Kwan Yin (“She Who Hears the Prayers of the World”) was originally the mother goddess of China, who proved so popular She was adopted into the Buddhist pantheon as a bodhisattva. A bodhisattva is a person who has attained enlightenment but chooses to forgo Nirvana and remain in the world to help others attain enlightenment. Kwan Yin’s specialty is compassion, and She is known as the Goddess of Mercy. Before She became a bodhisattva, Kwan Yin was a princess named Miao Shan. As Miao Shan She endured many trials, especially from Her father, who wanted Her to marry. But She refused, and instead dedicated Her life to Buddhism. (x)

The mortal enemy of Arawn, he is the Summer Lord. Defeated by Pwyll it is said, and dragged away by his nobles never to fight with the Winter King again. He is associated with the Oak king and so his plant is rightly the oak.
