Tall, proud, and filled with the strength of the forest, the Tuatha Dé Danann grow branching horns on the crown of their heads. They are the defenders of the woods, and the keepers of its deepest secrets. The Tuatha consider themselves the leaders of the Realm, for they are descendants of great heroes. Their power rises and falls with the turning of the seasons, and they are known to suffer greater harm at certain times of year. As sentinels of the forest paths, they refuse to work with fire. The Tuatha fight for the glory of the natural world, and believe the story of their great deeds will echo down the ages as the greatest of epics.
