Behind the Scenes Gaius councils Arthur to keep the horn safe. Gaius later apologises to Merlin for not trusting him enough to recognize friend from foe. He and Merlin managed to destroy the Manticore when Gaius used magic to blow up the box that allowed the Manticore to come from its own world into theirs. Gaius and Arthur shared a mutual respect for each other and Arthur knew Gaius well enough to realise when he was being possessed by a goblin (Goblin's Gold). Morgana has also abducted many of Arthur's knights and is using them as slaves to help her in her plans. Arhur manages to kill Helios and defeat the Southrons as he wins back Camelot. Mad with grief, Uther convinced himself Nimueh knew the enchantment would kill his wife, and began the Great Purge to destroy all magic in the world. Anhora (portrayed by Frank Finlay) is the guardian of the unicorns. In "The Castle of Fyrien", Elyan and Gwen were reunited when Cenred and Morgause kidnapped the siblings in order to capture Arthur. She ultimately fled, leaving Arthur once again in control of Camelot. He also never tried to change Uther's mind in regard to magic but manipulated him. Merlin and the others find a village which was slaughtered on the outskirts of Queen Annis's kingdom. Gwen to Gaius upon finding out Morgana was using dark magic. He does identify her as a member of the Bendrui: a sisterhood of nine sorceresses with immense power. With the Great Dragon freed and repeatedly attacking Camelot, Arthur and Merlin set off in the faint hope that they could secure the aid of the last living Dragonlord, Balinor, who was also, unbeknownst to Arthur, Merlin's father. How old a man can grow and yet change so little. In exchange for teaching Merlin a powerful spell, the Dragon forces Merlin to promise that he will one day be freed. Morgause is badly injured at the hands of Merlin and Gaius, and Morgana violently lashes out, teleporting them away. With her greatest threat left powerless, Morgana and Mordred begin their invasion of Camelot by attacking a nearby garrison. It is Arthur's victory that sees Annis end her alliance with Morgana, who is accused of being more like Uther than she would like to think herself not to be. He often provides Merlin with advice and was the one who provided him with his first magic spellbook. When Merlin used magic to spear a wild boar that attacked Arthur during a hunt, Cedric took credit for the kill and was rewarded with a position in the royal household. The season also marks the first time Morgana learns of "Emrys" (Merlin's alter-ego), who she identifies as "her destiny and doom". While Morgana was furious over this revelation and wished to exact revenge against Uther for decades of lies, Morgause preferred to consider the long-term ramifications of this information and urged her sister not to do anything rash. Has intensely dislikes the king because he believes taxes on the people are too high which has led him to smuggle. During a recent adventure where Gwen's estranged brother was captured by Cenred as a hostage to force her to lure Arthur into danger, the two appeared to begin a secret relationship, Arthur not-so-directly telling Gwen that he loved her, the two later kissing in private before Arthur departed on his quest to recover the trident of the Fisher King. After returning to Camelot, Arthur gathered together a group of knights to make a final assault in the hope of defeating the dragon, even over Uther's protests. According to Balinor, the Great Dragon was known to all Dragonlords as Kilgharrah. He is last seen during Arthur's and Guinevere's wedding while standing next to Merlin and together with the crowd shouting "Long live the Queen!". On the day of the treaty signing, Sarrum positions an assassin to kill Arthur. However, Gaius was in fact unaware that it was Arthur who had led the raiding party on the village and that he would be able to repent (A Herald of the New Age). After her son was executed for using magic, she threatened to kill Prince Arthur in revenge against the king. Elyan broke under the torture and revealed that Arthur was traveling to Ealdor and was locked in a cell with Gaius and Gawain. When the Great Purge began, however, Gaius was forced to help Alice flee Camelot by striking her name from Uther's lists and remaining behind to avoid drawing attention to his role in her escape. Sir Leon (portrayed by Rupert Young) is a knight of Camelot and something close to Arthur's second in command. Some time later Merlin questions his guardian about Guinevere's recent behaviour. While Uther sympathized with her, he could not do anything to help because her village was in another kingdom, and intervention from Camelot would constitute an act of … Arthur still isn't dissuaded but both he and Gaius agree that taking the western route (on Guinevere's suggestion) through Annis' land will take Morgana by surprise. However, Annis has also shown herself to be reasonable, rational and