Mordred (also Medraut, Modrot, etc.) has a certain degree of notoriety as a legendary traitor. Generally his mother is Morgause, half-sister of Arthur. Often his father is Arthur, either the product of an accidental incest, or in some cases, not only deliberate incest, but incest forced on his mother (you are apparently not allowed to use the word for non-consensual sex on Polyvore). A product of sin, he's generally depicted as evil, though some would argue his reign would be better on the people with less crazy super-quests than Arthur's court.

He, like others, appears to have lusted after Guinevere. In some tales, he captured and beat her but she escaped, in others, she consensually marries him. In their final battle, both Arthur and Mordred are mortally wounded. Mordred is not taken by Morgaine and the other priestesses/sorceresses to mystical Avalon. He dies and his brothers are killed by Lancelot and his men.

Mordred appears in Dante's Inferno in the innermost circle of Hell, called Caïna, where those who betrayed their kindred in life are buried in ice up to their shameful faces. Mordred is referred to as "him who, at one blow, had chest and shadow shattered by Arthur's hand."

I hoped that you would do one for him, and you have brilliantly!
Non sequitur: Polyvore's censorship is really quite ridiculous.
