OriginEdit

Appearing in the Ulster Cycle of Irish myth, Cú Chulainn was renowned as an immense warrior. Born Sétanta, he was kidnapped from the royal court and accidentally killed the smith Culann's hound in self-defense. At twelve. To apologize, Sétanta pledged his service to Culann until manhood, guarding the man's property as "Culann's hound".

The young Cú Chulainn was prophesized to become a great albeit short-lived warrior, with his sheer ferocity repeatedly proven in battle. He singlehandedly defended Ulster and held off waves of foreign invaders. When stirred into a frenzy, he transformed into a bloodlust driven monstrosity that couldn't differentiate ally from enemy. Many times he unintentionally killed friends and family, such as his son Connla and best friend Ferdiad.

Cú Chulainn is spiritually weakened by taboos and mortally by mystical spears, fulfilled by a coalition of slain opponents' sons. Even then, Cú Chulainn continues to fight and ties himself to a pillar. After death, his arm is cut off, which falls and manages to cut off the leader's own sword arm.

EffectsEdit

Subject will transform into a horrifyingly destructive form that minimally resembles a person, allowing them to defeat nearly any combatant. Staying within a general area over time will increase the lethality of the effects, which activate during high levels of stress and terror. Repetitive use forces circumstances that culminate in the killing of close friends and relatives.
