Fictional Character
    Most likely fiction; if not, would have lived in or around the mid-6th Century
    Sometimes called Modred, Medraut and Medrod in Welsh tradition
    Powerful lord and knight during the Dark Ages; Infamous traitor in Arthurian legend
    Son of Morgause (Morgan Le Fey); Frequently depicted in legend as King Arthur’s illegitimate son
    Fought King Arthur to the death at the Battle of Camlann, fatally wounding him in the process
    Portrayed by Roddy McDowall in the Broadway musical, ‘Camelot’; later played by David Hemmings in the film adaptation of the same name (1967)
    His name sounds like 'morbid' (and is synonymous with treason).
    Fan art tends to depict him as a Medieval counterpart to Edward Cullen.
    He was a serial rapist who regularly got away with it.
    He was intensely jealous of his half-brother, Gawain.
    He was conceived during a night of passion between King Arthur and a married woman (who he would later discover was also his sister).
    When Merlin prophesied that the mistake would eventually destroy Camelot, he convinced Arthur to round up all the children born on May Day and put them out to sea, in hopes of killing Mordred (the plan failed).
    He led his brothers in the ambush of Sir Lamerok, whom he stabbed him in the back.
    He leaked information to his father/uncle that his wife, Guinevere, was cheating on him with his favorite knight, Lancelot.
    He pushed to have the Queen burnt at the stake for adultery, but she was saved at the last minute by Lancelot.
    When Arthur moved to invade France as retribution, he (stupidly) left Mordred in charge of his kingdom.
    He forged letters claiming that Arthur has died in the invasion of Lancelot's lands.
    He crowned himself king and made Guinevere his personal wench.
    When Arthur and his army returned, they faced off on the River Camel; he gave Arthur his death-wound before dying of the wound his father had inflicted on him.
    He is one of the greatest 'villains' of English folklore.
    His mother was an evil sorceress who probably corrupted him.
    He was raised as a deserted child after surviving the infamous May Day massacre.
    He somehow managed to make his way back to the Round Table by the age of fourteen.
    Thomas Malory had him defend Sir La Cote Male Taylé against the insults of a rude woman who doesn't want him along on her quest, in 'Le Morte d'Arthur.'
    He was never satirized in a Monty Python sketch (but he should have been, because it would have been hilarious).
    He was an early template for the character of Edmund in William Shakespeare's 'King Lear' tragedy.
    Modern interpretations tend to depict him sympathetically - what with the whole 'illegitimate father trying to kill him' thing and all..
