My Brain:) Sir Tristram was one of the best and gentlest knights in all the world. He was always heartily welcomed to the Round Table. He was the son of the king of Lyonesse, Melodias. Sir Gareth was made a kitchen page by Sir Key when he was just known as Beaumains. But when he took up an adventure where he fought Sir Lancelot, he was knighted by his true name, Gareth. He was able to overcome any knight that he battled with. Sir Balin was once a prisoner in King Arthur's court, but he was able to convince Arthur into letting him take up an adventure. Sir Balin was known for the Smite of the Dolorous Stroke, and later fighting his brother to the death without knowing. Queen Morgan le Fay was King Arthur's sister. Throughout the whole legend she tries to kill King Arthur, or she sends one of her damsels to do the dirty work for her. Excalibur King Arthur's