wise. Merlin cured him using magic, resulting in Gwen being blamed for causing the plague. Their initial relationship was rocky, as both had little understanding of each other and their different personalities clashed frequently. Sefa (portrayed by Sophie Rundle) was the servant of Queen Guinevere in "Arthur's Bane, Part One", the opening episode of Series 5, Sefa was caught listening to Camelot's councils meeting about how they would attack Izmir, Ruadan's (Ruadan had a brief alliance with Morgana) fortress, however Sefa claimed she was bringing in the Queen's dinner and was believed. Gaius persuaded Nimueh to kill him so that both Merlin and his mother could live. Along the way, Merlin was struck by one of the spirits after he threw himself in front of Arthur, and Arthur was visibly relieved when Merlin miraculously survived. After Camelot was Uther's again, Arthur trusted his four new knights (and Leon) on every mission he went on. Myror (portrayed by Adrian Lester) was an assassin/bounty hunter sent to kill Arthur by King Odin, whose son Arthur had killed in a duel. Gaius was a friend of Merlin’s father, Balinor and helped him escape from Camelot when Uther ordered the Dragon Lord’s execution, risking being executed himself by doing so. She does not return to Camelot in this episode, but she over hears Morgana's plans to kill Arthur. It was left uncertain as to Cedric's ultimate fate. Gaius guides Merlin through Camelot, acting as a mentor. Arthur pretended to leave Camelot on a journey, with the plan of entering a fake "knight" into Camelot's jousting tournament and then taking his place in the final, so as to win by Arthur's own skill and not just because he was a prince. In the second part of the episode, Lancelot and Merlin eventually raced after Arthur and the others to reach them before they arrived at the Isle of the Blessed, where the veil could be restored. Merlin finally admits that despite all warnings Arthur used the horn to contact Uther. "Let me go get you something to drink." Throughout the season, Merlin distrusts Agravaine, Arthur's uncle, who is in league with Morgana. The physician states that it's a victory prayer and that even though the druids were once peaceful the great purge changed that. Merlin rasped. He provided the Camelot records to Gaius which revealed the true identity of Edwin Muirden. However it required powerful magic to destroy a Manticore’s box, showing that Gaius had indeed grown stronger in magic. But then they were attacked by some Saxons. When Queen Annis declares war on Camelot after Arthur kills her husband, Morgana preys on Annis' grief and forms an alliance with Annis against Arthur and Camelot. Due to Gwen's status she has a tendency to be subservient, but she is seen to not be afraid of standing up for her beliefs and speaking her mind; a trait admired by most around her, particularly Arthur. I am so happy we are engaged. Merlin, you must promise me you'll never return to that place. Gaius immediately notices Merlin's strange behavour after Percival has left and questions his ward. Morgana succeeds in turning Gwen against Camelot, and Gwen returns to the castle where she makes numerous attempts on Arthur's life under Morgana's orders. Gaius tries to console his ward as best he can and advises Merlin to help him treat the wounded as he is a excellent physician. Guinevere and Gaius are shocked to learn that her husband's party was ambushed she concludes that once again there is a traitor in Camelot. After Guinevere is nearly killed Arthur accepts that his father is haunting Camelot and requests Gaius' aid. Arthur also traveled to Merlin's home village of Ealdor to defend it from raiders in the episode, "The Moment of Truth", proving again that he cared more about Merlin than he generally let on. Morgana has Gaius and Gawain imprisoned and leads a manhunt in pursuit of a fleeing Arthur, however he manages to evade her. He desired the Fisher King's kingdom to be returned to its former glory. In the second-season premiere, "The Curse of Cornelius Sigan", it was revealed that he was executed for his use of evil magic. Noting that Merlin's clemency reflected what he would become in future, the Dragon agreed, speculating that his and Merlin's paths will cross again. During the battle he was either unhorsed by Kilgarrah's tail or caught in the flames, but nevertheless, he survived. Gaius seems to have a very good relationship with Hunith, Merlin’s mother. Morgana, it transpires, has been mortally wounded in the battle and escapes the castle. Later he mysteriously returns to Camelot with news of a magical secret that threatens to change the landscape of the kingdom forever. Guinevere 'comforts' Gaius after Merlin has been arrested for treachery. Olaf has a daughter, Vivian, who along with Arthur, was enchanted by King Alined and Trickler so that they would fall in love and provoke Uther and Olaf to war. They are brought to Gaius' chambers for