King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, the knights, and Valiant and Arn travel to Velquin to establish a treaty with King Edward, who is unfamiliar with their system of justice but more open to it than his sister Sedyssa, who flirts with Arthur and disrespects Guinevere. The night after their arrival, someone slips Arthur a poisoned drink, forcing Merlin's help to be sent for and Valiant and Arn to search for those responsible. They learn that Mordred is involved, hoping to finish off Arthur and thus Camelot's power and any chance that it will succeed abroad. Written by
