Morgana soon learns that Merlin is attempting to get back his powers at the Crystal Cave; she travels to the cave where she uses her magic to trap Merlin in the cave for eternity. Arthur, Merlin, Gaius, Gwen and the knights manage to overthrow Morgana and Morgause when Merlin empties the Cup. Before the three travelers could reach Camelot, however, they were attacked by soldiers of Cenred, and Balinor sacrificed his life to save Merlin, dying in his son's arms. After two years in captivity, Morgana begins to lose her mind and she becomes mentally unstable as does a crippled Aithusa.

William "Will" (portrayed by Joe Dempsie) was a childhood friend of Merlin. Despite past problems and outside interference, their relationship continues to flourish. She killed Lady Helen, who was visiting Camelot to perform for Uther, and assumed Lady Helen's appearance. In a subsequent search of Gaius' workshop, an enchanted bracelet was found and taken as evidence of Merlin's guilt. Lancelot was eventually able to free the captive Gwen and led her through the lower levels of Hengist's stronghold while being pursued by several of the warlord's followers. This left Morgause trapped among the dead for good. When Merlin confronted Gilli about his attempt to kill Uther, even though he had been about to win the tournament, Gilli acknowledged that he had been wrong. In the next-to-last episode, "The Coming of Arthur, Part One", Arthur was sent on a mission to retrieve the Cup of Life from the Druids, unaware that Morgana and Morgause also sought it to use against Camelot. Note: All characters are listed in alphabetical order by their first name. 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. They venture to Camelot to take back what is rightfully Arthur's which results in Isolde's death. Over a year later, Morgause was still suffering from the injuries she'd suffered at Gaius and Merlin's hands. He is left for dead by Morgause shortly afterwards, but is rescued by the Great Dragon, and learns Morgana is now his nemesis. In exchange for her Healing Bracelet, Morgana asked him to kidnap and torture Gaiusto find out who Emrys really was. Elyan (portrayed by Adetomiwa Edun) was the younger brother of Gwen. Uther knew he was her father, but did not tell anybody this secret for at least 20 years. He first appears as a jousting partner for Arthur in "The Once and Future Queen" but pulls away when the Prince is blinded by light. She tells Gaius when he notices her worry that they can never be, but Gaius comforts her by telling her to never underestimate the power of love. Uther, Arthur and the others are shocked at Morgana’s betrayal. When other kings from rival kingdoms came to Camelot to sign a peace treaty, one of them brought his daughter Vivian. 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. He also provided the book of legends to Merlin which gave Merlin the idea of the sword that could kill the undead Black Knight. The actors had to have family boosting the ratings. Directed by Marco van Belle. The obvious bond that had grown between Lancelot and Gwen caused some jealousy from Arthur, who was also developing feelings for her. After escaping the castle, Elyan traveled back to Camelot with the others, taking over his father's blacksmith shop and living with Gwen. Merlin prevented them both from finishing the sacrifice and killing Arthur, using Sophia's discarded magical staff to kill both Aulfric and his daughter. Morgana finally corners Gwen and uses her magic to transform Gwen into a deer, as Arthur is hunting in the woods and will kill Gwen unknowingly on sight. Edwin Muirden (portrayed by Julian Rhind-Tutt) was a sorcerer who wore the guise of a physician. She appears only once, in Series 5's episode "With All My Heart", after Queen Guinevere is possessed by a spell cast by Morgana. Upon learning that the troll was an imposter, Gaius and Merlin attempted to get rid of her, but were unable to stop her from marrying Uther and having herself crowned Queen of Camelot at the conclusion of "Beauty and the Beast, Part One". However, she didn't understand Uther’s hatred for magic, and did not favour his reaction of killing those with magic. Annis is a fierce, strong and courageous woman who, while grieving her husband's death, immediately rose up in defiance to declare war on Caerleon's killer, Arthur Pendragon. Gwaine saw somebody going along the tunnels and he followed them. Merlin Season 6 Cast! Being forced to work in Morgana's mine, Gwaine was almost killed by Saxons. Several years later, Odin helps in a plot with Morgana by kidnapping King Rodor to lure Arthur into a trap. Morgana faces Gwen once more, as the two battle. The series focuses on his relationship with Arthur, which is comically portrayed with the prince always rudely teasing Merlin, who avoids suspicion of his powers by appearing dim-witted, which is