For every to, there is a fro, for every stop there is a go and that's what makes the world go 'round
Arthur was completely oblivious to his destiny, as are his friends of Camelot (with the exception of Merlin) and foster family
Arthur is also blissfully unaware that he is the son of King Uther, The previous King of England who died before he could produce an heir. Or so people say...
He was given the nickname 'Wart' at a young age, due to him asking a lot of complicated and annoying questions that most of the time people were too busy or simply unwilling to answer, so he turned into a constant pain. Despite the meaning behind his nickname he takes no offence to being called "Wart"
Arthur used to live Camelot with his foster family, now he lives in the royal castle of London
Lady Sybil the wife of Sir Ector found Arthur as a baby beneath a tree wrapped in a blanket with a letter addressed to Merlin on it. Despite the letters wishes she kept Arthur herself
After Lady Sybil died from pneumonia when Arthur was four years old Sir Ector took over on looking after him
Merlin means the world to him since he was the first person to think he was a somebody and would never do anything to hurt or betray his mentor.
Arthur Loses his temper at the drop of a hat when people ,good and bad, approach him trying to make a bargain with him to sell Merlin out.
Archimedes has a secret sense of seeing through liars, it's because of this he trusts very few humans he meets. The only person who knows about this skill is Merlin.
Arthur has a major sweet tooth
He has a fear of snakes
He is very fast for his age and can out run many of the knights.
Arthur secretly wants to learn white magic to help people but fears of the responsibility and danger that can come with it.
He can use a bow and arrow better than he can with a sword and even then he struggles
Even though Arthur can't read or write, since meeting Merlin he can now correctly recit the Alphabet up to "J" and can read his own name and Merlin's
Arthur's ears turn bright red when he's embaressed
Arthur hates formalities such as "sire" and "your highness" and tried to avoid them when possible
he also tries to avoid wearing his crown in royal events, this due to the fact that it often slips whilst wearing it so he often holds under one arm, like how a soldier would hold a helmet
Due to England's high crime rate due to no firm laws being held for twelve years, Arthur disguises himself as a peasant and uses his old nickname (Wart) when travelling to avoid the risk of robbers and bandits
Arthur carries around the legendary sword in the stone ((not to be confused with Excalibur)) on him, most often when he's in his peasant disguise, according to Merlin the sword magical properties that are yet to be discovered))
