Son of King Lot of Orkney and Queen Morgause of Orkney. Younger brother to Sir Gawaine, as well as brother to Sir Gaheris and Sir Gareth, and party to his clan's blood feud against King Pellinore and his children.
In 514 A.D. Sir Agravaine sought to enlist Sir Pellandres the Proud in an assassination of Sir Lamorak. Pellandres indignantly refused, and Agravaine then wounded Pellandres quite seriously in a tournament melee. The Salisburian knights have given Agravaine and his kin a wide berth.
