"Dangerous" Dai Llewellyn was a very famous Welsh wizard and Quidditch player for the Caerphilly Catapults, and was noted for the risks he took during a match.[1]

Biography[]

Dai Dies

Llewellyn during his fatal encounter with a Chimaera

Dai Llewellyn was born to Dilys Llewellyn, who lived at Ty Draig in Caerphilly, Wales.[4] An exciting and risk-taking Quidditch player, Dai was the most famous member of the Caerphilly Catapults.[1] While on holiday in Mykonos, Greece, Dai sent a postcard to his mother telling her that he was having a fantastic time and wished she could be there. He also informed her that he planned to go Chimaera trekking the next day.[4]

While on his trek, Dai was eaten by a Chimaera. His death resulted in a day of national mourning for all Welsh witches and wizards. Llewellyn was honoured by the creation of the Dangerous Dai Commemorative Medal, and St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries named the Serious Bites ward after him. Kennilworthy Whisp wrote a biography of the player entitled He Flew Like a Madman.[1]

Etymology[]

Dai Llewellyn was a Welsh socialite who died in 2009.

The name "Dai" is derived from the old Celtic word dei meaning "to shine", but is also a commonly-used nickname in Wales as a familiar form of the name "David", so it's quite likely that this was 'Dangerous' Dai's real first name. Llewellyn (the spelling varies) is a common Welsh surname. It was the first name of several Welsh lords, most notably Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the last ruler of an independent Wales. There is no evidence that Dai was named after a particular Llewellyn.
