A son of Lot and Morgause and younger brother to Gawain. He is not always distinguished from his brother Gareth in the romances, the possible result of the splitting of a single character. Gareth marries Lyones and Gaheris marries her sister Lynet in Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur. Gaheris also slays his mother when he discovers her with Lamorak, the son of Sir Pellinore. Gaheris and Gareth are killed in the fighting that follows Lancelot's rescue of Guinevere from the stake.