aided by occasional genuine clumsiness. Morgana did not stop her attacks until she herself was killed by Merlin. By way of her telepathic connection, he is able to sense that she has been stung by a giant scorpion and needs help. Arthur was born in Camelot to Uther and Ygraine Pendragon with help of magic by the sorceress and priestess, Nimueh. Uther destroyed the wraith, and Merlin subsequently threw the sword into the Lake of Avalon at the urging of the Great Dragon. At the end of Series 3, he is imprisoned by Morgana and tortured, but is eventually rescued by Arthur and his knights with Merlin. So due to his compassion, Arthur and his remaining knights try to get there, but openly (not for Morgana) using Annis' kingdom instead. Some time later, he took Morgana, the supposedly orphaned daughter of his close friends Gorlois and Vivianne to raise as his ward alongside Arthur. Balinor brought the dragon to Camelot, but they were then betrayed and Uther imprisoned the creature in the caverns beneath the city. The young king ends up very disappointed by the reunion; Uther disagrees with almost all of the changes Arthur has made, including the knighting of common-born men, the very idea of the Round Table and crowning Guinevere queen. Tauren (portrayed by Cal Macaninch) was a sorcerer who led a gang of renegade wizards with the aim of bringing down Uther Pendragon. He knows that Merlin's destiny far surpasses his own and is also very familiar with the Great Dragon. "The Once the Future Queen" again displays Gwen's ability to stand up to Arthur as when he stays at her house pretending to be a commoner, Gwen becomes aggravated when Arthur is nothing but rude to her. Edwin attempted to kill Gaius using flames, likely an attempt to mirror the flames Gaius had consigned Edwin's parents to, but Merlin appeared and stopped him. "Secrets and Magic: Witch Hunt" twice referred to Gaius as Merlin's uncle—probably meaning Hunith's brother. Knight Valiant (portrayed by Will Mellor) was a knight from the Western Isles, who came to Camelot to battle in the annual sword-fighting tournament. In the episode "The Secret Sharer", seeking the true identity of Emrys, Morgana engaged his services in exchange for the healing bracelet Morgause had given her in the second season. The third season opened with Arthur and Merlin embarking on various missions to find the missing Morgana. Due to his powers as a Dragonlord, Merlin is able to hatch her, and her status as a White Dragon is taken as a sign of good fortune by Kilgarragh. Balinor was forced to flee Ealdor and left Hunith behind, unaware that she was pregnant with hi… In the episode, Alice returned to Camelot, supposedly hoping to see Gaius again. When they made a potion for Elena they had to use Gaius as bait to keep Grunhilda away from her so then they could give Elena the potion without Grunhilda seeing. Mordred's Sword is then forged in the breath of the White Dragon Aithusa. In the fourth season's two-part finale, "The Sword in the Stone", Elyan was captured, along with Gaius and Gawain, when Morgana again took over Camelot. He blamed Uther for his sister's death in childbirth and was killed by Uther in a duel to the death. He was saved by a magical creature, and soon joined Percival, Arthur, Merlin and other captured knights in a bid for freedom. Merlin ended its 5-year run in 2012. Julius Borden (portrayed by James Callis) used to be a pupil of Gaius, before they parted during the Great Purge leaving Gaius in trouble. This crisis also revealed that Gaius was aware of Merlin's visits to the Dragon. Although she killed Halig, Arthur was able to mortally wound her beast form, the creature only escaping after Merlin caused a distraction by causing a gargoyle statue to fall over, creating a path for her to escape the knights and retreat down to the catacombs. Morgana finds where they are heading and attacks them, hoping to watch Arthur die slowly, but Merlin kills her. When Arthur proposes to Gwen, Morgana destroys their relationship by using Lancelot's shade and Gwen is banished. Extra bright candles were brought in order to provide light. Shortly afterwards, Lancelot willingly gives up his life to end the threat of the Dorocha. She accepted, but their engagement was destroyed when Morgana revived an amnesiac Lancelot, bound him to her service, and ordered him to seduce Gwen with the help of an enchanted bracelet. In the first episode, "The Darkest Hour, Part One", Arthur found Camelot under threat when Morgana sacrificed a dying Morgause to release the Dorocha, the spirits of the dead, to wreck her revenge on the kingdom. King Odin (portrayed by Fintan McKeown) is the ruler of a kingdom neighboring Camelot. Merlin then tries to save Arthur by taking him to Avalon, where it's hoped the magic from the sword used to stab Arthur could be lifted. The Filmmaker’s Podcast #173: Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot Special Making Of – Part 2, 24 June 2020 He helps the pair escape the Saxons, but as Mordred follows them, Merlin uses magic to make the passage over a cliff impossible. In the premiere episode of the fourth series, "The Darkest Hour", Lancelot still held his position as a knight and was one of those who accompanied Arthur in the quest to close the veil between the realms of the living and the dead, which had been torn open by Morgana in her quest for revenge against Camelot. Merlin eventually saves the egg and hatches it, naming the new dragon Aithusa. When she was able to capture the Cup of Life from Arthur, Merlin, and Gawaine, Morgana used it to make Cenred's army immortal and thus unstoppable. He subsequently sent the magical snakes after Ewan and he was bitten again, this time fatally to death. Cornelius Sigan (portrayed by Mackenzie Crook when possessing Cedric's body) was the greatest sorcerer Camelot had ever known. In the finale episode, "The Last Dragonlord", Arthur was yet again called upon to defend Camelot against overwhelming odds. According to Balinor, the Great Dragon was known to all Dragonlords as Kilgharrah. An apparition of Ygraine appears in "The Sins of the Father", in which Arthur learns the secret of his birth through Morgause, with Ygraine claiming that Uther went to Nimueh without her knowledge and in full awareness that her life would be the price paid for Arthur's birth. He ran with them, carrying a sword. Morgana's Saxon Army prepares to attack the forces of Camelot at Camlann, Mordred is sent to lead part of the army through a secret pass to attack Camelot's forces. Cenred (portrayed by Tom Ellis) was the ruler of a neighboring kingdom of Camelot's, the kingdom that held Merlin's home village, Ealdor, as in the first-season episode, "The Moment of Truth", Uther stated that the safety of Ealdor was "Cenred's responsibility". Mary Collins (portrayed by Eve Myles) was a sorceress and the antagonist of the episode "The Dragon's Call". When faced with the choice of either ending the attack or losing Morgana, Morgause ultimately chose to save her half-sister's life over destroying Uther. Uther is critically wounded, and Merlin attempts to heal him with magic, but is unsuccessful, as unbeknownst to him, Morgana and Agravaine have placed a necklace on Uther to make Merlin's magic harmful. Twenty years prior to the events of the series, Uther had outlawed magic and killed every dragon (in Camelot) but one, whom he spared to serve as an example. Their efforts would ultimately come to nothing. As she died, she thanked Merlin for making her feel loved again, promising to repay his kindness one day.

Morgana claims that she is immortal due to her status as a High Priestess, but her arrogance allows Merlin to stab her, the Old Religion offering no defence against the enchanted sword. Some time later, Morgause yet again met with Morgana within Camelot. Agravaine kept his cover as a seemingly loyal kinsman to Arthur until the penultimate episode, "The Sword and the Stone, Part One", when he cleared the way for Morgana and the warlord, Helios, to invade Camelot, even joining in the fighting during the battle. In the first series episode "Lancelot", he travelled to Camelot in the hope of becoming a knight of Camelot. Tom made the sword which became Excalibur when the Great Dragon gave it magical powers for Arthur's use. Gaius nobly decides to offer his life of her behalf. With Gwen's relationship with Morgana having cooled after Morgana's return to Camelot and her new allegiance to Morgause, Gwen has begun to spend more time with Merlin, assisting him when he was accused of sorcery while Gaius was possessed by a goblin. However, Nimueh makes no comment on the matter and the spell instead takes the life of Merlin's mother. Gaius recognized what had been done to him and was able to save him, but he was left weak from his ordeal. Morgana, it transpires, has been mortally wounded in the battle and escapes the castle. Although Merlin and Gwen were able to break Arthur's enchantment, Vivian apparently remained in love with Arthur as she departed Camelot; it is unknown if the spell will wear off over time or she will be forever be under its effects. Sigan then unleashed a raven-like monster (Sigan's name meaning 'raven' in the language of the Old Religion) and animated the citadel's gargoyles to destroy Camelot. Morgana prepares to use her magic to kill Arthur once and for all, however she soon realises that her powers have gone (unbeknowest to her, Merlin sneaked into the castle and placed an enchanted doll under Morgana's bed to drain her off her magic whilst she slept). After the fight, Elyan, Leon and a few other surviving knights returned to Camelot and told Gwen what happened. Although Gwaine appeared to be essentially a drunken flirt, running up at least one large tavern bill during his time in Camelot while flirting casually with Gwen, he demonstrated a strong opinion of right and wrong, stating that nobility should be defined by what they did rather than who they were by birth, as well as an exceptional ability at sword-fighting that impressed even Arthur. 