If you have seen the TV show called 'Merlin', a BBC production, (go figure, they always make the best stuff), then your probably going to think I'm insane when I say this.. So here goes.
Out of all the shows I've ever watched, and all the books I've ever read, to this day Morgana Pendragon remains in my top favorite character's list. If you've seen Merlin your probably experiencing some degree of shock at this moment. How could I love such an evil, brutal character?
To me there is so much more depth to Morgana then a lot of people realize. She became the malevolent person she was, by her own fear, and hatred of her father the king. I can understand that, she suffered in paranoia wondering if what she was made her a bad person. When she met her half sister Morgase she was introduced to a new world, where magic wasn't feared, and where Morgana herself was someone of power and prestige. Who can blame her from leaving behind the cage Uther had created for her, and joining her sister, the one person Morgana felt loved her for who she really was. Morgana didn't leave much behind as she entered her new life, except for a version of herself. Someone who was truly kind, and cared about others. Eventually, hatred, revenge and other feelings erased that from her completely. She became the enemy most of us know her as.
This is where your going to be flabbergasted... The main character in my book is actually loosely based off Morgana in appearance and personality. Not only is Morgana a character I can relate to, but fitting into her comes like second nature. So you can see what a big fan I am of her now!
One thing that never changed though was her love for the druid boy. Not only did she take a huge role in saving his life, it was like she became his mother as well. The one person Im certain she loved was the boy, even if she cared for no one else besides him and Morgase.
If you haven't seen Merlin, I sugesst watching it! Its pretty clean for the most part, and if not I probably skipped the episodes so I couldn't tell you much about them even if you wanted me to. Thanks for reading!