treatment. They found him living in a cave, away from civilization. When Gaius inevitably gave in and told Alator Emrys' true identity as well as the prophecies about him, Alator switched sides, rescuing Merlin from Morgana by knocking her out. She discovers Merlin and Arthur (who is under one of Merlin's spells) and holds a sword up to them. First of all, according to legend, Arthur is not dead but mearly sleeping in Avalon which is a mystical place ruled by The Lady of the Lake. Additionally, he has a great knowledge of sorcery and the legends associated with it, having studied and practised it for many years before the Great Purge. When questioned, he explains his time is drawing to a close. Merlin and Freya began to fall in love. Recently, Gaius was captured by Alator, a powerful warrior and sorcerer. As she died, she thanked Merlin for making her feel loved again, promising to repay his kindness one day. Elyan came with them. Aulfric bargained with the Sidhe elders for Sophia to return, and they ordered that she sacrifice the soul of a mortal prince to appease the elders. They share a kiss when it seems Lancelot will not return from fighting the bandits. Gwaine was also part of the battle which never took place where Arthur defeated Caerleon's champion, creating peace between Arthur and Annis. Kara was part of a Saxon cohort which attacked a supply wagon headed for Camelot under the orders of Morgana Pendragon, whose cause Kara was dedicated to as she believed Morgana fought for the freedom of those with magic. The parchment speaks of the final battle between Morgana's forces and Camelot's army on the plain of Camlann, and that Arthur will be slain there. He is often called upon to get Merlin out of trouble or to remind him not to be reckless with the use of magic. Sir Percival (portrayed by Tom Hopper) is a friend of Lancelot who accompanied him after Merlin sent a message requesting Lancelot's aid after Morgana's takeover of Camelot. Gaius knew Nimueh well as they practised magic together before the Great Purge. After inheriting Balinor's power upon his father's death, Merlin was able to command the Dragon and, it is implied, gained the necessary magic to hurt him, but, instead of killing him, Merlin ordered the Dragon to leave Camelot. Just as Morgana is about to kill Gwen, Merlin uses his magic to cause the ceiling to collapse, blasting Morgana unconscious. Her singing put the entire royal court into an enchanted sleep except Merlin, and he stopped her from killing Arthur by causing a chandelier to fall on her body. She is now self-exiled from Camelot and is in hiding with a crippled Morgause. Caerleon was also very stubborn and proud as he refused to sign a peace treaty and appear weak, even when his life was threatened. A dying Morgana is taken to Gaius' chambers where he reveals to a devastated Uther that Morgana has fractured her cranium, and she may die soon. When Merlin returned from a patrol and spoke to Gaius of a mysterious abandoned village deep in the forest, Gaius warned him that it was in fact a Druid shrine, erected for the sake of a troubled soul to appease it after an unjust death. The servant in charge of looking after the castle's stables is suspected. The Witchfinder correctly suspects Merlin, Gaius and Morgana - his methods are unscrupulous, and in private conversation, it's intimated his techniques were more about power over people, specifically indicated in how he gets Gaius to 'confess'; he told Gaius that he knows Morgana also has magic of some sort, yet never voices this discovery to Uther. Uther's new dominion was allied with Gawant, the kingdom of his old friend Lord Godwyn. Annis also saw Morgana for what she was far more astutely than most, proclaiming that she was far more like her father than she would care to admit. The obvious bond that had grown between Lancelot and Gwen caused some jealousy from Arthur, who was also developing feelings for her. The two friends finds themselves quarreling yet again about Mordred's trustworthiness. Gwaine then demanded that Morgana give them food, particularly for the aged and ailing Gaius. Merlin eventually saves the egg and hatches it, naming the new dragon Aithusa. He was loyal to Uther, despite the methods the king used to deal with sorcerers and the use of magic. On more than one occasion in "The Hunter's Heart", he even threatened to send Merlin to join Gwen in exile. Uther reveals to Gaius in secret that Morgana is in fact Uther's daughter; when Gorlois was away in battle, his wife Vivienne grew lonely which led to an affair between her and Uther, the product being Morgana. Gilli decides to compete in the tournament using his full range of skills, his magic being focused through a ring that his father had once possessed. He believed that the draughts, which essentially drugged her so that she could not dream, were the best treatment, and was angry when Merlin argued with him about it. Merlin noted that Gaius