Ygraine: Uther loved his queen very much and when she died giving birth to Arthur, he was devastated. His sorrow was so strong that he began persecuting the thing that he believed caused her death: magic. Twenty years after her death he stills mourns her, saying to Nimueh that Ygraine was his heart and soul.
Arthur Pendragon: Uther was very critical of his son, spending a great deal of time ordering him around like a second-in-command or scolding him. However Uther cared about Arthur more than anyone.
Morgana: Uther had a somewhat strained relationship with Morgana, his adopted daughter. While he did care for her, his constant executions of people who use magic often put him at odds with Morgana. He was also unaware that she was a witch. After Morgana was found hiding a Druid boy he was trying to locate, Uther told her that he would not hesitate to break the promise he had made her father if she ever betrayed him again.
.:Occupation:. King of Camelot
.:Current Location of Residence:. Camelot
.:History:. Uther had ruled Camelot for over twenty years. After discovering his queen, Ygraine, was unable to have children, he sent Gaius to the Isle of the Blessed to ask the sorceress, Nimueh, for advice. Wanting to help her friends, she used magic to allow Ygraine to conceive an heir. Unfortunately at the time, Nimueh didn't know that by using magic to create a life, another life had to end in order to protect the natural balance of the world. As a result, Ygraine died in childbirth. Heartbroken over the loss of his beloved wife, a grief-stricken Uther turned on Nimueh, accusing her of treason and banishing her from the court. He then began The Great Purge, ordered the executions of hundreds of sorcerers, good and evil alike, as well as banning magic from Camelot. The purge ended with the capture of The Great Dragon, who was imprisoned beneath the castle to serve as an example to all magic users.
Uther can be a tyrannical ruler who will stop at nothing to set things right in his eyes, especially if magic is involved. He believes that all magic are evil, and all those who practices magic are evil. A few years later, Uther took in Morgana, the orphaned daughter of his close friend, Gorlois, who died when Uther did not provide the reinforcements he had promised the other man. He and Morgana often fight with one another, most notably over Uther's policies concerning magic, but they still share a deep bond with each other. Uther married a troll though he saw though the spell where he thought everyone was against him.
