Summary: A Camelot still reeling from Morgana’s betrayal plays host to the visiting king of the only nation militant enough to pose a viable threat. Only, a surprising twist is revealed when the heirless king of that nation announces that the dragon lord Balinor was actually his formerly lost and disinherited brother, therefore making Balinor’s son, Merlin, the sole blood heir to his throne.

"... You see, the woman he left behind bore a son. I wonder if Balinor ever knew this? But she bore a son in the small village to which he relegated her, to keep her safe, and that son eventually came to Camelot. A mere serving boy, it seems. Tell me…Merlin, did he know you were his son?”
Arthur, who catches on only a moment before everyone else, turns sharply back to Merlin. Shock rips through him, and a sharp pain catches in his throat and fuels the blaze of sudden betrayal that flares in his breast.
Merlin has frozen wide eyed, but there is resignation in the sloping of his shoulders, and Arthur has an answer, even if Merlin has yet to speak.
