God of Bones: Druidic Predator Chieftain (1100 AD)

 

The Predator of the Emerald Isles finds mention only in a burnt page from the 'Leabhar na hUidhri' (pronc. 'yower no hoodra'), or "The Book of Dun Cow". Compiled c. 1100 A.D by a thousand Catholic monks, it records myths, legends, customs and events dating back to the 7th century - including the arrival, rule, and departure of the 'God of Bones'.

It describes the arrival of a single creature, it's life among a small group of Celts, minor skirmishes, and it's rule as de-facto Chieftain over the course of 3 generations. When word reached it's enclave of a 'beast' slaughtering Norse settlements on the Western continent (modern day North America), the 'God of Bones' departed, and was never seen again.

Once considered an aprophrical tale by historians, mention of a unique oak throne aided in the story's validation when an Wayland Industries excavation team uncovered it in a cave on the Isle of Man. Initially thought to be adorned with a modified dinosaur skull, advanced DNA testing of the ornament revealed exterrestrial origins. Furthermore, the human skulls contained within the throne predated the wood it was carved from by 500 years.