could have left with her, but Gaius had decided to stay in order to look after Merlin. Gwaine was one of four knights who were knighted the day before the overthrow of Morgause's immortal army. However Gwen who is being kept in the camp overhears Morgana and Helios' plans and flees the camp before she is killed. In the second season, Arthur's relationships with Merlin and Morgana's maidservant, Guinevere, deepen. However, Gaius attempted to make a deal with Aredian to prevent Merlin and Morgana from being executed along with him. Knowing that the spell would not end naturally until the wraith had killed Uther, Merlin had the Great Dragon burnish a sword with his fire to create a weapon that could kill the wraith, forging Excaliber. Please.” I sighed and was about to reply but Merlin started laughing hysterically. Alice (ex-fiancee)Gaius's Mother † (mother)Hunith (younger sister)[1]Merlin (nephew) Uther knocks out Arthur, but Merlin reveals his magic and drives Uther away briefly. However, the following morning she became embarrassed when it became clear that Arthur had heard her. Tauren (portrayed by Cal Macaninch) was a sorcerer who led a gang of renegade wizards with the aim of bringing down Uther Pendragon. Morgana, however, had a change of heart as Uther apologised to her for ordering Tom's execution. Defeated, Morgana was left to flee Camelot with her sister's unconscious body, though not before Morgana swore that the crusade against Camelot had "just begun". Hunith feared the repercussions Merlin would face should his powers be discovered by Uther or his men. In the physician's care Mithian soon recovers. By way of her telepathic connection, he is able to sense that she has been stung by a giant scorpion and needs help. The precise truth of this bargain was never answered beyond doubt in the show, so it is possible the apparition was Ygraine's real spirit, or an illusion partly or entirely devised by Morgause. He and Merlin fought fiercely together, and Lancelot was eventually wounded in the chamber that housed the Cup. Merlin then used his magic to send the boat out into the lake and set it alight finally giving Lancelot's soul peace. Arthur is forced to execute Kara as an enemy of Camelot; it is this action which drives Mordred against Camelot and fuels him to join Morgana. Seemingly at her end, Morgana greets death however the dragon Aithusa arrives and breaths back life into Morgana. But he also knows that there are times when the Dragon’s assistance is needed. Gaius was not afraid to speak up to Arthur, and like Merlin, addressed him by his name alone on many occasions and not his title. While Merlin sincerely wants to help her, the warnings of his guardian and Kilgarrah hamstring his intentions, and his fears eventually impact on their relationship; but he advised her to visit the Druids and she does, where one confirms her worst fear - she has magic. Uther remains unaware of Merlin's hand in protecting the kingdom, often from enemies seeking revenge for his cruelty, not least Nimueh and the Great Dragon. However, Gaius suspected the correspondence was not as it seemed, but could not explain how. Furthermore, Edwin threatened to tell Uther about Merlin practising magic if Gaius told Uther about his own use of magic. Gwaine caused quite a bit of trouble during his stay in Camelot, attempting to charm Guineverein the marketplace (who politely turned him down) and buying drinks for all the other tavern patrons despite the fact that he had no money. It was revealed in Merlin: Secrets and Magic that Freya will somehow return and aid Merlin on his adventures. Gwen is at first smitten by him, but their friendship soon becomes platonic. As Merlin looks on hopefully, the Great Dragon flew in an obvious rage, subsequently attacking Camelot at night for the next three days in revenge. He was only stopped when Merlin intervened, who tearfully claimed that Morgause had been lying and faked the story. At the end of Series 3, he is imprisoned by Morgana and tortured, but is eventually rescued by Arthur and his knights with Merlin. It emerged that Sophia and Aulfric were Sidhe, magical creatures exiled from the land of eternal life and condemned to live as humans as penalty for Aulfric murdering another Sidhe. The only person who Gaius valued more was Merlin, whom he came to love like a son (A Remedy to Cure All Ills). Sigan then tried to possess him, but Merlin was able to imprison Sigan's soul back in the jewel with the help of a spell given to him by the Great Dragon. Mordred's Sword is then forged in the breath of the White Dragon Aithusa. Gaius explained that in order for the spirit to be put to rest, the perpetrator of the injustice done to it must show true remorse so the soul could move on to the next world. In the hours that followed, Lancelot swore to stand and fight beside Arthur in recognition of the lessons the prince had taught him about the honor involved in being a knight, and