Dormarch

Region of origin: Wales

One of the Cŵn Annwn, the hounds of the Welsh version of the Wild Hunt folklore, Dormarch or Dormarth belonged to Gwyn ap Nudd, lord of the fairy folk who had at some point acquired him from the Gweynedd king, Maelgwn Gwynedd. He was said to live among the clouds and, after battles, he would descend to the earth to collect the souls of fallen warriors and bring them to join the Hunt.
