Magic: Bres is a magical being of impressive power. He can generate a force field, fire destructive energy blasts, alter his shape, fly, and has limited precognitive abilities. He can call forth the "dark side" of individuals, forcing them to relive their darkest memories, which either simply demoralizes them, or brings them under his control. He can also cast illusions.
The Fomor (Fomore) are the original spirits of Ireland, and they withheld mortal colonization of the land for millennia.
Realizing she needed a force for good among the Fomore, he goddess Danu (Gaea to the Greeks) mated with Elathan, the son of Delbaeth. She gave birth to the first of the Danaans: Dagda and Leir, Amaethon and Gwydion and Arianrhod and Penardun and hid them away from their father until the time came that they could overthrow the Fomore.
Elathan, however, raped the Danaan goddess Eriu, and she gave birth to Bres. He was accepted among the Danaans and they never knew his actual parentage. After the leader of the Danaans, Nuadhu, lost his hand in battle, the Danaans chose Bres from among their own to lead them. Bres, however, soon ended up turning over Ancient Ireland and Avalon back to his father's relatives, the Fomore. Nuadhu had his hand restored for one of silver by Dian Cecht the leech (healer) and led the Danaans into battle once more. This time, they completely eradicated the Fomore from Earth and exiled them and Bres to the Dark Realm, a dimension beyond Otherworld/Avalon.
