"Dangerous" Dai Llewellyn was a very famous Quidditch player for the Caerphilly Catapults, and was noted for the risks he took during a match. He was eaten by a Chimaera while on holiday in Mykonos, Greece. His death resulted in a day of national mourning for all Welsh witches and wizards. Llewellyn was honoured by the creation of the Dangerous Dai Llewellyn Commemorative Medal, and St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries named the Serious Bites ward after him. Kennilworthy Whisp wrote a biography of the player entitled He Flew Like a Madman.
