The story is based on Celtic legends. When a tyrant queen from the land of Temra invades the peaceful land of Kells, King Conchobar must rely on an ancient legend which foretells of an orphan who will find the mighty warrior Draganta and "bring peace to Kells for 1000 lifetimes." The legend also tells of the four Mystic Armors and Pyre the fire dragon. The recipients of the Armors are Angus, a miscreant of sorts; Ivar, a Moorish prince; Deirdre, Princess of Kells; and Rohan, a destiny-bound druid's apprentice and the young man foretold in the legend. They are joined by Aideen, a young fairy; Fin Varra, the king of Tir Na Nog; and Garrett, the eventual fifth Mystic Knight. Together, the five Mystic Knights continue to defend Kells from the Queen Maeve and all her evil magic. Written by
I remember tuning into this when it first premiered in the fall of 1998, and finding it to be a delightful surprise. It was from the creators of "Power Rangers," and each episode followed the tried-and-true "Power Rangers" formula, but unlike "Power Rangers," it managed to capture a sense of awe and wonder about it. I loved the armour of our Mystic Knights. So elegant. Just like magic armour in this kind of show should be depicted. Too bad that second season never materialized. I would have liked to see more in the Kingdom of Kels.
