I found this child in a small coracle by the water, what do we do with him?
We shall keep him and name him Tad!
Who decided to bring him here...ew.
Mordred this is your new home. Here is a puppy to keep you company when I am not here.
The Round Table
Can you not just hug me and call me your son...
Mordred, would you join my knights of the round table?
Mordred, along with many other babies, were sent in a coracle into the ocean to die. This was done by King Arthur of Camelot to avoid the fate that Merlin has told him. Mordred is the only baby to survive and is found by a fisherman who brings Mordred home to his wife. He is named Tad.
Mordred Tries to Fight His Fate
Nyneve, a sorceress, finds Mordred and takes him to King Lothians castle where he meets his two half brothers and his birth mother, Morgause. He has a very miserbake life there but Nyneve is his saving grace and she gives him a puppy that Mordred names Gull. Gull is Mordreds only companion when Nyneve is not around.
Take My Soul
I hope I'm doing this right...
Mordred finds out who his father is, King Arthur, and sets out to meet him in hopes of Arthur acknowledging Mordred as his son. He meets Arthur and is asked to be a knight of the round table. Mordred discovers that Arthur set out the coracle full of babies all those years ago because Merlin, a sorcerer, told Arthur that a child would bring the end of his rule. Mordred is this child but does not wish to be a murderer.
The Bitter Sweet End
Can we just finish this already??
Mordred leaves to go on a journey to try to fight his fate. He speaks to the Lady of the Lake and she tells him that love is the answer. When his attempt at love fails, Mordred decides on an alternate plan. He will no longer try to fight his fate but instead give away his soul so he won't be devastated when or if he becomes a murderer.
Do I still get treats on this journey???
I have to fight this fate of mine Gull, I could not bare being a murderer.
Mordred decides to let Arthur keep his soul safe once it is out of his body. After taking out his soul, Mordred becomes very different. He does not care about things like he did before and he is no longer worried about fighting his fate. He doesn't feel sad or worried about what is to come or if anything happens to him in the process.
In the final battle, Mordred is stabbed by his farther Arthur but before he dies, he strikes Arthur in the head. Arthur does not die from this and we find him laying in bed very sick when a bird flies to the window of his bedchamber, it is Mordred in his afterlife. In Mordreds death he finally gets what he always wanted, Arthur to acknowledge Mordred as his son.
