Master Dafydd is an 11th century renegade monk from the Kingdom of Strathclyde whose numerous heresies (notably those dealing with the celibacy of the clergy) led to his expulsion from his order by his enraged abbot, following curious incidents involving a barrel of wine, a crumhorn, a duck and the victuals set aside for the Feast of St Pancras. The low-water mark of his career was his appointment as court entertainer to Donuil Ban, King of Scots, who later referred to his verses as 'a rancid collation of parboiled rhymes'. In later life he became a devotee of Toirdhealbhach, the god of porridge. His quest for the porridge of his dreams was finally realised by Lady Christia Barret of Rowany, in whose everlasting debt he remains after she introduced him to Athelbrose.