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. Agravaine smuggles Arthur's sword to Morgana who uses her magic to enchant the sword to bear the weight of a thousand ages. 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. Merlin therefore assumes the role of The Dolma, an elderly, reclusive sorceress who has trouble getting clothes and who is the alleged guardian of the lake. 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. Uther has even shown a willingness to overlook his discoveries of past occasions where Gaius has disobeyed him, such as when Gaius revealed that he smuggled Morgana's half-sister, Morgause out of Camelot rather than allowing her to die, despite the fact that Uther would have killed anyone else who disobeyed him in such a manner. After Isolde catches Arthur and Merlin watching their camp, Tristan allows them to travel with the smugglers for the time being. Tristan is devastated when Isolde is wounded and agrees to allow Merlin to treat her in Ealdor. In the fourth-season premiere, "The Darkest Hour, Part One", her village was attacked by the Dorocha, the spirits of the dead. It was left uncertain as to Cedric's ultimate fate. After killing Agravaine, Merlin visits the Dragon for help in assisting Arthur (devastated after the betrayal of Agravaine) in proving to himself that he can be the king that Camelot so desperately needs. When faced with the choice of either him or Merlin drinking poison to stop the curse, Arthur took the responsibility upon himself, refusing to let Merlin or Camelot die because of him. When they arrived at the Isle, however, Lancelot willingly took Merlin's place, both to fulfill the promise he'd made to Gwen and also to keep Merlin alive, who was Arthur's chief and most effective protector. Gwen was subsequently banished from Camelot and Lancelot imprisoned. Mordred is allowed to accompany the King to meet the Disir, and is consequently fatally injured protecting his King. Arthur and Merlin go into hiding until Agravaine locates them. During the battle, Morgana activates the enchantment, and it momentarily seems that Arthur may lose as Annis's and Arthur's armies watch on in shock, however Arthur miraculously wins. However, Gwen reveals that she will not hang Sefa as she is just trying to capture Ruadan who she will hope will come rescue his daughter. This would prove difficult since according to the knight's code of Camelot, only noblemen could become knights. They decided they would investigate Ruadan's castle, but using Annis' land approaching Ruadan from the West instead of the South. Arthur did not remain regent of Camelot long after this when Uther was struck down by an assassin trying to kill Arthur in "The Wicked Day". James also guest-starred as Edgar in the fourth season of the Emmy Award winning political thriller television series Homeland in 2014. Agravaine survives the initial attack and realises Merlin must be Emrys, the sorcerer Morgana has dreamt of. In the fourth season, Elyan continued to serve as a knight of Camelot, and seemed to have developed an especially close friendship with Percival. In the hope of restoring Arthur's faith, Merlin led him to where he had hidden Excalibur, telling him that "according to legend" only the true king of Camelot could pull the sword from the stone. They then mutually decided that they would not go through with the marriage if they were only there out of duty, rather than love. He led them and Merlin, who insisted on accompanying him, out into a field beyond Camelot to engage the dragon. Elyan's sudden attack on the king was at first thought to have been motivated by anger over Gwen's earlier banishment, but it was later discovered that he truly was being possessed. But, it turned out that Sefa was in fact Ruadan's daughter and she had been placed in Camelot as a mole for Ruadan. Gwen did so, but with Arthur's cooperation so that they might attempt to rescue her brother. Taliesin (portrayed by Karl Johnson) was a seer over three centuries before the events of the show. Although Gaius was happy to be reunited with her, Merlin soon discovered that she was under the influence of a manticore, which Alice had summoned in the hope of using its dark magic for good. 