In later tradition, the role of the king of Annwn was largely attributed to the Welsh psychopomp , Gwyn ap Nudd - meaning "white" i. However, Arawn's memory is retained in a traditional saying found in an old Cardigan folktale:. The name Arawn is possibly analogous to the continental theonym Arubianus. In the First Branch of the Mabinogi , Pwyll mistakenly stumbles into the realm of Annwn and finds white hounds with red ears feeding on a stag. Pwyll chases the hounds off, only to learn that the hounds belonged to Arawn, ruler of Annwn.

To pay for the misdeed, Arawn asks Pwyll to trade places with him for a year and a day and defeat Hafgan , Arawn's rival, at the end of this time, something Arawn has attempted but has been unable to do. Arawn, meanwhile, takes Pwyll's place as lord of Dyfed.

Arawn and Pwyll become good friends because when Pwyll wore Arawn's shape, he slept chastely with Arawn's wife. A friendship between the two realms is retained long after Pwyll's death; in the fourth branch, Pryderi , Pwyll's son and lord of Dyfed has received a gift of otherworldly pigs from Arawn. These pigs are eventually stolen by a Venedotian magician and trickster , Gwydion fab Don.

Gwydion poses as a bard, and asks to be rewarded for his poems and music with the pigs Pryderi owned. According to Pryderi, he is still in a pact with Arawn and cannot give the pigs to anyone. Gwydion then tricks Pryderi into trading him the pigs as that is allowed in the deal with Arawn , which eventually leads to Pryderi's invasion of Gwynedd. In the ensuing war, Gwydion kills Pryderi in single combat. While Arawn is noticeably missing from the Second through Fourth branches of the Mabinogi, some scholars claim this is due to the missing portions of the original text and that Arawn and the events of the First Branch of the Mabinogi directly lead to the birth of Pwyll's son Pryderi.

Other scholars disagree with this idea, as many of these newer translations create more problems within the story and do not ground themselves in the Llyfr Gwyn, from which the Mabinogi was translated. While Arawn is integral to the First Branch of the Mabinogi, his character seems to be more of a reinforcer of the lore behind Pwyll and potentially Pryderi than a character that directly impacts the story of the later Mabinogi Branches.

The mysticism that is involved within the entirety of the Mabinogi is first shown when Arawn and Pwyll switch bodies for a year. The baying of the hounds was identified with the crying of wild geese as they migrate and the quarry of the hounds as wandering spirits, being chased to Annwn. However, Arawn himself is not referred to in these traditions.

Later the myth was Christianised to describe the "capturing of human souls and the chasing of damned souls to Annwn", and Annwn was equated with the " Hell " of Christian tradition.

Some writers, notably Robert Graves , have written of an incident in which Amaethon steals a dog, lapwing and a white roebuck from Arawn, leading to the Cad Goddeu Battle of the Trees , which Arawn lost to Amaethon and his brother, Gwydion. And there was a man in that battle, unless his name were known he could not be overcome; and there was on the other side a woman called Achren, and unless her name were known her party could not be overcome.

And Gwydion ab Don guessed the name of the man". The parallel between the Green Knight and Arawn extends to the treatment of the "newcomer. However, many of the characters traits are altered within these books, as Arawn is depicted as an evil ruler. The stories still retain the idea that he is king of the Otherworld, and that he is in a struggle to take over the land from another king. In this story Arawn is defeated by his foes instead of taking over his kingdom like in the Mabinogi.

According to Koch, [6] the name "Arawn" may be derived from the Biblical name Aaron , the name of Moses 's brother, and so could be of Hebrew origin and meaning "exalted". That the name "Aaron" had currency in Wales as early as Roman times is shown by Gildas , who wrote that "Aaron and Iulianus were Christian martyrs at Urbs Legionis [the "city of the legion", probably Caerllion-ar-Wysg ] in the time of the Emperor Diocletian.
