Superhuman Powers: Morgan Le Fay is one of the most powerful sorceresses in the history of Earth. Her magical powers are derived from three major sources. Due to her faerie heritage she possesses innate personal powers such as the ability to control minds; she also possesses abilities all humans potentially have, such as the ability to engage in astral projection. She also has the faerie ability to manipulate mystical energy, often through spells and enchantments of ancient Celtic origin, an ability she has honed through practice. Finally, she has abilities as a high priestess of the Earth goddess (Gaea) by invoking her Celtic name, Danu.

History

History: Morgan le Fay is half-human and half-faerie (hence her name “Le Fay”). The faerie are an ancient race of humanoid beings with supernatural powers that originated from an other-dimensional world that borders upon Britain and Ireland on Earth. They are closely related to the Dark Elves of Svartleheim, one of the Nine Worlds of Asgardian Cosmology). Morgan Le Fay is said to be the daughter of Gorlois, Duke of Tintagil and of his wife, Igraine. Igraine also bore King Uther Pendragon a son who became the legendary King of Camelot. However, Morgan’s faerie nature indicates at least one of her parents must have been at least part faerie. Presuming Gorlois, who was apparently entirely human, to be her true father, it would seem that Igraine must have least been partly of faerie descent. However, Morgan’s half-brother Arthur was entirely human, and Morgan’s own faerie talent for magic did not manifest until she was past puberty. Morgan’s unusual hair color and her vast potential as a sorceress are both traits due to her faerie descent. Since she was part faerie, she also ceased aging upon reaching adulthood.

Morgan and her sisters were schooled in a nunnery after the death of her father, upon which Igraine became wife of Uther Pendragon. She learned the arts of sorcery from the greatest sorcerer of the Sixth Century, Merlin. But although Morgan had persuaded Merlin to teach her magic by promising to be his lover in return, she did not keep her pledge. Morgan mastered the sorcery from the ancient Celtic religion.

Morgan became queen by marrying King Uriens of Gorre, a section of Ancient Britain following the departure of the Romans. They had a son, Sir Ewain, but she actually kept several lovers behind her husband’s back. Uriens greatly supported Arthur, which just made her hate Arthur even more. Among her lovers were Sir Accolon of Gaul, Sir Hemison and Guenivere’s cousin Guiomar.

Morgan hated King Arthur and frequently attacked him in his knights or at least made problems within Camelot. Her motives were many. She wished to rule Britain herself. She despised Arthur for promoting Christianity and rejecting their ancient Celtic goddess-worship. She also loathed Arthur because of his father Uther Pendragon’s illicit relationship with her mother Igraine. Nevertheless, Arthur trusted Morgan and gave her a castle of her own, Castle Le Fay.

In Morgan’s first recorded plot against Arthur, she stole his enchanted sword Excalibur and its magic scabbard while Arthur laid wounded in the nunnery after battle against the Saxons in 415 AD. (The wearer of the scabbard would lose no blood, thanks to its magic, no matter how seriously he was wounded.) She had the sword and scabbard replaced with exact copies, which lacked enchantments. Morgan presented her lover, Sir Accolon, with the true Excalibur and magic scabbard, and told him that if he killed a particular night the next day, he would become her husband and the next king of Britain. According to Morgan, this unnamed knight’s death would make it possible for her to kill King Arthur and her husband, King Uriens. Accolon fought the knight the next day, unaware his armored opponent was really King Arthur himself. Armed with Excalibur, Accolon seriously wounded King Arthur, who nevertheless fought back with great skill and courage. Yet, Arthur might have been doomed had not Merlin’s lover, the sorceress Nimue used her powers to force Accolon to drop Excalibur. Knowing that Accolon’s sword was the true Excalibur, Arthur seized it and quickly defeated Accolon, who then realized Morgan’s plot. Horrified to learn his opponent was King Arthur himself, Accolon repented before dying of his injuries. Until now, Arthur had fully trusted his half-sister Morgan, but now he swore a vengeance upon her. He regretted giving her a castle of her own, but he could not take it back without laying a siege.

Shortly thereafter, Ewain thwarted Morgan’s attempt to murder her husband King Uriens. She assuaged the youth’s fears and made him keep it a secret on promises to restrain her treachery. Learning of Accolon’s death and the failure of her plot against Arthur, Morgan became enraged and herself stole the magic scabbard herself and hurled it into a lake. She then returned to Gorre intent on further harm on Arthur.

Morgan attempted to make Alisander le Orphelin, the nephew of King Mark, her paramour and even tried vamping Lancelot, preferring to keep only one lover at a time. After the death of Sir Hemison, she kept Lancelot imprisoned in her castle and tried to get him to share a bed with her. The tryst might have been to tarnish his sterling image, turn him against Arthur or just because he loved Genevieve.

At some point, Morgan sought and took possession of the Darkhold, the book containing the greatest number of evil magical spells on Earth, many of which had been inscribed in it by the primeval demon Chthon. Morgan gathered together a number of students of occultism whom she called the Cult of Darkholders and together they traveled into Europe to use the Darkhold to raise Chthon himself, hoping to force him to do their bidding. But Chthon proved to be too powerful for even Morgan to control and she and the cult only narrowly succeeded in imprisoning him again beneath Wundagore Mountain..... ((there was more but it was all Marvel universe))
