cu chulainn is just such a fucking icon like this druid showed up with a prophecy that whoever took up arms that day would live a glorious life at the expense of an untimely death and not only did cu chulainn upon overhearing this immediately haul his 10 yr old ass over to the king of ulster to demand he get to take up arms right now he also smashed every single spear he was given until the only one left was the king’s spear and the absolute madman had the gall to say “yeah this one suits me” when it was handed to him. then he demanded a chariot and did the same. then he took the chariot for a ride and killed several enemies of ulster just for kicks. imagine being a big shot somewhere and this fucking 10 yr old walks into your office and demands you give him a gun and a car and when you give him a nerf gun to play with he snaps it in half with his bare hands, steals the keys to your ferrari, takes your chauffeur to drive him around, and that evening returns with the heads and wallets of several of your biggest competitors. that’s cu chulainn.
