Duke Gorlois has been a rival to Uther since their exile in Brittany. He is a skilled warlord and a favourite of King Aurelius Ambrosius.

Gorlois is noted for his loyalty to his beautiful wife and his tremendous personal courage. However, he is getting old and has suffered many wounds —
his sword is sharp, but his arm is weak. (He has lost stats from aging.)
