The Destined One looks so young, innocent even. But the shadows in her mesmerizing eyes speak of pain, loss and fear. Fear of me, yet she still fought me with a courage I have not seen from many females. The moment I felt her soft touch, something inside me broke. All I want to do is possess this girl. It’s a need I cannot seem to fight, yet I know I must--my first duty is to my King. ~ Galahad
In most Arthurian stories Galahad is the son of Lancelot but that is NOT true in my version. In Legendary Galahad is the cousin of Lancelot by way of adoption. My Galahad is definitely not the one found in books, he is still brave, honest, and very loyal, but he is also quiet, and has been known to brood something fierce and he communicates better with actions than with words.
Of all the Knights of the Round Table Galahad was always the strongest, fastest and the best swordsman. Only Arthur and Gwaine (or Wade as he is called in Legendary)had the skill to best Galahad as often and Galahad bested them.
After swearing his oath to Queen Titania, Galahad found himself ambushed by a gargoyle then captured and imprisoned by the sidhe. Spending hundreds of years trapped by the sidhe’s magic changed Galahad in many ways. But then, as Lancelot explains, magic always has an effect on those whom it touches; it can reshape your entire being.
The things I love most about Galahad are his passion, his bravery and how deep his loyalty runs to those fortunate enough to earn it. Galahad was always Arthur’s most loyal knight, and still is, but after meeting Aliana, things changed and Galahad gives Aliana a very different kind of loyalty.
The loyalty of his heart.
But learning how to balance those two loyalties is no easy thing. And many, including some of his brother knights, don’t believe it is wise for him to give Aliana that loyalty so freely. But everyone has their darker side, even heroes, and Galahad has a particularly bad one. His deep loyalty also make him possessive and at times overprotective of those he cares about. He will do whatever necessary to take care of those who are his, but taken too far, that has the ability to shatter everything in a person’s life. Yet those feelings don’t come from nowhere, something has to happen to a person for them to develop such intensity; and that something is usually pretty terrible.
Okay, I’ve been debating about posting pictures of the two guys who first inspired Galahad’s look and after weeks of debating it, I’ve decided to go with it. Honestly these guys are just too darn HOTTTTT to not share them. So without further delay here are the two biggest influences on Galahad’s appearance.
Till next time lovelies!
