The simple plot of Merlin Seasons 1-2 DVD: Merlin has magical powers and arrives at the city of Camelot, after his mother arranges for him to become an apprentice of Gaius. He discovers that the king, Uther Pendragon, has outlawed magic and has imprisoned the last dragon deep under the city. The dragon informs him that Merlin has an important destiny to protect Uther's son, Arthur, who will bring forth a great Kingdom. When he meets Arthur for the first time he discovers that he is arrogant and a bully, but after he saves Arthur's life, he is rewarded with a job in the Royal Household as Arthur's manservant and they develop a friendship. Arthur is unaware of Merlin's magical ability, as Merlin has to keep it a secret. Morgana is Uther's ward with the power of prophetic forsight, which frightens her and which she keeps secret. Gwen is her main servant, but also a close friend.
Other characters from Arthurian legend have appeared in Merlin Seasons 1-2 DVD. Lancelot longed to become a knight, but unable to do so because of his birth as a commoner. Mordred has appeared as a Druid boy who formed a bond with Morgana (in some legends Mordred's mother) and it has been predicted by the dragon that Mordred will be the cause of death of Arthur (in the legend this occurred at the Battle of Camlann).
