Morgause was the eldest daughter of Vivienne - who was also the mother of Morgana, thus making Morgause and Morgana maternal half-sisters. She was a skilled warrior, a powerful sorceress, a High Priestess of the Old Religion and after the death of Nimueh, she replaced her as Camelot's most dangerous enemy. Morgause was eventually badly wounded by Merlin and Gaius, and a year later, physically weakened, she chose to be sacrificed by Morgana at the Isle of the Blessed, so the spirits of the dead could enter the human world and attack Camelot and the villages around it

  • Only known person besides Lancelot, Helios, and possibly Morgana who has managed to defeat Arthur in combat
  • Sent the entirety of Camelot into a deep sleep; the only beings immune to this spell were Kilgharrah and Morgana, although the latter was only immune because she was the source of the magic
  • Used the Cup of Life to turn Cenred's army into immortals, usurping control of the soldiers in the process. She then used the army to conquer Camelot and put Morgana on the throne
