What is a Psychopomp?

Via dictionary.com:


a person who conducts spirits or souls to the other world, as Hermes or Charon.
1860–65;  < Greek psȳchopompós  conductor of souls.

A psychopomp can be anything, however, not only a person. Some American Indians believed that ravens escorted the spirits of the dead to the afterlife. In other mythology, it was Charon, who shuttled souls across the river Styx in his ferry.

In Welsh mythology, shared around much of the region, it was Gwyn ap Nudd.  This rich culture and heritage has been lost to the ravages of time, but I do not believe it must remain so.

I hope to revive Gwyn figuratively, by his literal revival within the pages of this book. It is my deepest hope that I do true justice to the story, but also to the man. The God. The Psychopomp.
