did not doing anything noteworthy before his heroic act, but others attribute this to the fact that many documents were burned and ruined during the first Mag Tuireadth war, asserting that Lugh's records were also lost there.

The earliest confirmed record we have of him is after the first Mag Tuireadth war. It is said that he appeared in Erinn during the reign of King Breath and received great admiration and praise because of his exceptional combat skills and his valor. This record is also famous for being the first document to contain Lugh's entire name, "Lugh Lamhfhata" in its entirety. Considering his mysterious past that no one seems to know, some people even say that Lugh was sent from heaven by the Goddess of War to save mankind.

Lugh, who was serving as a local military officer during the tyrannical rule of King Breath, caught the attention of Airget-lamh, the wise King Nuadha. He then battled against the Fomors on several occasions, becoming the commander in chief in control of all of Tuatha de Dananns.

When the second war of Mag Tuireadh broke out, Lugh defeated Balor, the Fomor king, and put an end to the long war between humans and Fomors.

Then, what were the factors that allowed him to achieve complete victory during the second war of Mag Tuireadth?


1. He prepared for war in advance.
Not only did he recognize that even the first Mag Tuireadth war was instigated by the Fomors, but he predicted that King Breath, who was dethroned, would soon lead the Fomors and attack humans. Knowing that, after the first war during the time of reconstruction, Lugh continued to train the army. Some of the royal counselors were not pleased with Lugh's direction and efforts, but if you consider the fact that not too long after, the second Mag Tuireadth war broke out with a full on attack from the Fomors, you can only be astonished at Lugh's observation and preparation.

2. After the war broke out, he handled everything without wavering.
When the second war broke out, many of the King's counselors suggested that we form a treaty by offering gifts and offerings, which even King Nuahda agreed to. However, Lugh saw that the Fomors did not attack for any offering or gifts but that it was a strategic move to completely annihilate the human race that had become weaken by the first war and by King Breath's reign. His wisdom was once again proven later by the discovery of the corrupted Sage, Jabchiel's instigation.

3. His efficient tactics and orders according to the situation.
Despite Lugh's preparation and training, the human army was significantly inferior to the Fomor army at the time. Humans were already at a disadvantage if they were to fight with Fomors one-on-one, but with the Fomors completely outnumbering the humans, it would've been difficult to even sustain the fight let alone win the it. However, Lugh overcame this disadvantage by utilizing the landscape and time in his strategy and eventually defeated the Fomors.

4. He united the different races.
The strength of the Fomors during that time was unparalleled in history, and despite the heroics of Nuadha, it seemed impossible to even put a dent in their army. Also, the corrupted sage Jabchiel began attacking certain regions of Erinn using the Eweca's Moon-Rock and the situation for the human race seemed bleak. However, Lugh was able to persuade the Spirits, Imps, and the Fir Borgs, who fought against the Tuatha de Dananns in a great war, to help fight against the Fomors. The shiny armor that Lugh wore and his weapon Brionac were all made with the blessing of the Spirit, and without their help, it would've been impossible to gain victory in the war even with Lugh's preparation and leadership.

Following the war, Lugh, the Knight of Light, succeeded deceased Nuadha's throne, becoming the leading figure of Tuatha de Denanns and reigned over the Aliech Kingdom.

Though his accomplishments as a King after the war is praiseworthy, many people will remember him for being the courageous leader during the time of war. They will always remember his fierce countenance and his shiny armor, the Knight of Light.

Conclusion

They say that after Lugh accomplished many things as a King, he handed over the throne and suddenly disappeared. However, he is not far away. He will forever remain a hero in our hearts as the Knight of Light. And we believe that when Tuatha de Dannans are in danger again, he will come again and rescue us.
