Sometimes it went on the rampage, killing people in the town and causing flood damage as it thrashed around in the lake.
When Arthur came to hear of the strife caused by the water demon at Llyn Barfog he went to the lake and threw a great chain around the Afanc.
According to John Rhys in Celtic Folklore the word Afanc seems to have originally meant simply a dwarf, then it came to be associated with water dwarfs.
The original meaning appears to have been forgotten and the word was applied to any water monster.
Using his horse Llamrei to pull the Afanc from the lake, the struggle was so arduous that his steed left a hoof print in a nearby rock overlooking the Dovey Estuary.
Today a stone on a hill above Aber-tafol, Merioneth, on the A493, bears a depression that is said to be the hoofprint of Arthur's horse, known locally as Carreg Carn March Arthur (‘Stone of Arthur’s Steed’s Hoof’).
It is said that a terrible water demon, the Afanc, lived in the lake, from where it would raid the surrounding countryside.
There are however several variations on the Afanc legend; other tales have a beautiful Welsh maiden luring the Afanc out of the pool with a soothing lullaby.The intention was for her to enchant the creature, while a hunting party chained and hauled it from the lake and sent it on its way to its eternal doom.
