Sir Bedivere was a Knight of the Round Table and an adviser to King Arthur due to his intelligence and deductive reasoning. He often acted to counter the low intelligence of his liege. He was integral to working out the new ways of space travel and the space vessel Camelot itself.

Description

Appearance

Sir Bedivere has dark hair[Pan 1]. He wore lighter armour than most knights and his tabard is sky blue with a sigil of a white, leafless tree upon the chest that represents wisdom. He also wore jam-jar, thick-rimmed spectacles to correct his vision[Pan 2].

Personality

Intelligent though fairly humble. He would diplomatically question King Arthur's wisdom and intelligence by seeking awareness or confirmation of Arthur's knowledge. He is quick to educate Arthur on titbits of knowledge that he believes Arthur will understand. Bedivere is well-adjusted and sees the deliberate provocations of Morganna le Fay and Sir Kay and refuses to rise to their bait[Pan 1]. He would prefer to command troops with strategy than go diving into battle himself. He would often ramble on about trivial details that stray far from the original topic at hand[Pan 2].

Talents

Lore

Sir Bedivere is knowledable, if unorthodox, and, along with Merlin the Younger, is often sought for his intelligence[Pan 3].

Possessions

Inventions

Sir Bedivere has a penchant for inventions that are often unorthodox and will seem logical and sensible to him, but not most people[Pan 3]. As well as the more practical creations, Bedivere also has a hand in aesthetics as he would be the one to design the tabards for the various knights, which are meant to represent who each of them are behind the helmets[Pan 4].

Giant Wooden Rabbit

In order to reach Camelot, Sir Bedivere devised a gigantic wooden rabbit structure that everyone could climb and get into the ship[Pan 3].

Space Tabards

When spacesuits were found aboard Camelot, allowing the knights to venture onto hostile planets safely, Sir Bedivere created tabards to go over their spacesuits and depict each knight's insignia (just as their usual armour had done). He committed to creating new suits, and tabards, after the first batch were used to explore Venus[Pan 4].

Main article: Camelot#Living Quarters

The living quarters aboard Camelot are all uniform and the humans are used to their varied and expressive homes on Earth. So many took to writing their names on doors. Sir Kay went one step further and drew a stick-figure of himself, complete with red hair. He also drew a goofy picture of Sir Bedivere on his door, which was then enhanced with a small stick penis by King Arthur[Pan 3].

History

Space Camelot

Raising Camelot

As one of King Arthur's most intelligent and worthy advisers, Sir Bedivere is invited to a secret and informal meeting at Tintagel Castle to discuss the finding of an ancient space ship beneath Great Britain itself. Bedivere is sceptical until Arthur confirms it was Merlin the Elder that explains the function of the ship and that the only way to raise it from beneath the landmass is to force a huge surge of magical energy into it. This magic would have to come from Morgan le Fay's sacrifice of her magical island Avalon[Pan 1]. Merlin the Younger is sent to Mount Snowdon with Sir Kay, Sir Bedivere and the Aes Sidhe witch Shalott to watch for the rising spaceship, Camelot, from the Irish Sea. Instead of coming up in the sea, however, it comes up from beneath Ireland itself and threatens to send the entire island into the depths. Shalott calls upon other Aes Sidhe to aid her in saving the land and balancing the whole island again while Kay and Bedivere are attacked by the Afanc. A mental communiqué to Vivane at Stonehenge informs Morganna, who is rising the ship, to move it slightly to the left and avoid destroying all of Ireland[Pan 5]. In order to reach Camelot, which was airborne, Sir Bedivere devised a scheme to build a giant wooden rabbit that the people of Britannia could climb up and reach the ship. When the ship left Earth, Bedivere, along with most people, was on the Observation Deck to watch the moon go by[Pan 3]. After finding Mercury to be a boring rock in space, King Arthur fast-travelled the ship to Venus instead. There they discovered life on the planet and knights were sent on an away team. They were red-tabards and they were melted by the acid rain of Venus. Spacesuits were discovered aboard Camelot and Sir Bedivere designed new tabards to go over them, complete with knightly designs, and committed to creating new spacesuits for all the knights. As a result of the trip, a rockman named Andy joined the Camelot Crew[Pan 4]. When Camelot arrived at the planet Mars they found a fleet of perennial ships there, under the command of Chancellor Ctatherine of the Jupiterian Empire. They revealed to the humans that they had found an identical ship to Camelot in orbit around Mars, which they had called The Hopeful. Admiral Ltexi requested to temporarily join the Camelot Crew so that she could compare Camelot to The Hopeful for better understanding[Pan 2].

Ltexi introduced the humans to the Kryptons of the planet Saturn, the sixth planet in the solar system. Sir Bedivere was assigned to the political ambassadorial group that went down to the X-Krypton City to open negotiations with the X-Kryptons. When they join the leaders of the city, Bedivere asked The Black Knight to remain on guard outside the custodian house[Pan 6].

Ltexi introduced the humans to the Kryptons of the planet Saturn, the sixth planet in the solar system. The Kryptons had not achieved space flight so Mordred hoped to keep up the pretence that they, humans, had. Bedivere was part of the diplomatic envoy that went to the X-Krypton City to initiate diplomatic talks, which was entirely his element as he was able to discuss British history at length. The Black Knight remained on guard outside the X-Krypton Custodian House at the behest of Sir Bedivere. After lengthy discussions with the three Custodians, Gamma Pans, Omega Wier and Phoenix Tram, a sudden attack on the city was announced. Before the knights could debate on whether they ought to assist, The Black Knight rushes into battle. The group find the raiders and help to defend the X-Kryptons along side Gamma Pans. The Kryptons wore protective liquid armour and use energy weapons to attack the knights. Their conventional weapons were thwarted and even the magic of The Faerie Knight is absorbed by the armour. The magical weapons, Clarent, of Prince Mordred, and Arondight, of Sir Lancelot are much more affective. Gamma Pans interrogated one of the captives and discovered, through a marking on the man's palm, that they were G-Kryptons who are meant to be allied with the X-Kryptons. Because of this betrayal, the X-Kryptons would declare war[Pan 2].

Notes

Britt's Commentary

"Sir Bedivere in Space Camelot more closely resembles Sir Bedivere[Ext 1] from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, rather than Bedivere from Arthurian[Ext 2] legends." ~ Britt the Writer
