The son of a Gododdin princess name Thynoy and an unknown Pictish rapist, Kentigern was sentenced to death by his grandfather before he was born. His mother was able to escape with the help of her brother, Cynan Colledawc, and she made her way out of the kingdom.

In his youth, Kentigern made his way to Strat Clut with his mother in order to flee from Ymellyrn, who saw Kentigern as a threat to his legitimacy as the new king.


Early on in his residency Kentigern decided to pursue an ecclesiastical life. He took the orders as soon as he was eighteen and had been made bishop by the time of the Gododdin invasion of Strat Clut by Morgan in 554.


Escaping to Gaul, Kentigern participated in the ecclesiastical affairs of the continent for many years. His most notable participation was in the Saffaracus trial, though he was also present at the Council of Paris.


Invited back to a restored Strat Clut he soon became central to the lives of the royal family, helping Queen Languoreth to find a ring she had given to her lover. It was he who met with Columba, and together they ensured peace between the Picts, Dalriadans, and Strat Clut for many years.

Kentigern also met a deranged prophet named Lailoken, who had once been a warrior but who had run off into the forest after his lord had died at the Battle of Ardferydd. From Lailoken, Kentigern learned the circumstances of his own death.


Kentigern spent most of his ecclesiastical life running from his heritage so that he could be a better man of God. It was only when he finally realized that his bloodlines could enhance the church when properly used that he developed into a great leader.
