Servant of Lady of the Lake, around 30.
Being a witch, depending on your power on your lady, you would choose Christianity only if it could free you from being influenced by others.
“I live thanks to my Lady, yet she is dying. What shall be with me after she is gone?”
You were a gift – human sacrifice to the goddess of the lake, the last one which ever happened. You were supposed to drown but the Lady of Lake, Viviane, left you alive and returned you to the ground. You had become her priest. But your village had been burnt during the war and you were seeking refuge in her kingdom. Viviane decided to accept you because she was running her own little experiment and needed help – she accepted a human child, Lancelot, to raise him as her own.
You proved yourself to be useful because Viviana was completely strange to being a human and she was hungrily accepting all your advice and tips. You could see how she is changing like her heart is growing and she is developing human emotions and feelings.
She sent you to the court of King Claudas to see how Lancelot’s brothers are doing. While being there, you became Claudas’ lover to strengthen your position. You met Morgana (who might barely remember you as you were a servant), Claudas’ son who was an arrogant prick, Claudin, his second son, so small and adorable, Mordred, a poor tortured kid full of growing hatred, and both Lionel and Bors, Lancelot’s brothers.
As Lionel was growing up, he discovered there is something weird about your behavior. He pressed you to tell him the truth, so you revealed you are a servant of the lady of the lake sent to watch over them. He forced himself onto you and you let him because he threatened to tell Claudas about your mission.
One day, Mordred provoked a fight between Doris, Bors, and Lionel. While Bors was pressing Doris down, Lionel smashed his head with a bust before you could prevent it. You quickly took them to Viviana. Mordred was brought to the lake soon after, but Viviana didn’t feel comfortable next to him and sent him to Morgana.
Lionel kept forcing himself on you. He adored you and developed some sort of love towards you. In time, you took some liking in him as well and even slept with him consensually. Yet he could never outshine Lancelot, the man your heart was truly beating for.
When the boys grew older, you persuaded Viviana she should take them to the court of King Arthur. You became a messenger between the two of them, since you were spending some time in Camelot, and some time in the Lake. Everybody grew older – only your youth was preserved through the power of your Lady. Lancelot’s heart stayed true to Guinevere. Bors became a Christian. Lionel became the king of Benoic. He still loves you and never married anybody.
You know about Balin – a man whose parents had been killed by Nineve, the other lady of the lake.
Yes, you are older than all of them, around fifty by now (you forgot to count), but the magic of your lady keeps you young. Now, you are travelling with your lady to the court.
Viviana: she gave you everything: life, youth, power, home. You taught her to be more human – as much as she could ever be. But in the end, you are still a servant. Is it enough for you?
Lancelot: you knew him since he was a child. How weird to love someone who is almost like a son to you. But you do. You can’t help yourself when you’re around him.
Lionel: He loves you, but he raped you. He could be your husband and maybe a ticket to your new life, but is this what you truly want?
Bors: He loves you. He is so alone. You pity him, but you cannot love him back.
You served your lady and her “sons” with love throughout your life. But Viviana is dying. You are afraid. What will be with you when she is gone? You don’t feel ready to depart.
- You are old. Will your youth disappear when Viviana is gone? Maybe you should ask her.
- You might talk to Merlin and ask him how to sustain your youth. You might tell him it was Viviana who locked him in the underworld.
- Maybe you can talk to Nineve and ask her to sustain your youth. She might ask for something in return though. Maybe you can tell her who killed her lover? You know it was Balin Ill-fated.
- You have always wanted Lancelot, and since you keep a young body, it still burst with the passion of youth. You are decided to get him this time. Threaten him that if he will refuse you, you will reveal his secret. Persuade him to marry you. Other possible subjects to marry are Lionel and Bors. Both uncertain, and not that desirable.
- You can also ask your own kingdom from Morgana. If she will give it to you, you might give her Guinevere. But not Lancelot. You love him too much to lose him.
