He and Kay are two of the six knights chosen to accompany Culhwch on his quest and it was said “and although he was one-handed no three warriors drew blood in the same field faster than he”. He was alongside Arthur and Cai in dealing with King Gwynllyw of Gwynllwg’s abduction of St. Gwladys from her father’s court in Brycheiniog.

He is one of Arthur’s loyal allies he helps Arthur and Kay fight the Giant of Mont St. Michel, and joins Arthur in his war against Emperor Lucius of Rome.

He is Arthurs foster-brother and counsellor.

A very muscular man. Along with Kay. He is one of the handsomest warriors who ever at Arthur’s Court. Despite the fact that he has only one hand, Bedevere is renowned for his skill with the spear. He is a close friend of both Arthur and Kay, probably due to the time they spent together as youths, and has accompanied them on many quests. It is foretold that it will be Bedevere who Arthur asks to return Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake.
