He hated losing his temper, especially in front of Gwen. It reminded him of when he used to fight and argue with their father and he detested being reminded of that and reminded of the guilt he still carried around with him every day. He listened to his sister, and the anger in her voice was unlike anything he'd ever heard from her. He'd never know her to ever hate anybody, dislike maybe but never pure hate. It just showed what Morgana had done to not only the kingdom, but its people too. He never wanted his sister to feel such a dark emotion, but he couldn't protect his sister from feeling. "I'm sorry you had to feel this way, but I think all of Camelot share that emotion." He knew he did, and probably all of those Morgana terrorised in her brief takeover.
She went on hesitantly to tell him what happened when she came to help take back the kingdom. "I fought her." Elyan's eyebrows almost immediately rose up in surprise. He hadn't been extremely surprised when Gwen had said she'd helped in the fight to take back Camelot, but he hadn't thought she'd actually fought Morgana herself. Despite the circumstances he couldn't help a proud smile from stretching across his lips. "I knew those sword lessons would come in handy," he chuckled. His teaching methods hadn't been entirely conventional however seeing as they'd used sticks and twigs as children instead of real swords. Not until he was older, had has father actually allowed him to wield one of the many swords he'd made. Even then he'd been reluctant to allow Gwen to wield one, but that hadn't stopped Elyan sneaking off and teaching his sister anyway. They hadn't been actual lessons but it was all good fun, even with all the cuts and bruises they'd both gained along the way. He smiled at her warmly and spoke sincerely. "I'm proud of you, Gwen, truly." There was no denying his sister was a warrior at heart now, he thought smiling.
"I asked her why she wanted me dead, what had I done to make her hate me?" He listened intently as she continued. He shared Gwen's thoughts of stopping Morgana and put a comforting hand on his sister's arm. "We will stop her Guinevère." He hardly ever used her full name but felt the need to now. "Do you know why?" He asked her, smiling softly. "Because she no longer knows what it means to be loved." Morgana had given that up the second she decided to pursue power instead. "She doesn't know what it means to be loyal to family or to friends." He'd almost feel pity for her if her heart hadn't turned so dark and cold. "In the end, that will be her downfall," he said with all the conviction in his heart. He hugged his sister then with all that he was worth resting his head on her shoulder, even through the pain his sudden actions caused. He would never allow anyone, especially a heartless witch hurt her again. He believed his words with his whole soul, because he knew that the only thing that someone could do to seek revenge and hate like Morgana did was to wholeheartedly sacrifice love.
