He advises Merlin to keep Excalibur out of the hands of evil once he has retrieved it. Merlin consequently places it inside a stone. He returns at the beginning of the fourth season to help Merlin fight the Dorocha spirits released by Morgana.
He then shows huge respect to Lancelot, telling him that he will be the greatest of all Camelot's knights. Shortly afterwards, Lancelot willingly gives up his life to end the threat of the Dorocha.
When the mysterious hunter Julius Borden returned to Camelot to search for a dragon's egg, the Dragon warns Merlin to save it before Borden does any harm.
Merlin eventually saves the egg and hatches it, naming the new dragon Aithusa. When Morgana takes over Camelot with the warlord Helios , Merlin, Arthur, Gwen and two smugglers Tristan and Isolde are attacked by Agravaine and his army in Ealdor.
Hopelessly outnumbered, Merlin calls the Dragon who attacks Agravaine and his soldiers. 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.
Kilgharrah says that the destiny of Albion and Arthur lies only in Merlin's hands, inspiring him to have Arthur draw Excalibur from the stone. In the fifth series, Merlin only calls on the Great Dragon as a last resort, as Morgana relies on trickery as much as magic in her plots against Camelot.
When he summons Kilgharrah in the tenth episode, the dragon appears visibly injured as he helps Merlin evade Morgana. When questioned, he explains his time is drawing to a close.
In the final episode, he helps Merlin one last time by flying Merlin and Arthur to the isles of Avalon and confirms Arthur is dead.
To Merlin, Kilgharrah says that "in Albion's United Kingdom greatest need Arthur will rise again to fulfill his destiny", then Kilgharrah flies off and is not seen again.
The character is original to the television series, not existing in any previous Arthurian legend, although several tales exist of Merlin associating with dragons, particularly Dinas Emrys.
Also, a clearly different 'Great Dragon' appears in the film, Merlin , to whom Nimueh is almost sacrificed. Grettir portrayed by Warwick Davis Grettir is a mysterious dwarf Warlock who has many unknown powers.
Grettir guarded the bridge leading the way to The Fisher King's kingdom and anticipated the arrival of Arthur Pendragon, Merlin, and Gwaine.
He desired the Fisher King's kingdom to be returned to its former glory. When Arthur first arrived alone, Grettir met him on the bridge and knew him at once, referring to him as Courage.
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.
When Arthur crossed the bridge on his quest for the Trident, Grettir noticed the Phoenix Eye on his wrist and was evidently aware of its true purpose, though he made no attempt to warn Arthur of its detrimental effect.
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.
He then met Merlin and Gwaine when they followed Arthur to save him from the Phoenix Eye, identifying them as Magic and Strength. 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.
Grunhilda portrayed by Miriam Margolyes was a pixie who served as the nanny to Princess Elena, a changeling child who had been 'implanted' with a Sidhe when she was an infant, knowing that Elena's father, Lord Godwyn, would eventually seek to strengthen the ties between his kingdom and Camelot with a marriage between Elena and Arthur, and seeking to place a Sidhe queen on Camelot's throne.
Grunhilda's true nature was uncovered by Merlin and Gaius, Merlin subsequently destroying Grunhilda in a duel—although she was able to take an exceptional amount of damage from Merlin's staff, the staff he had kept from "The Gates of Avalon", before dying—while Gaius prepared a potion to expel the Sidhe from Elena.
Grunhilda developed a 'liking' for Gaius, to his and Merlin's disgust. Gaius tried to avoid her romance as much as possible. He thought of her as short, fat and grubby.
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.
Guinevere " Gwen "; portrayed by Angel Coulby enters the story as Morgana's personal servant, and eventually becomes the Queen of Camelot. At the start Morgana describes Gwen as "the most kind and loyal person you would ever meet".
She first notices Merlin when he stands up to Arthur when Arthur is taunting a servant. 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.
In " The Mark of Nimueh ", Merlin makes her laugh and she admits that she likes that. She kisses him in "The Poisoned Chalice". However, Merlin only loves her platonically, and Series 2 sees them as good friends with Merlin seen to be a strong advocator in her blossoming relationship with Arthur.
Merlin trusts her and often enlists her help in various ventures, most notably in Lancelot 's quest to become a knight in "Lancelot", hiding Arthur in "The Once and Future Queen" and in saving Gaius in "The Witchfinder".
Gwen is imperative in saving Arthur's life in "Sweet Dreams", and it is due to Merlin's convincing that she agrees to help. 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.
She initially has little interaction with Prince Arthur and describes him as a bully, questioning the mind of whoever would marry such a person.
However, following her father's death and her friendship with Merlin, Gwen's view of Arthur begins to change. Gwen has openly expressed her faith in Arthur's ability to triumph over the odds and lead the people into a new age of a peaceful Camelot.
