Tethra was king of the Fomorians who dwelt underground in the 'fairy-realm'.  He had command of a magical army.  He joined in the fight alongside Balor, Indech and Bres Mac Elatha against the Tuatha Dé in the second Battle of Magh Tuiredh.  He and his people had lived in the Underworld for many centuries before the Tuatha Dé themselves were forced to retreat down underground by the Milesian invaders.
