In the Queen of Air and Darkness Morgause raises four boys She is not a good mother and she does not give her boys a sense of right and wrong She often ignores them for days at a time and beats them when they displease her She acts as if they were pets rather than human beings to be loved or not at her convenience But despite this common maltreatment the boys turn out very differently Gawaine is the oldest of the boys and in many ways the most normal He becomes a knight in Arthurs court fighting for him loyally The way in which he is affected by his upbringing is his rages When provoked Gawaine goes into a berserk rage in which he does things he would normally never do When Gawaine and Agravaine are arguing over whether or not to write a letter to their father about the knights Agravaine refuses to say he is wrong so Gawaine goes berserk and attacks him He does not simply beat him but chokes him and slams his head against the floor until Gareth pulls him off If Gareth had not been there Gawaine very well might have killed his younger brother Gawaine even kills a women when worked up to a rage These rages are a product of the unhealthy childhood he endured The next child Agravaine is probably the least well adjusted of the four He tends to be sadistic and self-centered The children were told the tale of the King of Ireland by St Toirdealbhach the tale where the king gets a head wound and can not be excited but then he dies while trying to defend his savior Agravaine does not see any point in putting ones self in danger to protect any one else He says It was silly it did no good because he does not understand the principal behind the story
