When he was sixteen Sláine was cast out by his tribe, the Sessair, for an unauthorized liaison with the King's bride-to-be, Niamh. He spent years exploring the Land of the Young in the company of his unscrupulous servant, the dwarf Ukko, and occasionally aided by the druidess Nest. He eventually became embroiled in a war between earthly mystics and alien gods, before finally returning to his people to become their King, leading them against the demonic Fomorians. Blessed by the Earth Goddess, he became a living incarnation of her consort, the Horned God, and eventually the first High King of Ireland. He later gave up his title (after a number of adventures in other time periods as the servant of the Goddess) to Gael, founder of the Gaelic race. Having lost his wife, Niamh, murdered by the evil Moloch, Sláine eventually left his homeland in order to find his missing son, Kai. His adventures continue.
