Merlin, played by Colin Morgan

Merlin comes to Camelot to study under Gaius, in science and sorcery. After saving prince Arthur's life he is appointed his servant and is at his disposal. He makes friends with Morganna's servant Gwen, but he also gets her into trouble. He makes friends with Lancelot, and he continues to save people's lives.
Guinevere (Gwen), played by Angel Coulby

Gwen might only be a servant but she is noble at heart and counts her mistress Morganna as a close friend, despite the difference in their station. Although it's not certain, this is presumably not Arthur's Guinevere, as she is a servant and unlikely to be matched to the future king of all the Britons under any circumstances, such marriages being far more tied to alliances than attractions.
The Great Dragon, voiced by John Hurt

The Great Dragon Kilgharrah has lived for centuries and knows all the secrets of the past and prophecies of the future. For now he is a great hope for Merlin in fulfilling his destiny, but Merlin should remember that the dragon is not happy just to give advice and receive nothing in return.
Morgana, played by Katie McGrath

The orphaned ward of King Uther, Morganna is a feisty, spirited girl and her beauty is unparalleled in the kingdom.
Gaius, played by Richard Wilson (1)

Gaius knows magic, he also knows science, so he is the medic of the town, he is also a good friend to the king, after being with him for many years. Gaius has managed to keep secret that he knows magic, he remembers the past but also knows some of destiny.
Prince Arthur Pendragon, played by Bradley James (1)

Prince Arthur is a strong fighter and good leader. He sometimes argues with his father but tries to bring peace to the country that will someday be his. He orders Merlin to do a lot of things, but trusts him with his life.
Uther Pendragon, played by Anthony Stewart Head

King Uther hates magic or sorcery, he remembers it from before Arthur was born, he only remembers the bad though, although since Merlin arrived he owes his life and kingdom many times to Merlin.
