Rowanne, Sir Bryant, and Denys are all completely original characters, but each could be interpreted as having at least a few similarities to ones in Hal Foster's comic strip. In the comic, Valiant and Arn both love Ilene, while in this show they are both shown to have feelings for Rowanne (albeit the situation that has the two reflecting on what this means for them while this is true is temporary). Though not a Moor, Sir Tristram is one of the earliest friends made by Valiant and often seen with him and Sir Gawain, very much like Bryant. Although not related to anyone noteworthy as Denys was, Geoffrey also found himself free from a cruel home situation, fell in with Valiant, and became the most-developed of all his squires.

A Great Cartoon and a Link to Website Devoted to It
This was a great cartoon based on a long-running comic strip that presented an intriguing look at Arthurian legend. It had great continuity and realistic characters that developed over the course of its 65 episode run. Adventure, romance, humor, and family themes were all part of the show - in other words, something for everyone. Personally, Merlin was my favorite character because of his wisdom and his humor. Merlin was always on top of the situation, and there wasn't a character on the show who did not respect him as a friend, mentor, or adversary. >