Most notably, she did so as she tended to an unconscious Arthur in the Series 1 finale. However, the following morning she became embarrassed when it became clear that Arthur had heard her.
Affected, Arthur tries to be more considerate towards Gwen offering to make dinner etc. Arthur explains at the end of the episode that his father would never approve of their relationship, something which Gwen understands.
In "Lancelot and Guinevere", Gwen is abducted, only to be reunited with her old flame, Lancelot. She states that he is everything right in the world and didn't know she could feel as strongly as she could for him.
They share a kiss when it seems Lancelot will not return from fighting the bandits. When Arthur arrives to save Gwen, he realises that the flame between Gwen and Lancelot has been reignited, and he is hurt and claims that he only came because Morgana made him.
Gwen appears to feel guilt over Arthur's obvious reaction and hurt too because now he is denying that he has 'feelings' for her.
Lancelot guesses that Arthur loves Gwen and so he leaves at the end of the episode so they can be together.
She returns to Camelot with Arthur and Merlin, where she is reunited with Morgana. Gwen continues to be charmed and impressed by the changing nature of Arthur as the series continues, witnessing him blatantly defy his father's orders when told to impose unnecessary taxes.
When she visits Arthur to thank him for his kindness, she finds him doubting his father's love for him.
Gwen advises him that Uther cares greatly for him and that Arthur will become one day a great King. Gwen restores his confidence by telling Arthur he has a good heart and shouldn't change for anybody.
Apart from Merlin at times, Gwen seems to be one of the few people who Arthur respects the opinion of.
Despite past problems and outside interference, their relationship continues to flourish. When other kings from rival kingdoms came to Camelot to sign a peace treaty, one of them brought his daughter Vivian.
King Alined used magic to make Arthur and Vivian fall in love. Around this time, Gwen started to regain faith in Arthur's feelings for her, and was left heartbroken when she saw Arthur with Vivian.
Gwen kissed Arthur to break the enchantment he was under. Arthur waited in Gwen's house for her, where he apologised for his enchanted actions and that she was the only woman he loved.
Gwen accepted this, but also realises that she cannot be Arthur's queen. Arthur refuses to believe their relationship is impossible and promises things can change.
Towards the end of Series 2, Gwen and Arthur became slightly more comfortable around each other in public places.
When Arthur was injured trying to save her from the Great Dragon, they shared a tender moment in front of many although Gaius was the only one who noticed as Gwen saw to his wound.
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.
When Arthur returns from fighting at the end of the episode, Gwen runs to him and hugs him tightly. She whispers that she thought she'd lost Arthur, her open affection surprising him slightly.
They embrace, not caring about Merlin and Gaius being there, and happily walk back to the castle together.
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.
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.
The "Queen of Hearts" episode is purely about Arthur's love for Gwen. Having had a vision of Gwen as Queen of Camelot, Morgana sets them up on a picnic outside Camelot only to bring Uther to catch them and banish Gwen from ever seeing Arthur.
When Morgana realises this will not stop their relationship, she plants a bag under Arthur's pillow and suggests that Gwen has enchanted Arthur to make him act this way, prompting Uther to sentence Gwen to be burnt at the stake.
Fortunately, Merlin is able to clear Gwen of this crime by using an aging spell to give himself the appearance of an elderly sorcerer who enchanted both Gwen and Arthur to cause chaos in Camelot, the two subsequently agreeing to keep their feelings secret until Arthur is king and can change the laws that currently prevent them from being together.
During Morgana's subsequent conquest of Camelot, Gwen feigned continued loyalty to her mistress in order to wait for an opportunity to assist Arthur, eventually managing to sneak Sir Leon out of Camelot so that the two of them could join Arthur and his small band of knights.
Although Gwen was briefly reunited with Lancelot, she now appears more secure in her relationship with Arthur, kissing him before he departed for the raid on Camelot, the two sharing another kiss in the courtyard after the battle when Gwen rode into Camelot alongside the new Knights of the Round Table.
In the episode "Lancelot du Lac", Morgana brings Lancelot back from the dead when she hears that Arthur intends to marry Gwen.
Arthur asks Gwen, 'Would you do the honour of becoming my wife? Gwen, unknown to Arthur, was under the spell of a bracelet given to her by Lancelot from Morgana who intended to stop the marriage.
Arthur banishes Gwen from Camelot and Lancelot is said to kill himself. It is implied that she will return in the synopsis of the episode "The Hunter's Heart".
She does not return to Camelot in this episode, but she over hears Morgana's plans to kill Arthur. She tells Merlin she can never face Arthur again leaving Merlin to tell Arthur of Morgana's plans.
