Ossian

Ossian is the narrator, and the supposed author, of a cycle of poems which the Scottish poet James Macpherson claimed to have translated from ancient sources in the Scots Gaelic. The furor over the authenticity of the poems continued into the 20th century and as such here are parallels with the Australian Ern Malley.

Ossian was supposedly the son of Fionn mac Cumhaill, a character from Irish mythology. See Wikipedia for further clues.
