It’s Sunday and time for a change of the Archetype of the Camelot Guard. Thank you for the trustworthiness and truthfulness of Bedivere, but now we move to study Bercilak.
Before I read the book, I search Google to see what else I can find out about him, before I read what John has put into words. I instantly though, want to step away when I see how crazy Will seems to have drawn this fellow!
Now, given the story behind this fellow, being enchanted by Morgana Le Fay and sent to challenge the Knights of the Round Table, I can understand a little the look in this fellows eyes. Love his trousers Will!
He’s not to be messed with, that I have already worked out. He knows what it is like to be dis-empowered, for when Morgana sent him into the Court of King Arthur, he had no choice, he could not force his own will to manifest. As it turns out, he was beheaded by Gawain, though he still stood after the beheading and bid Gawain to visit him in the Green Chapel one year after. This happened at Christmas time, so we’re just after that as I post this entry. (The further story is on Pages 104-5, not 102-3 as stated on P24)
The skills Bercilak has are varied and wide. He’s a Hunter, lord of the Moorland, so he’s good at hunting out things that are hidden. He’s one person who will challenge you, determined that you will be able to stand up for yourself and walk your own path, no matter what fears you may have that you cannot verbalise. However, he is at your side to help whenever the task seems too great.
What a character for the coming week, right after a Leo Full Moon in Aquarius! Yikes!