Arthur's feelings for Gwen are once again revealed when he finds the ring he gave to her, under the influence of Merlin and admits that he still loves her.
In "The sword in the stone", Arthur and Merlin ran away to Merlin's home town where they met Gwen again and after seems to forgive her.
Arthur didn't forgive Gwen fully but when he saw Isolde die he didn't want to lose her therefore Arthur openly forgives Gwen and this time he says, 'Will you marry me?
In "The Dark Tower" of season five, Guinevere is brainwashed by Morgana through mental torture—letting her see visions of people she cared about laughing maniacally at her and telling her she can trust no one but Morgana herself.
Under the command of Morgana she is made to betray Arthur in the next episode. In the episode "A Lesson In Vengeance", Gwen is horse riding with Arthur and Merlin when Arthur's horse is spooked by a minor explosion caused by magic.
The servant in charge of looking after the castle's stables is suspected. When he is imprisoned and sentenced to death, it is later revealed that Gwen was the one responsible.
When the Tier finds this out, Gwen stabs and kills him. King Arthur is poisoned by a mysterious culprit and Gwen tells Camelot that Merlin is responsible.
Merlin is later thrown in the dungeons. Gaius later finds out that Gwen has been put under the control of Morgana and vows to help Merlin uncover their betrayal to Arthur.
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. Finally Merlin and Arthur are able to free Gwen using a magic pool.
In the final episode after Arthur is wounded in battle he sends the royal seal to Gwen via Gaius, hoping she will succeed him.
When he dies Gwen becomes ruler of Camelot. Lady Helen of Mora portrayed by Eve Myles was a famous singer who was on her way to Camelot to perform at King Uther's festival, until she was possessed and killed by Mary Collins using poppet magic.
Collins then assumed Lady Helen's appearance, also serving as a romantic interest to King Uther Pendragon , in an attempt to kill Prince Arthur, but Merlin saves his life by using magic and becomes his manservant.
Helios portrayed by Terrence Maynard was a warlord from the southern kingdoms who helped Morgana to overthrow Camelot in episodes of series 4.
He was killed by Isolde a smuggler who, with her husband Tristan gave Merlin and Arthur shelter during their escape from Camelot during a duel with Arthur, but not before stabbing Isolde in the stomach, fatally wounding and later killing her.
Hunith portrayed by Caroline Faber is the mother of Merlin. She sends him to Camelot hoping that he will be able to develop his magical talents, but he soon discovers that the use of sorcery there is expressly forbidden and punishable with death.
Hunith is an old friend of Gaius, they met when he helped Merlin's father escape from Uther's clutches because he was a dragon lord, so she wrote to him asking him to take care of her son.
Merlin later returns to her when their village is attacked by raiders. She also appears in the last episode when Nimueh breaks a deal with Merlin to take his life and tries to take Hunith's instead.
This fails when Merlin slays Nimueh with magic. Hunith returns in "The Sword In The Stone Part 1" at her and Merlin's hometown Ealdor, where Merlin, Arthur, Gwen, Tristan, Isolde were hiding from Agravaine and his men.
Unfortunately Agravaine found them so Arthur could no longer remain in Ealdor. It is revealed in "The Last Dragonlord" that she cared for the fugitive dragonlord Balinor, who turns out to be Merlin's father.
Isolde portrayed by Miranda Raison was a smuggler along with partner Tristan. She discovers Merlin and Arthur who is under one of Merlin's spells and holds a sword up to them.
After taking them to her partner in crime, Tristan, and they are allowed to venture with the two smugglers for the time being. When they are invaded by bandits, Arthur, who has been relieved of Merlin's spell, saves them.
Isolde fights with a bandit behind her and it results in a slash in her arm. Merlin treats her for her injury but is made better by Merlin when they reach Ealdor.
As Agravaine and his men have found them at Ealdor, Isolde runs and hides in the woods along with Guinevere, Merlin, Arthur and Tristan.
They venture to Camelot to take back what is rightfully Arthur's which results in Isolde's death. She dies in Tristan's arms as he reveals his love for her with a kiss upon her lips after she dies.
Julius Borden portrayed by James Callis used to be a pupil of Gaius, before they parted during the Great Purge leaving Gaius in trouble.
Later he mysteriously returns to Camelot with news of a magical secret that threatens to change the landscape of the kingdom forever. He has located the final part of a key to the tomb of Ashkanar, an ancient mausoleum which holds a very special treasure: the last remaining dragon's egg.
Merlin is understandably drawn in by Borden's news, and promises to help him. However, he only wants to the egg for the sake of power. He threatens Merlin's life to achieve this, but the warlock seriously injures him with magic, and he is presumed dead after the tomb collapses.
See: Great Dragon. Kara portrayed by Alexandra Dowling was an evil druid girl and Mordred's love interest, and possibly, childhood friend.
