Aredian then blackmailed the apothecary in Camelot into selling eyedrops laced with belladonna, threatening to have him burnt at the stake if he did not. This medication subsequently caused hallucinations in a number of citizens in Camelot, making them believe they were seeing acts of sorcery when in fact they were hallucinogenic visions. Aredian used their claims to stir up paranoia in the court, allowing him to accuse Merlin of using magic - ironically correctly identifying the sorcerer, though Uther and Arthur were dubious. The guards searched Gaius's chambers, however, and discovered a magical amulet which Aredian had planted as evidence. Trying to protect Merlin, Gaius claimed the amulet was his, and Aredian advised the King to punish him as a sorcerer.

Aredian went on to harshly interrogate Gaius, who was kept in poor conditions in a cell, trying to extract a confession from him. When Gaius mentioned treating [[Morgana |Morgana]] for nightmares, Aredian went instead to her to produce more evidence against Gaius. He then threatened Gaius, claiming Merlin and Morgana would also be punished if he did not confess, and so Gaius did so. Uther sentenced him to death and Aredian, claiming he did not make bargains with sorcerers, broke his word and announced that his investigations were just beginning and Merlin and Morgana were not safe.

Aredian denied the accusations and Uther sent guards to search his chambers. Unbeknownst to Aredian, Merlin had sneaked in and stashed dozens of amulets and belladonna tincture in his possessions, and then cast a spell on Aredian to cause him to spit a toad from his mouth, thus cementing his guilt. Aredian tried to use Morgana as a bargaining tool, holding a dagger to her, but Merlin's magic prevented his escape by making the dagger red-hot. Aredian then lost his balance and fell to his death through the window (''[[The Witchfinder]]'').

Aredian was ruthless and was only concerned about catching a sorcerer, real or not, and claiming payment[[File:Merlin887.jpg|thumb|left|159px|Aredian exposes the sorcerer]] for his services. He was indifferent to the wellbeing of other people and went as far as framing Gaius for sorcery by placing a magical amulet in Gaius' chambers and blackmailing him. Aredian also did not hesitate to break promises and claimed he never bargained with sorcerers. He was also secretive and never revealed his methods for catching magic users. This, along with the fact that he possessed a magical amulet, could imply either magical or otherwise underhand tactics. Aredian was condescending, speaking disrespectfully to Uther and calling him lazy and idle. He was also dismissive towards Arthur and though he claimed he knew Arthur's reputation as a warrior, he rather arrogantly declared that he had no need of him. Aredian was a pitiless and seasoned manipulator, but also a hypocrite who upturned bargains he made with people for the sake of getting what he wanted. He almost matched, if not surpassed, Uther's own cruelty towards sorcery, since Uther at least forgave Gaius' involvement in magic despite knowing full-well of it; Aredian did no such thing.
