SeamusSeamus (pronounced SHAY-MUS) is known by three appearances in the storyline. He appears first as Seamus Phyfe, a wandering minstrel at the Woodhaven Renaissance Faire. But he is more than meets the eye. He is Abigail's counterpart. Seamus reveals himself to be a winged lion to Alyson, his appearance in the Land of the Elders. His regal presence is impressive. Throughout the storyline, Seamus and Abigail both act as Alyson's spirit guides.
In his former (human) life, Seamus was alive during the time when Belladonna was. He saw her for the beauty within, that she had more to offer than just being a brothel madame. He loved her for the woman she was and for that, she loved him back. Seamus and Belladonna conceived two children: Lily and Rowan. Seamus was killed at the same time Belladonna's children were being born, as his debts to bounty hunters caught up with him and he was shot in a gun draw. This is the only life Seamus was human.
Seamus leads the Knights of the Great One.
