Edlym Red Sword

An earl from an unnamed eastern land who developed a kind of hero-worship for Peredur Long Spear.

Edlym caught up with Peredur during the latter’s adventures and asked to become his loyal compatriot. Peredur agreed and Edlym accompanied him to the Mournful Mound where Peredur killed the Black Serpent of the Barrow. After the battle, Peredur gave the Serpent’s magical stone to Edlym and sent Edlym to be with his lover, the Countess of the Feats.

Peredur | 13th century