also stating that he believed in the world that Arthur would build once he became king. She whispers that she thought she'd lost Arthur, her open affection surprising him slightly. Gaius also seems to have known the Great Dragon for at least twenty years (A Remedy to Cure All Ills) and trusts his advice, but when Merlin told him that the Great Dragon cared only for himself, he did not protest, suggesting he too had reason to believe that beforehand. In the episode 'Gates of Avalon', Gaius talks to Morgana about her being a seer, but this is never addressed by them again. Several years before, he fought in the Battle of Denaria and survived which implies that he was skilled in battle. The four eventually made it to Ealdor, where Arthur was treated for his wounds and had a brief moment of reconciliation with Gwen, who had since come to stay with Merlin's mother, Hunith. Gwaine subsequently joined the two on their quest to recover the Cup of Life, but the Cup is lost during a subsequent attack by Cenred's forces. Merlin becomes friends with Lady Morgana, the King's Ward, and Guinevere (Gwen), her maid. Gaius is the tritagonist in the BBC series Merlin.He is the Court Physician of Camelot and has been for the last twenty-seven to twenty-nine years, since the birth of Arthur Pendragon.Additionally, he has a great knowledge of sorcery and the legends associated with it, having studied and practised it for many years before the Great Purge. Gaius (Richard Wilson) may have dropped a heavy hint at the battlefront, but Gwen's been given plenty of clues about Merlin before. Anhora took that opportunity to kidnap Merlin, making the warlock part of Arthur's final test. He therefore asked Merlin to go in his stead, trusting in his abilities as a physician. It was only after Edwin’s attempt to kill Uther, and Merlin stopping him from attempting to kill Gaius, that he was once again restored to his post. In the morning, Saxons threaten to kill the pair, but then Mordred appears and saves them. When Edwin Muirden manipulated Uther into believing Gaius was no longer capable of his job, Gaius was removed from his post as court physician. Gaius tells Merlin she suffers from nightmares, and the young warlock often brought her the physician's latest sleeping draught. In "The Darkest Hour, Part One", Elyan rescued Percival as he fled from the rampaging Dorocha, carrying several children. Shortly after this he was found by Agravaine, who put a knife to his throat, but Gwaine's timely arrival foiled his plans to kill Gaius. After Daegal's burial Gaius agrees that Guinevere has been enchanted somehow by Morgana and that they must reverse it. The physician states that it was forged in Helva but other than that he knows nothing about it. From then on, Merlin continually thwarts Morgana's schemes, even devising an alter-ego "Dragoon the Great" to save Guinevere from accusations of seducing Arthur with magic. On the Isle of the Blessed, he met Nimueh whom he had known before the Great Purge. Gaius later told Arthur that he loved him and Arthur thought of Gaius as a member of his own family having known him ever since he was born (The Secret Sharer). Morgana is enraged by Mordred's death and vows to get revenge. He casually asked about it, and Arthur stated that the bracelet was the token of someone dear to him, but Grettir did not set him straight and laughed before disappearing. Arthur comes to Leon's aid, allowing him to escape while Arthur fights Ruadan, but Ruadan almost knocks Arthur out. She later revealed to Arthur a suspect version of the truth of Arthur's conception and birth through the summoned spirit of Ygraine. The three men were eventually released by Percival and Leon when Arthur and his forces reclaimed Camelot. Gaius rarely was so soft spoken, unless he was being diplomatic. Gaius quickly deduced that the man died of a broken neck, but was puzzled as to why the man had no other broken bones if he had fallen from the tower. Gaius disobeyed the prince and arrived in Camelot in time to stop Morgause from killing Merlin, blasting her with a powerful spell and giving Merlin a chance to smash her against a pillar, wounding and perhaps indirectly being the cause of her death (The Darkest Hour). (The Secret Sharer.) After Arthur got almost knocked out, Elyan started fighting Ruadan, giving Merlin some lee-way to take Arthur to safety. Nimueh's life is taken in the place of Gaius, and he recovers soon afterwards. The physician understands that Arthur is curious about how Sarrum managed to capture and contain Morgana but again advises caution.When Merlin doesn't return as planned Gaius ask Arthur to send out a search party to locate his ward. Merlin and Gaius discuss Morgana's rights to the throne. Gaius lands Merlin in a spot of trouble when he claims that the old witch who lives near the cauldron is the only one who can reverse Morgana's magic. After Merlin, Arthur and the others returned to Camelot when