Llew - Dylan

Llew - Dylan It is thought that Dylan also represents the dark, and Lleu the light. This sense of opposing twins, though not novel to Celtic myth, is also seen in the later Arthurian figures of Gawain/Gwalchmai and Mordred, with Gawain (whose character has been theorized to be influenced by both Lugh and Cuchulain) in the role of Lugh, and Mordred in the role of Bres/Dylan (remember that Mordred is supposedly drowned at birth, but survives).