Her only appearance was "Drawing of the Dark". 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.
Mordred saw Kara flee the scene of the Saxon attack and later met her in a forest and helped heal Kara's wound. She was stunned by the fact that he was a knight of Camelot and used him in her attempt to kill the King.
Mordred tried to break Kara out of prison, but the two were caught. Kara was put on trial before Arthur and the court, where she proudly admitted her role in the Saxon attack, her loyalty to Morgana and her desire to help Morgana in destroying Camelot and Arthur as revenge for how the Pendragon rule had persecuted many of Kara's loved ones.
Arthur offered Kara a reprieve from her death sentence at Merlin's urging if she repented her crimes, but she was blinded by her beliefs and saw Arthur as no better than Uther.
She therefore refused was hanged. Her execution resulted in Mordred's defection to Morgana and the Saxons, bringing about their foretold alliance.
Lancelot portrayed by Santiago Cabrera was a commoner who later achieved the rank of Knight of Camelot.
When his family was killed by bandits, he swore to become a skilled swordsman to fight against tyranny and save other families from suffering the same fate as his own.
In the first series episode "Lancelot", he travelled to Camelot in the hope of becoming a knight of Camelot. After saving Merlin's life from a rampaging griffin, the warlock promised to help the other man achieve his goal.
This would prove difficult since according to the knight's code of Camelot, only noblemen could become knights.
Merlin soon forged a seal of nobility and introduced Lancelot to Guinevere, who helped by creating clothes suitable for the son of a lord.
Shortly thereafter, Merlin then introduced Lancelot to Arthur, who, after a rocky beginning, eventually agreed to test Lancelot's skills and consider him for a knighthood.
After another attack by the griffin, Arthur sped up Lancelot's training in order for him to join the other knights in the coming battle against the creature.
However, Merlin and Lancelot's deception was quickly discovered by Uther, who knew the man that Lancelot was claiming was his father, and the king ordered Lancelot's arrest.
Arthur, however, released him shortly thereafter, admitting that Lancelot fights like a knight despite his lack of the other necessary 'qualifications'.
Lancelot then followed Arthur into battle against the griffin and with the help of Merlin, defeated the creature with an enchanted lance.
In the aftermath of the battle, Uther reluctantly considered restoring Lancelot's knighthood, but the man refused the honor, since he did not wish to take full credit for destroying the griffin when Merlin's contribution was so critical.
Determined to prove himself worthy on his own terms, Lancelot departed Camelot after promising to keep the secret of Merlin's magic.
Lancelot's life after leaving Camelot was not an easy one, and he was forced to sell his sword skills for the entertainment of others.
This activity led him to come into contact again with Guinevere, who had been abducted by the henchmen of the warlord Hengist in the second series episode "Lancelot and Guinevere".
His reunion with Gwen brought up the brief attraction the two had shared during their first meeting, though Lancelot was ashamed of his situation and seemed to have lost any hope of ever achieving anything better in life.
Nonetheless, he promised to rescue Gwen and regained some sense of self-worth when she told him that he was "all that [was] right with the world".
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.
He urged her to leave him behind while he fought them off and Gwen ran, though not before swearing to him that her feelings for him "would never fade".
Lancelot was subsequently captured and sentenced to be eaten by the wildren Hengist kept. Gwen too was recaptured before she could escape.
Before they could be killed, however, they were rescued by Arthur and Merlin, who had come seeking Gwen. The obvious bond that had grown between Lancelot and Gwen caused some jealousy from Arthur, who was also developing feelings for her.
Lancelot noticed this and decided to leave, considering Arthur more worthy of Gwen's hand. He departed without saying goodbye, asking Merlin to tell her that "some things can never be".
He would not return to Camelot for some years. Presumably in the years that followed, Lancelot traveled throughout Albion.
He eventually acquired the friendship and companionship of Percival. In the third series finale, The Coming of Arthur, Part Two , the two men traveled to Camelot when Lancelot received a message from Merlin, requesting aid following Morgana and Morgause's takeover of the kingdom with an army of immortal soldiers.
They arrived just in time to save Merlin, Arthur, Gwen, and several of their friends from an attack led by Morgause and several immortal soldiers.
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.
Lancelot was subsequently made a knight again, this time along with Percival, Elyan, and Gawaine. In the ensuing battle to retake Camelot, Lancelot accompanied Merlin when the warlock set off to empty the Cup of Life of the blood that made Morgana and Morgause's army immortal.
He and Merlin fought fiercely together, and Lancelot was eventually wounded in the chamber that housed the Cup.
Nonetheless, he survived the battle and gained a permanent home and status as a knight in Camelot. DID YOU KNOW? Crazy Credits. Alternate Versions. Rate This.