Lancelot sacrificed himself to defeat the Dorocha, he and Merlin learned that Morgana was aware of Merlin’s identity as Emrys. As the final battle begins, Merlin encounters the Ghost of his Father and with his guidance, regains his magic. When Arthur proposes to Gwen, Morgana destroys their relationship by using Lancelot's shade and Gwen is banished. He had a brief alliance with Morgana. All episodes to date. Despite this Gaius remained in love with Alice. Morgana also gave him an enchanted bracelet to give to Gwen as a wedding present, as it would rekindle and magnify her previous feelings for Lancelot. On the night of her death, Gaius saw the Questing Beast, a magical creature of the Old Religion and an omen of misfortune. She killed Lady Helen, who was visiting Camelot to perform for Uther, and assumed Lady Helen's appearance. Gwen is a very good friend of Gaius's having known him since she was very young. Sir Leon saw the mini army, and told Gwaine to warn Arthur that they were under attack. When Merlin spoke with him about his use of magic, he explained that his father had been a sorcerer himself, but had never used his magic out of fear. She was arrested for witchcraft but later released, and joyfully reunited with her father. In the first series, Merlin becomes Arthur's retainer when he saves his life, and learns of the Great Dragon, who informs him of his destiny and advises him when Merlin faces exceptional magic. Chapter 1: Posing the Question, in which Gaius meets Hunith's son and has to ask himself what he should do with the boy who has enough power to either save Camelot, or destroy it. He was then killed by soldiers after she helped him to escape from the dungeons. Gaius asked her for magical help on Uther's behalf in order to make Ygraine conceiving a child, Arthur,  from Uther. This man's a shadow of his former self. However, this changes when she heals Morgana in "The Sword in the Stone: Part 2". Elena (portrayed by Georgia King) is a princess and daughter of Lord Godwyn, an old friend of Uther's. She tracks down Merlin and Arthur and uses her magic to defeat Merlin. The mysterious creature becomes Merlin's mentor in magic, telling he is destined to be Arthur's protector as he unites the land of Albion. Yeah, let's see a scene where Merlin gets to call out Gaius's.....rabbit problem - featuring, borderline not-PG innuendos, Gaius epically failing to explain to an innocent!Merlin, and poor, poor Arthur. The only person who Gaius valued more was Merlin, whom he came to love like a son (A Remedy to Cure All Ills). Grettir (portrayed by Warwick Davis) His purpose is to pretend to be a knight taking part in the tournament, when in reality Arthur will be jousting in his place. This reconciliation did not initially last, however, and in "The Sword in the Stone, Part Two", Arthur dismissed her, calling it "a moment of weakness." During the final of series four he sits in the dungeons with Elyan and Gawaine, where he lies depressed, weak and dying. He claimed to have seen visions of Merlin during his lifetime, hinting at Merlin's great destiny in the future. This came true in "The Coming of Arthur", when a vision of Freya appeared to Merlin in the water that the Fisher King had given Merlin, informing him that the sword Excalibur was hidden in the Lake of Avalon and that she would give it to him. I would give my life for you without a thought. She hires Alator of the Catha and orders him to kidnap Gaius who is forced to tell Alator that Merlin is Emrys. Taliesin (portrayed by Karl Johnson) was a seer over three centuries before the events of the show. Although Gaius was not initially an object of her hatred, he finally became one of her targets when trying to either take over or destroying Camelot and especially when she suspected that he knew of Emrys, leading to his kidnap. Merlin then uses his magic in combination with a sword of Medhir to break the chains holding him beneath Camelot. Although beast-Freya appeared calmer around Merlin, calming down simply from the sight of him even when surrounded by the knights, the wound Freya had sustained proved to be fatal, staying alive only long enough for Merlin to take her to the nearby lake. When Agravaine succeeds in passsing plans of Camelot's siege tunnels to Morgana, Morgana visits Helios' camp and passes the plans to her ally in preparation for their invasion of Camelot. Gaius then heads back to Camelot where he passes the royal seal to Guinevere thus allowing for her to become the ruling queen of the kingdom. Gaius also has a valued place in Uther's council, being one of the few people who dares to speak out against Uther's actions on crucial occasions, although Uther's prejudice against magic commonly blinds him to Gaius's good advice. Knowing that she was dying, she traveled with Morgana to the Isle of the Blessed where Morgause acted as a willing blood sacrifice to allow Morgana to unleash the Dorocha on the people of Camelot.
