Arthur, King of Time and Space


The knight in Pellinore's color standing with adult Mordred is Sir Percival. Sir Percival has appeared previously in a cameo in the MASH arc, and his eventual appearance in the baseline arc was foreshadowed last month. Percival was the main protagonist of the Grailquest story till the invention of Galahad, and is again in the film Excalibur which despite claiming to be a faithful adaptation of the Morte leaves Galahad out.

At the beginning of Percival's story he comes upon the Grail Castle and witnesses a procession which includes the Grail. Because he's been brought up in seclusion by his mother instead of in knightly ways, he's too polite to ask, "Whom does the Grail serve?" Later he learns that, had he asked, he would have learned that the Grail Castle king was suffering from a chronic wound that Percival could have healed almost by asking that question alone, thereby avoiding the consequent quest. Also, there's a point during his quest (I can't tell from the online Morte I use whether it's before or after he learns the consequence of his manners) when someone who comes on him asks him how he's doing, and his reply is, "I do neither good nor great ill."
