48 days until Hellboy Day - Dagda
Dagda was king of the Daoine Sidhe during most of the events of Hellboy. Due to the timing of his death, he was also the final High King of the Tuatha De Danann (Gods of Ireland). Dagda had at least two sons, and seemed to have been king of the fares for quite some time, though it’s unclear how long. Dagda was among the cabal that watched Hellboy develop over the course of his life, appearing with Mr. Grey, Baba Yaga, and others as they tracked his progress, though it seems they never had any physical interaction.
Gruagach’s bloody plans with Nimue seem to have caused the downfall of the great king, as he was stabbed to death by a crazed follower of the pig-fairy. While the hedgehog murder seemed repentant and saddened by his actions, the great king still fell. His death acted as a signifier of the end of things, as he was followed by many other ends.
