In The Legacy of Merlin, he is presented as the most powerful Druids of all time. He is said to be the advisor to King Arthur. He lives in a high tower, protected by magic, in Camelot which can be accessed from the castle's hall. It is revealed that he is married to Nifein the Enchantress, also sometimes known as Viviane and Nimue and that he would have a son with her, Niall.
