One day while out on a camping trip in Wales, a young Wiccan man from London in England came across a hidden cave - accidentally falling into it and tumbling down into a cavern. Inside was a sparkling lake while crystals covered the walls. While looking at the lake, he got a shock as from the water, a glowing spirit appeared before him.
An even bigger shock came when the spirit introduced herself as 'The Lady of the Lake' before presenting the young man with the legendary blade Caledfwlch - better known as 'Excalibur' - that was once again sheathed in the mythical scabbard that was once thrown into a lake by Morgan Le Fay. The Lady of the Lake then explained to the man that King Arthur would soon be reborn and that he would have to prepare for the return of the Once and Future King. After explaining this, the man found himself back out on the surface with the sheathed Excalibur next to him.
Not long afterwards and while still wondering what to do, he was approached by an elderly man. The man, dressed in robes with a long grey beard, identified himself as been Myrddin Emrys (the wizard Merlin). Merlin offered his aid to help the man prepare for the messianic return of Arthur.
Returning to London with Excalibur concealed by Merlin's magic, the man waited until the Full Moon at midnight before following Merlin's instructions and beginning a spell to initiate Arthur's return - after Merlin had transported the two of them to the top of The Shard. Soon, the ground begin to shake as a thunderstorm brewed above - leaving the moon uncovered as its light shone down on London.
To the shock of everyone below, the island of Avalon appeared above the skies of London, hovering in the air as the night lit up with multi-coloured streaks of lightning stretching across the sky. As the bystanders below watched, a beam of golden light shone down from Avalon to the top of the Shard before a red dragon - with fire blazing from its wings - flew down from the floating Isle and flew around the building.
Below, more surprises came as the river Thames changed colour into a clear and crystalline blue that began to glow while on the ground, the concrete roads that surrounded the Shard shattered before blinding beams of rainbow light shone upwards from the Earth beneath to the top of the building, with an orb of sparkling light forming in the middle between the rainbow and golden beams.
The young man then watched as Excalibur and the scabbard it was sheathed in was surrounded by an indigo aura before been levitated into the growing orb of light while the Dragon also changed into a stream of read flames that entered the orb. Soon after, Avalon disappeared in a pulsing shockwave of energy that affected everyone across the city - temporarily giving them visions as they were momentarily freed from the 'hive mind' of society.
On the ground, the roads were restored to normal while the river's glow slowly subsided. The crowds continued to watch as a news crew recorded the extraordinary event from their helicopter as, sure enough, the orb of light began to shrink down.
As the camera's rolled, the orb of light eventually became a white aura around a unknown figure before only surrounding Excalibur - now unsheathed and held in the stranger's hands.
The young man who summoned Arthur fell to his knees in awe before the stranger walked over to him and gently pressed his gloved hand against the man's head. The young man was then transported to his home with his memory of all that had happened been made dormant until the time would be right to remember.
The resurrected Arthur turned to Merlin and thanked him for helping him to return. Merlin accepted and stated he would always be with Arthur to aid him, before shape-shifting himself into a golden scepter, which Arthur grasped in his left hand. Upon grasping the scepter, Arthur gained access to Merlin's power as well as solidifying his connection with Heaven and Earth. Looking at the helicopter above that had now been joined by others, Arthur used Merlin's magic to broadcast his voice and reveal his true identity to all. Soon after, Arthur leapt from the tower as a pair of blazing wings like that of the red dragon appeared on his back as he flew over London before disappearing into the night sky.
Since his 'messianic return', Arthur has set out to retake his rightful place as King as well as to right the wrongs that run rampant throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
