Dáire Ó Lochlainn Dáire was born in Derry in 954. He was raised by the Brothers of St Columba and has served them in many capacities over the years. Born to an Irish mother and Norse father, Dáire straddles the bridge of the Hiberno-Norse of late 10th-century Ireland.

Dáire lives in King's Land between the Barony of Montengarde and the Shire of Ayresgarde, 'guarding' the Pass of Kicking Horses against incursion from Tir Righ.

Still finding his feet within the Kingdom, Dáire very much enjoys partaking in and delivering classes as he explores the offerings of the Kingdom and the Known World.
