Scene one opens with grave deed. Merlin, the sorcerer has convinced King Arthur to kill 40 baby boys by sending them to sea in a coracle. They do this in attempt to stop fate from taking king Arthur's life by way of his son. For Arthur has committed a grave sin and fathered Mordred via his half sister! Gross I know.
Scene 4: That bird is a liar.
I am totally innocent, and you should really let me go. I will not do any evil.... at all.
Scene two opens with Mordred, led by Nyneve, meeting his lady mother and her family. They are not kind to him. The only one who shows him any semblance of kindness is his aunt Morgan Le Fay, who wants him to kill his father! His only solace is the bratchet pup Nyneve gave to him that is and extension of her soul. All of this ways heavily on him until he travels to Camelot to meet his father and start his knightly quest.
Scene 5: More betrayal and I no longer have a soul
Caw Caw your soul is mine!
Never trust a druid my boy.
Scene two follows Mordred pursuing his love Lynette. Unfortunately he runs into his family who call him by name. Lynette is disgusted and rejects him. Then his brothers find their mother in bed with a son of the man who killed their father. They kill both her and her lover. Mordred goes off in search of Merlin to further discover his fate.
Scene 6: Welcome to Avalon.
In scene four Gull and Mordred find a bird in a cage. Mordred decides to let him go, deciding it was the right thing to do. Unfortunately for him it was really Merlin!
Scene five has Merlin escaping and killing Nyneve. With his confidant gone Mordred finds a Druid to give his soul to his father for safe keeping. However, just as the soul is escaping his body the Druid's raven stole the soul! Without a soul Mordred fights his father and mortally wounds him.
Today is not my day!
Scene six opens on Avalon. King Arthur is now recuperating, and is being watched over by his now raven-son. He finally honors Mordred by calling him, "My son." How sweet!
