Kilgharrah, also known as The Great Dragon, is a mighty and ancient dragon who was imprisoned and chained in a cave beneath Camelot by Uther Pendragon at the end of the Great Purge where he was left for around 22 years. He is said to be more than a thousand years old. He was Merlin's mentor, friend, and spiritual brother. When he meets Merlin, he tells him of the prophecy regarding his hand in uniting the land of Albion with Arthur Pendragon. He acted as a magical guide where Gaius' counsel would fail. Merlin later reluctantly repaid this great debt by freeing Kilgharrah when he had to acquit himself of a promise, being aware of the very possibility that Kilgharrah will seek revenge and attack Camelot. The dragon then turned on Camelot in a fit of vengeance, seeking Uther's demise. He was calmed by Merlin, who had taken on the powers of a Dragonlord. He continued to aid Merlin during his adventures, and played an essential role in the events that led to the battle of Camlann.
