Character Bio

Agravaine photo
Agravaine ~ "Finally, you will get all that you deserve, old friend".

Agravaine was shown to be manipulative, bitter, vengeful, intelligent and treacherous. He could also appear warm and friendly, able to hide his true nature from everyone in Camelot apart from Merlin and Gaius, just as Morgana had done in her last years in Camelot. Agravaine was vehemently against both Uther and Arthur, probably blaming the former for the deaths of both his siblings and the latter for Ygraine's death when he was born.

Agravaine's bitterness towards Uther and Arthur caused him to join Morgana when she turned against them, seeking to take his revenge and to help her take over Camelot, believing she would be a better ruler than Arthur and Uther. In addition, to his Machiavellian nature, Agravaine was also sharp and quick-witted, able to lie his way out of several dangerous situations where his true loyalties were almost exposed, such as lying to Gwaine to prevent being accused of trying to kill Gaius and convincing Arthur he was not the traitor in Camelot.

Despite his darker nature, Agravaine appeared capable of genuine emotional attachment. Although it is unknown how close Agravaine and his siblings were, it presumably was his grief over their deaths which caused him to turn against Camelot.

Agravaine seemed unaware his attempts to kill Arthur dishonoured his sister's memory. He was unfailingly loyal to Morgana and seemed to care for her. Upon finding her unconscious in the woods after her duel with Merlin, he took her to safety and watched over her while she recovered. He also professed his deep loyalty for her despite her frequently-shown lack of affection for him and her repeated threats against him. Agravaine was also less willing to cause innocent people to suffer, evidently uncomfortable with Elyan's torture and hesitant to carry out the order Morgana gave for the people's crops to be burned.

Despite this he ordered the gates of the castle closed when the Dorocha attacked Camelot, willing to leave Camelot's people outside and sacrificing them to the Dorocha. In this case, however, Guinevere believed his actions were done out of fear rather than indifference to the people's well-being.
