Predators: 1000 AD Bio:
"The Predator of the Emerald Isles finds mention only in a burnt page from the 'Leabhar na hUidhri' (pronc. 'yower no hoodra'), or "The Book of Dun Cow". Compiled c. 1100 A.D by a thousand Catholic monks, it records myths, legends, customs and events dating back to the 7th century - including the arrival, rule, and departure of the 'God of Bones'.
It describes the arrival of a single creature, it's life among a small group of Celts, minor skirmishes, and it's rule as de-facto Chieftain over the course of 3 generations. When word reached it's enclave of a 'beast' slaughtering Norse settlements on the Western continent (modern day North America), the 'God of Bones' departed, and was never seen again."
