Mythology
  • Caliburn (natively called Caledvwlch, which is the word the Knights use when referring to it) originated from the same source as Excalibur, Excalibur Galatine, and Avalon. They were originally collected by the Fair Folk and remained in their possession for several ages until they were passed into human hands.
  • Caliburn was broken following Arturia's refusal of mercy to a Saxon chieftain, a grievous breach of chivalry. The pieces then passed back into the possession of the Tylwyth Teg (Fair Folk).
  • The Pendragon line was blessed by a red dragon (natively called Y Ddraig Goch, the Red Dragon) slumbering beneath the Snowdonia mountain range in Wales. The modern Welsh flag depicts a stylised version of this dragon.
  • While such creatures as dragons, griffins, unicorns, and other stranger and more fantastical beasts did exist, they had grown rare even by Camelot's time. As they are in other realities, unicorns were revered as symbols of purity; griffins were considered living symbols of strength and ferocity, and (at least in Camelot) dragons were nearly sacrosanct due to Britain's protection by the Red Dragon. Such beasts were one and all extremely powerful, not to be taken lightly nor trifled with – unicorn hunts were extravagant and premeditated affairs. Dragons in particular are considered the pinnacle of Phantasmal Species.
