The Holy Wars
Son of Lugh, brother to Cu Chulainn
He’s the bastard son of Lugh. Everybody loves Cu, Cu’s the beeeeeeeest. Aedan fucking hates Cu because of it. Cu actually likes Aedan a lot, but Aedan just takes it as the golden boy taking pity on him and patronizing him. He fixates hard on all the praise and stories he hears Cu getting so he’s gonna do the Irish thing and go be so unbelievably badass that other people will have to start giving him the respect he deserves.
People could also genuinely like him, but he doesn’t see it that way.
Cu genuinely loves Aedan though and wants to be brothers.
