Bran Mak Morn is a hero of several stories by Robert E. Howard. In the stories, he is the last king of Howard's romanticized version of the tribal race of Picts. He is a direct linear descendant of Brule the Spear-Slayer, companion of the Atlantean king Kull, whom his magician summons to fight with him in "Kings of The Night", a novelette first published in Weird Tales 16 5 (November 1930).
Bran Mak Morn is the leader of a dying and degenerate people, a poor reflection of what once they were and is deeply aware of their inevitable path to extinction, though like all Howard characters he choses to fight against this rather than succumb. His main enemies are the Romans and he makes a very unholy alliance to defeat them in "Worms of the Earth", a novelette first published in Weird Tales 20 5 (November 1932).
