European mythologies, from the shores of the Mediterranean to northern Scandinavia, link the wolf to fertility, protection, destruction, punishment, sunlight and the heroic deities who embodied these values like Apollo or Belen.

For the Celts. Lug, the supreme god of Celtic mythology, is represented with two wolves, probably due to the Indo-European resemblance between leuks "light", which is perhaps the basis of Lug's name, and lukwos (or wlkwos) which means "wolf".

In the Celtic Breton tradition, bleiz ( "wolf" in modern Breton, bleid in ancient Breton) is one of the last great druids.
