Awen is a Welsh word for "(poetic) inspiration". In the Welsh tradition, awen is the inspiration of the poet bards; or, in its personification, Awen is the inspirational muse of creative artists in general: the inspired individual (often, but not limited to being, a poet or a soothsayer) is described as an awenydd.

Y Ddraig Goch (Welsh Dragon). The Romans used the dragon as one of their symbols of power. Into battle they would carry a metal head of a dragon in which they would light a fire. This would burn fiercely in the wind and seems to be where all the legends of fire breathing dragons come from. When the Romans left Britain it seems that the dragon was adopted by others as their symbol of power. Hence the Welsh Dragon of today.
