Aeron roams the verdant hills and forests of Wales, her sharp eyes scanning the landscape for any signs of danger or disturbance. She is a fierce and formidable warrior, with long red hair that whips around her face in the wind and a lithe, muscular frame that belies her strength. As a goddess of battle and slaughter, she is always ready to defend her people and strike down their enemies with ruthless efficiency.

In the 1450s, Aeron is deeply concerned about the state of her homeland. The Welsh people have been oppressed and subjugated by their English neighbors for centuries, and Aeron has seen firsthand the suffering and misery that this has caused. She longs to see her people free and independent, able to govern themselves and worship their own gods without interference.

To this end, Aeron has been quietly working behind the scenes to foment rebellion and resistance against the English occupiers. She has been gathering allies and supporters, and has been training her followers in the arts of warfare and sabotage. Aeron knows that the path ahead will be long and difficult, but she is determined to see her people emerge victorious in the end.

As the 1450s unfold, Aeron becomes increasingly involved in the struggles of her people. She leads daring raids on English strongholds and convoys, and inspires her followers with her bravery and determination. Even as the English tighten their grip on Wales and crush any signs of rebellion, Aeron remains undaunted. She knows that the fight for Welsh independence will be a long and bloody one, but she is willing to make any sacrifice necessary to achieve her goals.
