|List of Appearances:||The Wicked Day|
The Gleeman was a circus master and an assassin who arrived in Camelot around the time of Arthur's birthday, ostensibly to provide entertainment at Arthur's feast. In truth, he had been sent by Odin to assassinate Arthur.
When the celebration began, he tricked Arthur into participating in a circus act which involved being strapped to a spinning wheel and the Gleeman attempting to use a knife to strike an apple in his mouth. Arthur survived the performance, and ate the apple in the process. Unbeknownst to him, the apple had been drugged so when Arthur visited his father's chambers that night, he succumbed to the drug and the Gleeman knocked out/or killed the guards, then he attacked. Arthur attempted to defend himself, but the drug made his attempts obsolete. Just as the Gleeman was about to kill him, Uther appeared and fought back.
An intense sword fight broke out and Uther succeeded in killing the assassin, but not before he was fatally wounded. Uther died to his injuries days later do to the act of Agravaine de Bois, and Morgana Pendragon.
The Gleeman was a cynical and cold man. He was deceptively intelligent and would stop at nothing to complete his mission. The Gleeman was also exceptionally self-confident and believed himself capable of defeating Uther Pendragon, who was himself a tremendously talented swordsman.
The Gleeman was a master of knife throwing, able to throw the weapons with perfect accuracy. He was accurate enough to effortlessly throw a knife into an apple in Arthur's mouth from an impressive distance. He was also a highly talented swordsman, being able to contend against Uther Pendragon and repeatedly cause him to lose his balance, although he eventually perished at the hands of the king. However, he managed to strike down Uther at the same time with one of his knives.
