Afagddu
Also: Avagddu, also called Morfran
Welsh: ugly?

The son of Cerridwen, he is called the ugliest man in Britain. It was for him that she started brewing the cauldron of inspiration, but the awen accidentally went to Gwion Bach. He is also said to have been one of the only men to have survived the battle of Camlann, for his ugliness was so great that people thought he was a demon.
