This well-dinted shield has been in the possession of a Caelic village elder for as long as can be remembered, passed from mother to daughter for generations, the druidic spirit of the lineage strong within the line. When druid Roîsîn Merrick had no daughters, but an only son, she was dismayed. But the spirit of Gaea was strong in her boy Cillean, and his affinity with the wintry southern gales was evident even when he was but a lad. Lying mortally wounded by the arrow of a Brute attack, Roîsîn bestowed her sacred shield to her son, begging his promise that he would enlighten the non-believers rather than seek petty revenge for her death.
