A Celtic Giant from the legends of Britain. He is the half-brother of Moraunt, the King of Ireland who attacked Cornwall. When the King led this attack successfully, they asked King Mark for tribute. This caused a battle in which Morholt was killed by Tristan the nephew of King Mark and Queen Elizabeth of Lyonesse. However Tristan left the fight with a poisoned wound. His wounds were healed by the beautiful Iseult who became his lover.
