Taliesin is a legendary celtic figure.
He was a poet, a shapechanger and a pupil and companion of Merlin. He came to Mochdref after the death of Artorius and the end of Camelot. He would often take the form of an eagle and observe the knights of the Round Table disporting themselves. On occasion he is said to have gazed upon Perceval in his hermitage after he had fulfilled the quest of the Grail.
