Aredian established himself as a mercenary witchfinder, making a name for himself by selling his services of hunting down [[sorcerers]]. He had a distinct lack of concern for others and cared solely for his payment, but had a sufficiently impressive reputation for [[Uther Pendragon]] to seek his services when he believed a sorcerer was present in [[Camelot]] after [[Merlin|Merlin's]] [[magic]] was witnessed by a peasant woman. Having previously met [[Gaius]] at some point in the past, the two were not on good terms. Aredian immediately began interrogating various members of the household, starting with Merlin.

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.
