  • From his very incarnation, Mordred has been a pawn in Camelot's history. Prophesied by Merlin that he will grow up to kill his father, King Arthur.

  • Welcome.
  • One day, a sorceress arrives at their cottage by the sea. The sorceress, Nyneve, tells the family that she's taking Mordred away to live with his real mother.

  • Last Battle
  • You must die now!
  • When Mordred turns fifteen he goes to Camelot to serve as a Knight of the Round Table. His hopes die immediately when he learns that he can't tell the king who he is. He must pretend to be someone else. while staying in Camelot, Mordred realizes that his father is a good man who only wants to protect his kingdom from ill fortune. Mordred doesn't know what he can say or do to prove to his father that he has no intention of killing him. He knows he's supposed to, because that's what the prophecy says, but he doesn't want to. He just wants to be loved.
  • That's my father.
  • Mordred becomes consumed with avoiding his destiny. He decides that there must be a way to escape fate, and he sets out to find someone who can help him change the future. Any sorcerers he encounters all tell him the same thing—you cannot change destiny, no matter how awful it is. Mordred decides his only option is to stay away from his father entirely. When he meets Merlin, Merlin shows him a vision of the future that is to come. It is so violent and despairing that Mordred knows there’s nothing he can do to change it. At this point, Mordred accepts the role of murderer.
  • I know a wasy to save us both.
