As a young prince, Arthur is spoiled, narrow-minded, and arrogant, though good-hearted at times.
Arthur was born in Camelot to Uther and Ygraine Pendragon with help of magic by the sorceress and priestess, Nimueh. Ygraine was barren and incapable of giving birth, so Uther, who was desperate for her to conceive an heir, went to Nimueh and persuaded her to use her magic to help Ygraine. However, as Nimueh used the power over life and death for Arthur to be born, a sacrifice had to be made for a life to be created and Ygraine died in the process after Arthur was born. As a result of her death, Uther despised magic and had its practitioners executed but kept the true nature of her death secret from Arthur. Arthur also had a half-sister named Morgana, who was born from an affair Uther had with her mother Vivienne some time before Ygraine's death and probably before their marriage. Arthur grew up with Morgana but remained unaware of her true paternity.
