The Celts were a group of culturally and linguistically-affiliated peoples who lived in Europe.[1][2] They primarily lived in Great Britain, Ireland, and north-west France.[1]

The famous Celtic hero Tristan tried to slay the giant Morholt and ended up getting stabbed with his poison sword.[3]

Thestrals had a special affinity for wizards and witches descended from the horse-loving Celtic peoples.[4]
