As Merlin looked up, he recognised the face of Sir Iwan, one of the knights of Camelot. Sir Iwan had been seen in the physician's quarters frequently for the past two weeks, having been needing regular checkups for the broken arm he had received during the efforts to overthrow Morgana. Merlin hadn't had cause to speak to the knight for longer than brief conversations in the past, so didn't know much about him aside from the things he had heard in passing from Arthur and around the castle. The middle of four siblings, Sir Iwan prides himself on his status, not deviating from the knight's code for anyone. Arthur has said in the past how the knight is sometimes reckless, and puts his desire to not be seen as a coward over his life. It was this recklessness that caused the injury to Sir Iwan's arm, one he wouldn't be forgetting in a hurry.
Merlin sympathised with the knight, as although not one himself, he knew how badly his friends would take the news were they hurt enough to be forbidden from taking part in knight activities. Especially being forced to miss out on the first tournament that Arthur as king was hosting. Gwaine would be driving everyone mad were he in that position, and although a lot more reserved than the ale-loving knight, Iwan must be finding it hard to find things to do around the castle to keep himself occupied.
Looking up at the tall knight, he shifted, grabbing the pieces of armour scattered around him before struggling to his feet. "Yes, I am. Arthur is having me polish his armour collection before the tournament tomorrow. As well as a multitude of other chores." He darted a glance at the arm in the sling, before returning his gaze to Iwan's face, "Were you in need of anything from Gaius?" He asked, trying to make up for causing the knight unintentional pain, "I'm sure he is in in his chambers, but if you'd like me to check I can do so after I've dropped Arthur's armour off in the armoury."