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". On hearing Leon's story Uther realises that the legendary Cup of Life is in the druids' possession. After their battle she is left unconscious. When she introduces herself she admits that she thinks Merlin is brave and a real hero, and it's the beginning of an attraction that develops over series 1. However their conversation is overheard by a sleeping Morgana. Arthur sees this as an act of war and is forced to prevent Morgana from reaching anywhere near Camelot by choosing to meet her forces at Camlann, the battlefield where Arthur is destined to die. Along with Kilgarragh the Great Dragon, Aithusa is the only other living dragon left in existence. Merlin is understandably drawn in by Borden's news, and promises to help him. Percival arrived too late to save him, having broken free of his bindings after hearing Gwaine's screams. She was believed to have been trained in the ways of the priestesses, explaining her strong and skillful magical abilities, which ultimately made her a deadly enemy to Camelot. At Morgana's orders, Mithian unwillingly lures Arthur on a mission to rescue her imprisoned father, however Morgana is thwarted once more when Arthur manages to rescue Rodor and Odin forms an alliance with Arthur. Merlin soon forged a seal of nobility and introduced Lancelot to Guinevere, who helped by creating clothes suitable for the son of a lord. Morgause's exact parentage is uncertain. Merlin realises Morgana is the source of the enchantment, and therefore is forced to poison her to leverage Morgause. Elyan was one of the four subsequently knighted in recognition of his loyalty to Camelot, despite his lack of noble birth. He also inquired as to the whereabouts of Magic and Strength, demonstrating some element of foresight as these were later shown to be Merlin and Gwaine respectively. Gwaine quickly shouted before Agravaine could do any harm to Gaius. Alator uses his magic to attack Morgana when she questions Alator on who Emrys is. He later became involved in a plot by a sorcerer, Tauren, to perform alchemy using the legendary Philosopher's Stone (referred to in dialogue as the "Mage Stone"). Gwen is later told by Sir Leon that if the King dies, the closest heir to his throne is her and she will be the ruler of Camelot. Gwaine returned when Merlin sought his assistance when Arthur went on a quest to the realm of the Fisher King, Morgana having given Arthur an enchanted bracelet that would drain his life-energy and make him weak. The two fell in love, but Uther eventually discovered Balinor's whereabouts and sent men to arrest him. Several years before, he fought in the Battle of Denaria and survived which implies that he was skilled in battle. When Morgana finds out Agravaine and her army were wiped out by a dragon before they could get to Arthur, she claims it is the work of Emrys. Grettir was exceptionally skilled in the magical arts as he was able to turn Gwaine's sword into a flower and back again when he was threatened as well as disappearing and reappearing and he may have some powers in foresight (The Eye of the Phoenix). He returns in "The Witch's Quickening" when he, allied with a group of renegades, seeks an ancient crystal with the ability to show the future, but he is forced to flee when the bandits are discovered. For a moment, Gwaine saw the traitor that Agravaine was, but then Agravaine reassured him. In "The Darkest Hour, Part One", Elyan rescued Percival as he fled from the rampaging Dorocha, carrying several children. At this time, Arthur was again thoroughly demoralized by the betrayal of a family member. Stricken with grief, Uther outwardly blamed sorcery for his wife's death, and vowed revenge on all forms of magic. At the end of season four, Agravaine guided part of Helios' army through the siege tunnels and started the attack on Camelot, and some soldiers went above on the ground. Cinematographer shot the entire film using only natural light. Arthur chooses to spare Mordred's life, much to Merlin's anger. Arthur was visibly relieved to have her home again, even hugging her, but remained unaware that in the year that she had been gone, Morgana had switched sides and was allied with Morgause to bring down Uther and Camelot. Sophia (portrayed by Holliday Grainger) was a beautiful young woman who appeared in Camelot with her elderly father, Aulfric. Morgana abducts Guinevere and imprisons her in the Dark Tower, where the evil sorceress begins to emotionally torture the Queen against her friends. A sorrowful Arthur departs, but inadvertently allows his father's spirit to escape the Otherworld when he looks back at him. Taunting Arthur of his impending death, Morgana is oblivious to Merlin, armed with Excallibur, sneaking up behind her. He rides to Camlann, the site of the battle between Camelot and the Saxons, and under the disguise of Dragoon the Great uses magic never before seen to aid Camelot's victory. 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. Once Helios' army of Southrons is finally up to strength, him and Morgana attack Camelot as Agravaine opens the siege tunnels to allow Morgana's army to pour right into the citadel.
